Finally, It is fitted with a black leather-covered recoil pad and Kalahari leather sling.

The top of the rifle’s floorplate proudly displays the rifle’s unique series number, ‘X of 12’, inlaid in yellow gold, followed by the Rigby ‘double R’ logo. The centre of the floorplate is engraved with the face of an old dagga boy buffalo, accompanied by “Dagga Boy” engraved in yellow gold, and the rifle’s calibre, ‘Cal. .416 Rigby,’ also in yellow gold.

Each rifle is housed in a brown leather case, bearing the “Dagga Boy” label, alongside the rifle’s unique serial number. The case comes complete with a full set of accessories. As part of the set, each special edition includes an exquisite nine-inch Bowie knife, labelled “Dagga Boy”, and is adorned with the Rigby ‘double R’ logo.

Additionally, a limited-edition Rigby Dagga Boy book, numbered and signed by Rigby’s managing director, Marc Newton and is a compilation of all the hunting stories submitted to the inaugural Rigby Dagga Boy Award.
