Rigby (London) bespoke .416 Rigby Magnum, 1987, tapered octagon, integral rib, express, Marcus Hunt engraving, royal pedigree

J. Rigby & Company (London, Paul Roberts era) .416 Rigby Magnum. Created in 1987 by special order for the late Lord Nunburnholme (Mr. Robert’s close friend and Godfather to his daughter), serial 6521 is built on a much-modified and painstakingly refined BRNO CZ magnum action. BARREL: While it is difficult to decide where to begin a proper overview of a rifle that exhibits this degree of quality and has so many nuanced features, the metalwork is what catches the eye and captures the heart in the end. Rigby/Roberts produced just four rifles with octagon barrels (two with a heavy profile and the other pair with a lighter tapering contour (from 1.0 inch to .715-inch). The subject is one of the latter. The barrel begins a scalloped transition into octagon flats 1.175 inches ahead of the massive front ring. The rib rises from the top flat and maintains a consistent .535-inch width to the muzzle. In order to remain parallel to the axis of the bore, the rib gradually increases in height until it stands .050-inch higher above the top flat at the muzzle than it did at the scallop. Amazingly, the front sight base is also machined from the rib and dovetailed to accept a beaded blade front sight. (Two additional sight blades ride under the trap door in the pistol grip cap.) The surface of the rib is serrated for much of its length, broken only by the polished section sporting the maker’s banner. ACTION: The true magnum-length action effortlessly swallows and cycles even live rounds absent the slightest resistance. The rear (square) bridge has been carefully altered to accept Rigby’s superb quick detaching mounting system. Not only does this design return the optic to zero time and again, it is quick to operate and clears the entirety of the ejection port so as not to impede ejection or recharging under pressure. Operation is true controlled-round feeding from the follower (the drop box holds four rounds and the extractor has not been modified to “snap over” a thumbed round). Bolt operation is effortless. The original side safety button and shroud have been replaced for the better with a contoured shroud and three-position wing safety. The bolt handle is straight and contoured so the knob tucks in just right for fast operation. Checkered with five bordered teardrop panels and engraved with a floral tip, no aspect can be improved. The serrated floorplate release button is tucked into a recess just ahead of the trigger guard in such a way that a hunter can run his thumb down the face of the guard without visual confirmation should a situation require opening the floorplate without looking away from big something or other that seems displeased. STOCK: Created by either Mark or Ian Crudginton, the stock is dressed with a wrapping, bordered checkering pattern of 20 lines-per-inch diamonds and properly dimensioned for holding down and tight to enable fast recovery. Integrity is assured by a crossing bolt at the glassed lug, along with twin aluminum bedding pillars. Three recessed sling swivel attachments are present, two in the conventional positions and the third just aft of the pistol grip. The cheek rest is of generous size and accented with both a scalloped edge and shadow line. A trap door cap adds appropriate and meaningful utility. ENGRAVING: Marcus Hunt engraved the legendary adorsed Rigby “Rs” on the trap door, the sighting lines, “Safe” on the shroud and the serial number over the guard each in gold. He also created the ribboned “J. Rigby & Co. 5 King Street. London” address on the rib, circled the front attach screw with “Made In England” and carefully executed the caliber designation on the floorplate. Additional embellishment includes regulation distances (50/100/250) to the blades, “Rigby’s Special .416 Bore For Big Game” over the front ring and sprays of supporting vines as border accents where needed. Company name, serial and caliber also appear on the rings. An initial plate on the toe line remains blank. OPTIC: A Swarovski Habicht 1.5-4.5x20A scope with plex reticle is included and remains is fine condition. DIMENSIONS: Weight is 10.8 pounds with optic. (A mercury tube for recoil reduction has been installed in the butt and weighs approximately 1 pound.) Length-of-pull is 14.3 inches. CONDITION: The bore is strong, with sharp rifling. Metal finish is approximately 85 percent, mostly from thinning at the action (the carry/balance point, likely from sunscreen-covered hands). As refurbished by Paul Roberts, the stock stands at over 90 percent with a scattering of modest field impressions, scuffs and loss at the sling swivel pivot points. The price is firm and layaway is available. $22,500 plus shipping.

Outstanding custom Browning Hi-Power 9mm pair by Terry Tussey, American Handgunner cover, near pristine, Roy Huntington collection

Superlative pair of custom Browning Hi-Power 9mms by Terry Tussey. Made for Roy Huntington and the subject of a 8.33-page cover/feature in the 3-4/2009 issue of American Handgunner Magazine, these pistols represent the practical extremes as well as the apex of John Browning’s brainchild. Serial 215RP23589 has a 6-inch KKM Precision barrel. The slide – more correctly “slides” as what you see are two slides flawlessly welded together – is topped with a Novak blade front sight (imbedded circular brass bead) and a Millett adjustable rear sight. The hammer and trigger system was sourced from Cylinder & Slide. This one is on a steel frame, appointed with elegant stippling, finished with hard chrome and (currently, as the ivorys pictured in the article were borrowed) wearing a pair of signed Esmeralda grips. Accuracy? This one is good for 1.5 inches at 25 yards, time and again. Serial 245PZ90782 is based on an aluminum frame and a short “Detective” slide from Argentina covers the 3.8-inch barrel. The sights are green/red fiber optics of low profile. Of course, the curve of the slide wears the same stippling as the big girl’s straps. Possibly the most compelling feature is the SFS trigger system by Cylinder & Slide. Details are in the attached article but for now all that needs to be said is that it is love at first touch. Accuracy? Around 2.0 inches at 25 yards if you squint just right, less than 2.5 if you don’t. CONDITIONS: Both pistols have been carefully handled and remain about 98 percent. The top rear of both grip panels on the long slide have drying cracks. ROY HUNTINGTON has written over 2,500 firearm-related articles since his first effort was published by Guns & Ammo in 1982. While his editing career actually began at Police Magazine, industry-wide recognition came after he was named editor of American Handgunner. Roy became the publisher of American HandgunnerGuns and a host of special editions presented by the Firearms Marketing Group in 2004He remained at the helm of American Handgunner until semi-retirement in 2021. Roy still writes features, a column for American Handgunner and creates a significant amount of video content. His knowledge of all things gun combined with his famous sense of humor shines brightly through all of his work. PROVENANCE: A personalized letter from Roy Huntington will be sent to the purchaser. A copy of American Handgunner Magazine carrying the article is also included. NOTE: Several other Huntington-owned handguns are presented concurrently. The price is firm and layaway is available. $15,000 plus shipping.
