It seems things have been brewing out in London lately...

John Rigby & Co. (Gunmakers) Ltd


Looks like they're bringing the Rigby Bissel Rising Bite back, and look at the prices!

Okay,
what sthe deal with the name as compared to the "other Rigby" that uses Merkel actions. Obviously there are some semantics in the name to get around what was sold to the US firm, or am I off on this one. Strange happenings for sure.

Brian-


I can't speak for the legal arrangements.
What I can say is the guys who are involved in the effort are not related to the California company, and that they are very serious about the venture and their machines have been running around the clock.

Expect to see the first examples on the new website very soon.

I very much look forward to viewing, handling, and hunting with one of their round action side lock ejector double rifles!

Interesting. I just checked the California site, they both use the same name.
Will be interesting to see how this all works out.
Interesting how this all comes to be.

would love to see one of the new rising bite rifles.

Are the guns being built in the UK by UK trained folks?

I couldn't find any info about this on the site.

This is their listed address:

OWD-


So far the site shows a page for the craftsmen.
It appears Mr Marcus Hunt will be taking their engraving commissions.
Mr David Mitchell will be doing the finishing.
Two names as yet, both of them are long-standing top-shelf London trade master craftsmen.
Neither of these guys is known to lollygag with sub-par efforts.

From what I've heard, the actions and locks are being built in London by London craftsmen.
I'm guessing these guns and rifles will bear no resemblance to the Paso Robles Rigbys.

Saw it on Nitroexpress.
It seems the people behind it are the right people.

Might just be the case.

Some see opportunity in disaster!

This needs watching. The Rigby name is in dispute with three people claiming the right to use it. Two in the UK and onein the US.

Let's see what transpires but at present there is smoke and mirrors. I can't say as much as I know but this is likely to get interesting.
