Davey Hughes Photo credit- Tweed Media-2The world’s third oldest gunmaker, John Rigby & Co., has named New Zealand hunting personality Davey Hughes as a global ambassador and distributor for all Rigby products in New Zealand. Davey, the founder and owner of the world-renowned New Zealand-based Swazi outdoor clothing brand, will be creating a Rigby showroom dedicated to the London gunmaker at Swazi’s North Island headquarters in Levin.

Davey has hunted all over the world, from the Arctic Circle to Tanzania and embodies the spirit of true Rigby adventure. He is a dedicated conservationist and is a passionate advocate of encouraging young people to get out and experience the world’s back country for themselves. For his own adventures, Davey will now be hunting with one of Rigby’s Big Game rifles in his favourite calibre, the venerable .416 Rigby.

Speaking about his new partnership with Rigby, Davey said: “I am absolutely thrilled. As a young man, I dreamed of having my very own Rigby like my heroes, the great African hunters and my fellow New Zealanders Captain ‘Samaki’ Salmon and Temple Perkins. This has now become a reality. With the release of the Rigby Big Game rifle I am certain many other New Zealand hunters will also come to realise their dreams of hunting with the a Rigby are now even more obtainable.”

Rigby’s Managing Director Marc Newton said the firm was delighted to have Hughes on board: “It’s great to have someone so charismatic and well-respected representing us around the world and helping us service customers in New Zealand. We can’t wait to see what Davey will get up to with his Big Game.”
