John Rigby, London. Extremely fine double rifle in .470 NE, ca. 1900. Weight: 9 ¼ lbs. Stock Dimensions: 14 3/8”x 1 ½”x 2 ½”x straight. Superb new 26” chopper-lump steel barrels proofed in 2005 have absolutely brilliant bores and retain 100% black finish. I/r rib with multiple rear sights and ramp front sight. Beautifully scroll-engraved classic bar-action “rising-bite third fastener” action with extended top tang. Traces of original color hardening remain on breech faces, action flats, and knuckle. Double triggers, ejectors, bushed firing pins, non-auto safety. Beautifully restocked in highly figured walnut with horn pistol-grip cap. All engraving is crisp and action is tight and mechanically perfect showing no evidence of wear or abuse. Overall a superb, very accurate, working gun by the best of all maker’s.
