Classic Mauser 66 Sliding / Bolt Action rilfe in 7×57, a caliber to surprise anyone who has not, as yet, had the pleasure! It was not chosen by Rigby as his favourite without GOOD reason. Its othername IS THE .275 RIGBY!
People say they dont like this type of action as it can be off putting as you bring the bolt back to load a second round ?
Ive yet to see anyone keep their face against the stock as they load a second round if they are busy watching the results of the bullet strike on whatever has been shot (as they should). Unless, of course, its paper.
These were, in effect, the first production inter changeable barrel rifles available and handle amazingly well. Compact, accurate and superbly engineered as all MAUSER Mauser rifles are this still retains good colour to the action and barrel.
Double set adjustable trigger to finish things off. Personally I like these rifles but agree they fall into the ‘Marmite’ catagory….you either LOVE them or hate them!
Mounts and scope will be required but I CAN source these so scope option / choice is wide open to suit you.
