London gunmaker John Rigby & Co. has revealed its latest high-end rifle in the form of the Highland Stalker. Rigby spared no expense in its reveal, unveiling the rifle to the sound of bagpipes in front of crowd toasting with Rigby whiskey at the IWA Outdoor Classics show in Germany.

The Highland Stalker is meant to be marketed as a traditional deerstalking rifle, and is inspired by the same small-caliber rifles that Rigby produced at the turn of the 20th century. The name—which, as one might imagine, pays immediate tribute to the Scottish Highlands—was chosen because Rigby regards the locale as the birthplace of stalking.

The rifle will be available in both men's and women's versions. Rigby and its traditional partner, Mauser, took three years to develop the Stalker, which features grade 5 wood as standard, traditional Rigby pattern iron sights, an ambidextrous stock, rounded grip shape, hand-finished chequering and original-style engraving. The rifle weights 7.8 lbs, and will be available in .275, .308, .30-06, 8x57mm and 9.3x62.

The Highland Stalker ships with an MSRP of $8,995.
