Always my favorite single shot actions, I had been looking for a decent .303 for sometime. This one will do until I get the action I am building into a rifle done. Restored in the UK, I will have some clean up to do on the outside of the barrel as it once upon a time wore a scope. Should be a fun one. You hardly ever see a cased Gibbs sporter.

Maybe it is the camera angle, but that stock looks very tall and perhaps difficult to shoot with irons. Nice looking rifle for sure.

The little Gibbs arrived and I do not believe that the case is original to the rifle.

On the bright side it is built on a small action and weighs 6lbs.
