Just curious, in the States many consider the Rifleman's Rifle to be the Winchester Model 70 pre 64.
What is the equivalent in Britain, the Rifleman's Rifle that was the favourite hunting rifle among British sportsmen and gun writers throughout the Empire, and a base to build a fine custom sporter? Was it an Enfield, Rigby or Jeffery....or any other name?
Thanks for the replies thus far. The question was inspired from my sitting by the fire, enjoying my Yorkshire Christmas and reading about the history of the London gunsmiths, and hunting throughout the Empire. British hunters were once second to none [or still are ], so there must be a Rifleman's Rifle....Mauser based hmmmm.
