This Bespoke Defender Was Built For Overlanding & Hunting Trips

Founded in 1775, John Rigby & Co. is an elite firearms manufacturer best known today for its ultra-premium and ornate hunting rifles. In addition to its hand-engraved long guns, the British brand also dabbles in collaborations, having previously debuted co-branded knives and bottles of whiskey, just to name a few. However, JR&Co’s latest joint effort is unequivocally its most significant to date, with the firearms firm partnering with West Sussex-based Land Rover specialist Kingsmen Editions to deliver a bespoke Defender 130 hunting and overland 4×4 rig.

Known as the “Rigby Land Rover,” the build is adorned in a custom Keswick Green paint job and features a 270° pull-out awning, a yacht-style teak wood truck bed, and an exterior roll cage with a front light bar and a pair of supplementary rear spotlights. Kingsmen and Rigby also called on Traditional English Guncases (TEG) to craft an integrated slide-out rifle drawer, opposite a second slide-out drawer that accommodates glasses and two bottles of Rigby’s 18-year whiskey. The 1990s era Defender’s interior now boasts a combination of canvas and leather and also houses a pressurized 25-liter water system, a two-person safari spotting seat, and an additional custom-fit rifle rack.
