A very nice Rigby (one of many) which exceeded its estimate by 100% as did all of the Rigby rifles in the sale despite them not being available to the US market;
An early pre 98 Mauser built into a Rigby;
As expected Rupert in his red trousers made aan appearance;
Not an isolated sighting either;
In fact its an urban camouflage scheme if you are seeking to hide in the auction room;
In fact the early lots of air pistols and rifles were selling so well that I passed my card to one of the collectors but sadly lost his number, if you are looking then this is the article, not mint but in VGC;
So a good sale for some especially if you are on the recieving end of the commission even more if you sold the lot that raised 231 000 pounds!
Sadly all the lots bar one were bid clean out of my clients maximum offers so we came away with a good Swarovski scope to fit to the Grendel project rifle which was collected today ready to be sent for rebarreling!
