In 1996 we started this pair of guns for a regular client of ours, they were to be a gift. However a few years later when the guns were ready, the recipient of the gift was 'no longer deserving'. So for 17 years, this pair of game guns have been waiting to get out of their case and into the field to do what they were made for!
Whilst these guns are standard scroll back hand detachable lock guns with our traditional pattern engraving, they have in addition, single selective triggers and two particularly nice game cameos executed by Rashid Hadi whilst he was in residence at Westley Richards. The guns are cased in a traditional Westley Richards pattern oak and leather guncase with outer canvas cover and will be available shortly on our used gun site.

Beautiful guns and I am sure they will find a good home.
I notice that they have pistol grips or semi.
Please complete my education and tell me what is the difference
between a Prince of Wales grip and a half pistol grip(if any)?
I must confess to liking a half pistol grip on shotguns even though it goes against the grain in terms of quintessential English gun(straight hand).

Neil I will post something on this when back in UK with access to illustrations. The main difference of these two grips is the radius of the curve. A POW grip is more of a gentle curve and does not protrude far below stock. A pistol grip is like a rifle grip and half pistol has reduced length.

Are those two inch guns? The shells look like it. Beautiful engraving - well done.

The shells are snap caps in this instance, the guns are 2 3/4".

what are stock dimensions and what do the guns weigh?
