Custom Rigby Big Game PH .404 Jeffery. Based on a Mauser M98 Magnum double square bridge action with serial number 10703, the original .375 H&H Magnum barrel has been replaced with a 24-inch match grade Pac-Nor machined to the original contour (muzzle diameter .785-inch). Additional custom appointments include an ERA banded front sight assembly (folding hood, fixed blade with white bead, pop-up moon bead), quick release mounting system (ERA G9 Plus, 30mm low) and shroud with a three-position wing safety. Standard Rigby features include a banded sling swivel loop, quarter rib (one standing and two folding express leafs, each with a sighting line), straight bolt handle with checkered knob and a drop box magazine with an inside-the-bow release. STOCK: Shaped from a AA-grade walnut blank, dressings include bordered 24 lines-per-inch wrap checkering, cross bolt with steel caps, traditional (pancake) scalloped cheek rest with shadow line, trap door grip cap (engraved “PH”), sling loop on the toe line and a NECG Universal recoil pad. The action rests on twin pillars and is glassed at the lug. Screws are timed and the trigger is wonderfully tuned. DIMENSIONS: Weight is 10.8 pounds and the length-of-pull is 14.2 inches. CONDITION: The bore is superb. Mechanics are smooth and solid in dry operation. Rust blue is approximately 97 percent with minor instances of rubbing. Wood is well over 95 percent, with an insignificant distribution of modest field impressions. The price is firm and layaway is available. $11,500 plus shipping
