    Charles Lancaster 416 Rigby

    Just a couple of pics of my new Lancaster 416 Rigby in progress.


















    Quite excited about shooting Buffalo, Elephant, Croc, Leopard, and Hippo with it next year for a 30th birthday present to myself.

    That's quite a 30th birthday present! Try and keep something for your 60th though. Which is roughly when my horseback moose hunt in the Yukon will take place as things are currently going, and assuming that no-one goes and melts the Arctic in the meantime.

    Dare one ask a ball park figure for such work? By all means PM if this is a bit vulgar! Sorry to ask, but I might be thinking along the same lines.

    off topic slightly but did you have any trouble getting a variation for it? did it require booked hunts/safaris etc?
