The .416 Rigby was developed in 1911 with Rigby selling their first in 1912. They made less than 200 before World War II. I don't know how many .416's were made pre-war by Griffin & Howe but certainly only a handful. A late 1930's gun which was G&H's best gunmaking era. This is an outstanding gun to either collect or use. It remains in excellent condition.
