I have a Ruger No 1 in .416 Rigby blue/Walnut and have an opportunity to buy a No 1 in .416 Rigby in Stainless/laminate. I don't need 2 {For that matter I don't hunt elephants and the wife would argue I don't need 1} Which to keep, which to sell and what are they worth?

As a fellow 416Rigby owner, I need to ask, why would you want SS/laminate in such a classic cartridge?

+1 - I wouldn't want a stainless/lamo #1, at all.


I'm sure someone, out there, would love to have yours. :)

and if you did ever find yourself hunting large grey critters... they would laugh if it was stainless... and with a plywood stock... keep the real one

This is definitely a 1st world country problem. :lol: I may be posting the stainless one on here for sale. Any ideas on realistic pricing since folks on GB are asking a bloomin mint for them?

I suppose if you were hunting big bears in coastal Alaska , the weather resistant one would be good. Otherwise Traditional ctg deserves blue steel & walnut.

Fact is that humans, at least in North America, are getting larger and larger.... when the revolution comes you might need two big rifles.... heck, if it will stop and elephant it will probably stop a Humvee. Even with that poor joke, I agree with keeping what you got... investment.

I would take the stainless version any day of the week.

Later,

What's more important to you---style or function?

I love the classic rifles in walnut/blued steel, and if you are mostly going to look at it, that's the one. If it will be a tool that sees hard use in harvesting game, go with stainless/laminate.

What matters the most, is which one do YOU like best............nothing else matters

Well since the blued one already has a scope mounted and sighted in on it. I kept the blued one. Can't afford to feed two.
Gave someone on here a pretty good deal on the stainless one.
