Now for the difference, which is slight. The Rigby woodwork is stunning. The M98 is a beauty, but the Rigbys have that slight amount of extra class and refined finish. And I do mean slight. I purposely got all three guns in their respective traditional cartridges, and Rigby keeps original owners recorded in their centuries-old journals. Rigby also includes a complimentary SCI membership for you or as a gift to someone else. When I ordered the Highland Stalker from Gordy & Sons, the salesman worked with me and spent a fair amount of time looking for a rifle that would match my Big Game’s stock color as closely as possible. Bingo, he nailed it. Both guns have that deep, rich dark mahogany color, and their finishes match exactly.
So..... Which to buy? A very, very tough call. What worked for me was the traditional cartridges constraints, even though I ended up with guns from both manufacturers. Having to choose one, though....just me, but I really appreciate the Rigbys stock woodworking so much.
Good luck.... you’re choosing between two exceptional brands.
BTW if you get MOTV, or some other service that has the show Shooting Gallery, there’s a great episode, “1902” I think, about the current Rigby company. Also, there’s a great tour of Gordy & Sons by Marc Newton on Rigby’s Facebook page.
As always....just a satisfied customer/owner here. No other ties to Mauser, Rigby, or Gordy & Sons.
