    Now how do I persuade my FLO and the Mrs Heym that one of those is needed.

    The light rifles do nowt for me (not too many mountains around here) but the modern Rigby's are very much up my street. Not too dear either considering, ~8000 here before you tick boxes, try doing that at Westley Richards. Admittedly the Rigby's are less fancy but one hell of a working gun don't you think!They're also doing a run of .275's in homage to Jim Corbett which would be a lovely special rifle to bring out a few times a year in the rut or similar.
    Any Questions Feel Free to PM me

    You can have the best of both worlds in a gently used classic rifle made by the name shops, or by top solo gunmakers, like a custom Mauser fullstock carbine, or a custom rifle built on 1903 Springfield. Some of the solo builders are as good as any of the top companies.

    Here is a Nagorski Mauser in 8x57IS, 20-inch full stock, not fancy wood, but all original. It was about 1/5 the price of a used Rigby or Westley Richards. And many have AAA wood, if you want to jump into the $5,000 range. There are enough of these in the USA, and they can be shipped to a gunshop in the UK which has a shop in the US, for just a handling fee, as they are always shipping back and forth.
