London gunmaker John Rigby & Co. has added to their range of Highland Stalker rifles by releasing their Highland Stalker Magnum Model, available to order in .300 Winchester Magnum.
The new model features a 14 1/4-inch, oil finished grade five walnut stock, fitted with a red rubber recoil pad. Three inches longer than the standard Highland Stalker, it features a 25-inch heavy sporter profile barrel.
Designed as a longer distance scoped rifle, perfectly suited for hunting the African plains, the Western US and all forms of mountain hunting, there are no fixed iron sights on the barrel. As with each Highland Stalker model it features a flame blued extractor spring, bolt release spring and magazine follower. Weighing 3.980kg and built on the traditional Mauser 98 action, the magazine has a capacity to hold 3+1 cartridges.
Marc Newton, managing director of Rigby commented: “For year’s we have been asked by our customers if we could create a rifle in .300 Win Mag, but until now it had only been possible for us to create this as London Best model. By utilising the Highland Stalker as a base, we were able to build it up as a magnum model and meet popular demands, making both an effective rifle, whilst keeping the cost to the customer down to more accessible levels.”
