Rigby Unveils Highly Anticipated Highland Stalker Rifle

Jun 21, 2017

Rigby_Highland-Stalker-launch-062117London gunmaker John Rigby & Co. unveiled its latest creation – the Highland Stalker – to the sound of bagpipes in front of a huge crowd toasting its arrival with a dram of Rigby whisky at IWA Outdoor Classics, recently held in Germany.

Hailed as a traditional deerstalking rifle, the new Highland Stalker is inspired by the same smaller caliber rifles Rigby produced at the turn of the 20th century that were used by iconic British adventurers such as Karamojo Bell and Jim Corbett. Rigby regards the Scottish Highlands as the birthplace of stalking and a title befitting the rifle.

Available in both men’s and ladies’ versions, Rigby, working with historic partner Mauser, developed the rifle over three years. The Highland Stalker features grade 5 wood as standard, traditional Rigby pattern iron sights, an ambidextrous stock, rounded grip shape, hand-finished checkering and original-style engraving. Weighing 7.8 pounds, the rifle’s magazine holds 4+1 for all calibers. A variety of upgrades are available to make these truly customized rifles.

The Highland Stalker is available in .275, .308, .30-’06, 8x57 and 9.3x62
