Edit note:

These photos had been lost until they were re-posted recently as noted below. I have archived them on the NE.com server, and I have edited the links in this post so that they are once again displayed.

Magnificent rifle in an excellent caliber!
I have pined for a 350 Rigby for many years.
One day maybe.

What a ripper! Interesting how many rifles fitted with the cocking-piece peep still retained a standing rear sight blade. If it was mine, I'd have to rationalise that.

Very nice acquisition. I'm envious!

It's not mine, but I really wish it was. It is a truly beautiful rifle.

Darn it....
I get only 1 picture, and a bunch of little boxes with red Xs in them. 15 of them.

How come I can't see the pictures?

szihn,

I originally posted these from rogerbain.com It would appear that he has removed most from his website. I still have them all saved and if you would like, I can email them to you. Maybe you can repost them.

Send me a pm if you would like them.

Matt

I know this is a bit of an old thread, but I thought these photos really should be reposed. This is one of my all time favorite rifles.

I'm quite sure I picked that rifle up last year whilst in Zim.

I think that is one of the most perfect rifles I've ever seen. It's just so...right. And it's virgin flesh remains unmolested by rude, probing scopes. That's one to sit and contemplate for a long time. Lucky the man that owns it!

And another thing: an interesting dimension I see repeated over and over again on best quality British bolt actions: the lenth of the forearm from the front of the receiver ring to the tip of the forearm will be nearly identical to the distance from the front of the receiver ring back to the trigger.

A little more is fine, a little less is fine, but that distance seems to look perfect, and is too commonly repeated to be accidental.

I agree. Thanks to MFC for bringing the photos back to life.

I like everything about the rifle: Stock proportions, forend, grip length, drop at comb and heel, rendering of the butt and pad, tasteful metal work, and excellent sighting.

I am printing the photos for my reference file and will spend much time looking at them when designing my next stock.

The typical American gun builder has never learned the classic style of the best British rifles. Even those of the much touted closely knit clan, you gents know of whom I am speaking about.

My thinking exactly. There was much discussion a year or so on another forum concerning geometric formulas for forend length. Hah! Bunch of armchair experts spouting off. Just make the forend as squarebridge says, assemble the rifle, and back off ten feet for a good look. Make small changes as they are apparent to the eye. Test fire the rifle with unfinished stock and metal in the bright, continue with minor adjustments until the form and the function are spot on for the individual shooter's shooting style. Then the final finishing may proceed.

Most Americans are spoiled by shooting a their rifles from a benchrest position. Hence the poor stock design of American rifles!!!

Anyone know the approximate period when the rifle was built?

What a ripper rifle. I agree, have to come back and have another look !!! LOL


Re the year, quickest way is to look at Auction catalogues and see what year they list other Rigby's close to the serial Number 5390. I don't have access to my records at the moment.
