The Rigby Heritage
Founded in 1775, John Rigby and Co (Gunmakers) Ltd is the third oldest gunmaking company in the world. With a reputation built on producing fine duelling pistols, fowling pieces, blunderbusses, long-distance match rifles and iconic double and magazine rifles, the Rigby name has become synonymous with
big-game hunting and firearms collecting.
The company’s technological developments in firearms and cartridge design have had a strong influence on safari hunting over the years. Of particular note is the relationship between Rigby and Mauser, which led to the production of the Magnum Mauser action – it went on to become one of the most successful rifle designs in the history of firearms. A century later, we are proud to be collaborating once more with Mauser on the development of a new Rigby hunting rifle.
The Rigby Workshop
This is one of the few places in London where the guns are made out back and sold out front. Rigby’s skilled gunsmiths are currently producing brand-new hunting weapons, as well as servicing, repairing and renovating used sporting guns of every make.
