Jameson of Dublin, Ireland. The calibre .400 Rigby is believed to be an experimental version of the .450/.400 black powder Express and the rifle is sold with a quantity of brass, bullets and reloading dies. Sherman Bell has developed a load for this rifle utilising necked down .45-90 cases. J.S Jameson was born 17th April 1856 and was the son and heir to the Jameson Whisky business. He travelled widely and had a great taste for sport and natural history. He began his travels in 1877 with Seylon, Calcutta, Singapore, and Borneo. In 1878 he went to South Africa and hunted the borders of the Kalahari and in 1880 went on an extensive trip to Matabeleland and the Zambesi where he met Selous. He became well known as a friend of F.C. Selous and travelled and hunted with him from July until November that year before returning to England in 1881. Selous famously wrote of the trip in his classic book “A Hunters wanderings in Africa”. In 1883 he hunted in the Rockies on the North Foot of Stinking Water killing mountain sheep, buffalo, bears and wapiti. In 1887 he was part of Stanley’s famous Emin Pasha relief expedition and it was while still attached to this that he contracted a fever and died at Bangala in 1888. £10000 - 15000

Manufactured by Britte, a renowned supplier to the Belgian trade who counted Lebeau Courally and Aug Francotte as customers, the guns were usually retailed by Jules Bury and by Masquelier, both dealers and manufacturers of high grade arms in Liege. With it’s distinctive action, and very low centre of gravity the gun has very quick and pointable handling characteristics. The action is as shallow as it can be, and re-loading is remarkably quick. Engraved examples are especially scarce as the majority were finished in a plain way with a blacked frame and border engraving.

GAvin GARDinER liMitED’S AutHEnticitY GuARAntEE If Gavin Gardiner Limited sells an item of Property which is later shown to be a “Counterfeit”, subject to the terms below Gavin Gardiner Limited will rescind the sale and refund the Buyer the total amount paid by the Buyer to Gavin Gardiner Limited for that Property, up to a maximum of the Purchase Price. The Guarantee lasts for one (1) year after the date of the relevant auction, is for the benefit of the Buyer only and is non-transferable. “Counterfeit” means an item of Property that in Gavin Gardiner Limited’s reasonable opinion is an imitation created with the intent to deceive over the authorship, origin, date, age, period, culture or source, where the correct description of such matters is not included in the catalogue description for the Property. Property shall not be considered Counterfeit solely because of any damage and/or restoration and/or modification work (including, but not limited to, recolouring, refinishing or rebarreling). Please note that this Guarantee does not apply if either :(i) the catalogue description was in accordance with the generally accepted opinions of scholars and experts at the date of the sale, or the catalogue description indicated that there was a conflict of such opinions; or

To claim under this Guarantee, the Buyer must:(i) notify Gavin Gardiner Limited in writing within one (1) month of receiving any information that causes the Buyer to question the authenticity or attribution of the Property, specifying the lot number, date of the auction at which it was purchased and the reasons why it is believed to be Counterfeit; and (ii) return the Property to Gavin Gardiner Limited in the same condition as at the date of sale and be able to transfer good title in the Property, free from any third party claims arising after the date of the sale. Gavin Gardiner Limited has discretion to waive any of the above requirements. Gavin Gardiner Limited may require the Buyer to obtain at the Buyer's cost the reports of two independent and recognised experts in the relevant field and acceptable to Gavin Gardiner Limited. Gavin Gardiner Limited shall not be bound by any reports produced by the Buyer, and reserves the right to seek additional expert advice at its own expense. In the event Gavin Gardiner Limited decides to rescind the sale under this Guarantee, it may refund to the Buyer the reasonable costs of up to two mutually approved independent expert reports, provided always that the costs of such reports have been approved in advance and in writing by Gavin Gardiner Limited.

(ii) the only method of establishing at the date of the sale that the item was a Counterfeit would have been by means of processes not then generally available or accepted, unreasonably expensive or impractical; or likely to have caused damage to or loss in value to the Property (in Gavin Gardiner Limited’s reasonable opinion); or (iii) there has been no material loss in value of the Property from its value had it accorded with its catalogue description.
