The 275 Rigby used by Bell is one of the most famous individual rifles. Re-reading the exploits of Bell elephant hunting still gives me goose bumps (see, for example, the article by Jack Lott at http://ezine.nitroexpress.info/NickuduFiles/Africa-PDF/Africa328.pdf that was published in 1980). When I came across the production of a Ruger Number 1 chambered in 275 Rigby, I wondered why they chose to do it in the Tropical configuration. The published configuration of this rifle has a 24" barrel, a 40.5" OAL, and a weight of 7.5 lbs. As I recall, the Ruger 1-A has a barrel that is 4" shorter and is a half pound lighter. As one thing tends to lead to another, I have been looking for the dimensions of the "little Rigby" bolt action that was used by Bell. So far I have been unable to run them down. Does anyone know the dimensions of this famous little rifle?
