About Product

After a break of more than 80 years, John Rigby & Co. has resumed building the iconic Rising Bite double rifle. So called because of its unique vertical-bolt locking system, the Rigby Rising Bite was and continues to be one of the most famous double rifles ever to have been made. All models are best sidelock ejectors with dipped edge lock plates and incorporate a number of premium features as standard, including: grade 7 Turkish walnut, mirror-bored chopper lump barrels regulated to 100 yards, traditional Rigby pattern full scroll engraving, carved folding leaves on fences, gold inlaid details, colour case hardening and London Best oil finish and barrel black. Each one of the new Rising Bites will have taken up to three years to produce, making them a once-in-a-lifetime purchase for collectors and connoisseurs. The project to revive the Rising Bite has been personally overseen by Rigby’s Managing Director Marc Newton and head of production, Ed Workman, with valuable input from historian Steve Helsley and collector Davis Peterson.
