    AAAaaahhhhhhhhhh, the Rigby .256 (6.5x54) a proper calibre, even though the energy fascists would have you believe it is not fit for purpose I believe there are many animals that are dead which disprove them

    Ahhh Simon,

    Sorry to inform you but this is the 6.5x53R the 6.5x54MS is the rimless one and I do believe there is a box of that somewhere as I do have a Model 1903 Schoenauer. The clips for Mannlichers "Packet Loading System" are the give away. It was the royalties on this magazine design that led to Paul Mauser designing the staggered magazine for his rifles so he didn't have to pay Mannlicher the royalties.

    Oh yes and 6.5mm or .256" in English is the calibre 6.5x54 is a cartridge . Here is the rifle for those cartridges with some periodish accessories:-




    The rifle was built by Rigby of London .

    Rightly put in my place once again I love these things, it's probably a trickcyclist problem of some sort. Lovely to see Brit, a complete pleasure and educational too!!

    Seasons greetings, Simon
