A set of 3 Droplock Shotguns return from the Engraver.


Set of 3 Westley Richards Droplock small bore game guns.

This is the first matching set of small bore, detachable lock shotguns that we have made in recent years. Once again Frederique Lepinois has made a quite superb job of engraving the guns with a very detailed and elaborate scroll and with game cameos on the lock cover plates. The guns are in 20g, 28g and .410 and as you can see from the photographs they are all on scaled actions to suit.

The guns have been built for a long time client of Westley Richards based in Dallas, hence the Star of Texas. A client who when asked what were his favourite things (family aside) in an interview for Time or Newsweek, kindly said 'my Westley Richards guns"! I certainly hope he enjoys this shortly to be delivered set.

      They should be here when you come over, finished or nearly so hopefully!

    Truly spectacular set of small bore guns! Not much else to say.

    A treat for the eyes indeed, in fact a veritable feast! Elaborate work indeed, but married with walnut and barrels they will I'm sure be exquisite.

    Wonderful Sir, I look forward to seeing Ms. Frederique's work. Matter of fact I look forward to the entire time I will be at Westley, perhaps we can send Trigger to show my Bride the country side? I can stay at the factory and rub guns, play an apprentice role for a day or two....HAHA

    PS: Simon the most I can afford to pay you is 17.84 per hour to apprentice at your factory? and that's just for a couple of days!!!!

    In Christ

      I can agree to that, it will just about cover dinner!
