Description: Rigby .450 Nitro Express. Made in 1906 for the Honorable Captain Guy Wilson, serial number 17311 is a Class C double rifle wearing 28-inch barrels with a beaded blade front sight, filed rib, dovetailed rear leafs (one fixed express and three folders left green) and ejectors. Additional features include a barrel-mounted sling loop (1-inch), mechanical safety, bushed strikers, long forend (11 inches), drop points, steel grip cap, sling button and an initial plate (blank). ENGRAVING: The action is graced with bordered vine to 25 percent, the pattern continuing over the tangs, guard, grip cap and screws. "SAFE" appears in gold on the upper tang. DIMENSIONS: Weight is 11.2 pounds. Length-of-pull is 14.7 inches over the pad, drops are 1.6 and 2.4 inches, and cast off is approximately .20-inch. CONDITION: The bores are strong and bright. Chambers are smooth. Barrels are full on face and the opening lever rests at center. Trigger pulls, safety, ejectors and the forend latch operate positively and properly. Barrel finish appears to be a vintage refresh (markings have softened although the rib marking remains sharp), the blue thinning to approximately 50 percent with rubs and a few scattered dings in evidence. The action finish appears original with colors given over to silver. Engraving remains sharp. The guard is appears to have refreshed blue with a hint of softening to its engraving. Wood is solid. Checkering is worn and a general distribution of impressions and scratches are present. The pad has hardened considerably and bulged at the ends. ACCURACY: Fired by the consignor with Hornady 480-grain DGX bullets, an included target shows a pair of two-shot, 100-yard groups with an extreme spread of 4.21 inches and superb regulation.
