Very interesting read about Jim Corbett's famous .275 Rigby. Anyone ever come across one of these?

That is so funny you mention that. Rigby just came out with its Highland Stalker rifle and I am swooning over the dang thing. .275 Rigby (7x57 Mauser) is the signature caliber and it is basically modeled after Corbettís rifle.

Believe a while back the cabelas buda fancy gun room had one or a few. Just another one of those calibers that is forgotten about when the new flashy stuff comes along.

I am actually thinking about one in a 9.3x62. IMO that would be a perfect dangerous game rifle.

I know where there's a Lipsey's Ruger 77 African in .275 Rigby. It's been bugging me.

There was also a Ruger #1. Think they were made for Dallas Safari Club or Dallas Arms Collectors. Can't remember but another forum member has one and showed it to me.

I think I read somewhere that the .275 Rigby had a bore diameter of .288" instead of the .284" of the 7x57.

I donít know the bore diameter numbers, but I do know they are the same cartridge. Rigby just put a new moniker on the 7x57 Mauser to make it more appealing to its British clientele.

NP,

that is a beautiful looking rifle. Treat yourself, seriously. 7x57 is a very nice hunting round and a well built Mauser is a real treat to use. Buy and use the heck out of it.

Better to have one great rifle that you really love rather than several that are just ok, probably less cost in the long run too.

Lol you arenít helping Jeff. smile
In all candor, as I have gotten older the trend has definitely been towards fewer, better rifles. I have sold and/or traded several guns over the past few years to that end.

I have handled Rigbyís PH and other lines. I love everything about them, but was able resist the urge to buy one because of their size/weight.

This little rifle appears to be pure magic. As Buzz mentioned, Iíll be checking them out at the DSC show in a few days.

It was the 275 H&H and the 280 Ross that had the .288 bore. The 275 Rigby IS the 7x57.
