    Cz 550 Magnum .416 Rigby

    CZ 550 Magnum chambered in .416 Rigby. Bought of here last year, and only put 4 shots through it. Still in as new condition and is a real blast to shoot.

    Comes with a box of factory ammo, dies, brass and projectiles.

    Looking for 2k, happy to ship.Name:  1B57A7F9-ED7F-4374-9A8B-1B80D899DCF0 (1).jpeg

    Big bore shoot is coming up. This is the best rifle for it.

    I had two shots with it at the last one, it's quite energetic with that factory ammo.

    Not just 'energetic'...but 'quite energetic' tells me a story.
    You obviously survived the encounter.

    I Like "quite energetic" Marty Henry
    It aligns with another of my favourites, "memorable"

    Somewhat brisk, rather emphatic, memorable but not quite life changing, all adequately describe the experience. I also believe it was more noticeable than the 505 gibbs Friwi brought the year before

    The 505 is significantly more unpleasant to shoot than the 416. But it does have a certain mistique.

    Yes, I think Marty has forgotten exactly how much your Gibbs boots... Sounds like he needs a refresher
