Simple, elegant and rugged design

In 1875, we patented the now famous Anson & Deeley fixed lock hammerless action, which revolutionised the manufacture of sporting firearms. Its simple, elegant and rugged design has stood the test of time, and today we are proud to offer this action design in the most popular African dangerous game calibres, namely .470 NE, .500 NE and .577 NE.


“Most yearned for a slinky sidelock – a Boss, Holland & Holland or Purdey. All except me; I wanted a Westley Richards Gold Name boxlock badly.”

Jonathan Young,
The Field, 2008


World-class craftsmanship

The rifle is built by the very same gunmakers who build our hand detachable lock, and sidelock double rifles, which guarantees the same world-class craftsmanship, attention to detail and qualities that we feel our customers have come to expect from Westley Richards – accuracy, strength and unquestionable reliability. We feel this rifle is the perfect introduction to those keen to experience the sport of hunting with a double rifle.
