I believe these have been brought up before but this is quite a gun.

Hello Mike,

It looks more like an abortion to me Mike. The engraving is way over the top for a rifle and the bolt handle looks like it was ordered for some Indian potentate of yesteryear.

I've never seen the point of having a double barrelled bolt action rifle. Like the double action semi-automatic pistol it's the answer to a question no one ever asked.

If I want a 416 Rigby double barrelled rifle I'll buy a British made Double Rifle, not a bolt action, and I'd probable get a good second hand one for a lot less than 78.000.00 bucks.

Harry

It's easy to like a British DR. It takes some courage to like the Fuchs. Or maybe bad taste?
A new toy for the man who has everything, I guess.

With kind regards,
Jani

You still have to see the repeating dr Blaser built on twinned R93 actions!
