These are our “CENTRE PIECE” bolt action rifles.we have been building these “STOPPER” rifles since we developed the cartridge in 1913.Today we will build you such a piece using an action of your choice , from original magnum Mauser ( when available ) through to the most modern magnum length actions
We ,at present, have a good stock of 1930’s original Gibbs/Vickers barrels or we can supply modern British made barrels.
Rifles can be built to exactly copy the original format of the prototypes using the original Gibbs gauges and tools,or we can build the rifle along more modern lines.If you really push us hard we will fit a scope(reluctantly) but whatever you decide we will build the ultimate British bolt action African rifle.
Previous users of the Gibbs 505 include J.A.Hunter,Tony Sanches-Arino,Bror Blixen,Winston Guest and Monty Brown. The calibre and make has featured in the works of Hemingway and P.G.Woodehouse amongst others!
Phone,write or e-mail with you requirements and we will set the wheels in motion to let you own a piece of “modern” history
