Received the gun Tuesday. The packaging of the gun was great. I like the gun very much, great condition as advertised.
I was able to put some shots on paper yesterday, I think it will work for me. Possibly could use a little more cast off. Some day I would like to come out for a fitting, thats another item on my bucket list. I did have lessons once from Jack Mitchell and he recommended stock dimensions, but we did not use try gun or patterning plate.
Again, thanks for a trouble free buying experience.
RE: My double rifle
Paul – you have certainly participated in a once in a lifetime experience
already. I have dreamed of owning a double rifle ever since I started
hunting and have watched the movies and DVD’s in which they are prominent
more times than I can count (just finished “The Ghost and the Darkness” for
about the tenth time and can vividly remember Robert Redford shooting the
charging lion in “Out of Africa” with his Rigby double – a startling scene
but one that really got me going on a lion hunt, those many years ago).
I have a life sized lion target and you can bet it will have some holes in
it before I get to Africa. Thanks again.
