From an old and highly respected name and in the classic English style, a new hunting version of the Gibbs rifle, powerful enough for big game hunting. The rifled barrel is .72 caliber, as used in the Pedersoli Safari Express double rifle, which performs very well in African dangerous game hunting. The rifle is equipped with the “Ghost Ring” tang sight, clearly inspired by some models popular in the mid 1800s. The small eye piece ring enables a quick instinctive aiming at the target, while quickly shouldering the rifle, The open ring provides a clear sight picture with low light condition. The blue barrel is completed with an interchangeable ramp front sight with anti-reflection checkering.
