So far, I've met it only in
右 and 一本気. In the former ぎ sounds like "ni". In the letter, it sounds like "ni" probably, but I seem to hear "g" sound in it as well, if I'm not imagining it.
Is there indeed "g" sounds there? If so, I'd appreciate it if you try and explain how to pronounce it.

I might not fully understand the question (you kind of made it a bit confusing:), but き with dakuten (these two small dashes on the right side of き) will always make ぎ(gi). I have japanese lessons with native speakers and there was never anything else than ぎ(gi).
