A traditional deerstalking rifle
Everyone knows Rigby for large calibre hunting rifles, so the notion of introducing a new small calibre edition required considerable thought. After the phenomenal response to the commemorative Corbett rifle, Rigby realised there was a demand for vintage-looking rifles. For that reason it was decided to model the Highland Stalker on the look of the original .275 Rigby, which was the ubiquitous rifle of its time. After three years of R&D, Rigby is extremely proud of the result: the Highland Stalker’s striking slim lines and lightweight frame makes it ideal for the hill.
Launched to the sound of bagpipes
Rigby unveiled its latest creation – the Highland Stalker – to the sound of traditional Scottish bagpipes in front of a huge crowd toasting its arrival with a dram of Rigby whisky at IWA OutdoorClassics, which was held in March 2017 in Germany.
