A Westley Richards Deluxe .318 and a chance to show off 'The New Sling' for old Rifles!

I thought that having proved so popular in the previous post, I should show the new sling we have made 'in situ' on a vintage rifle, another of the old nails from my safe as one of our regular readers and  commentators calls them! The 'nail' being my signal for "I want this rifle from your safe"! When it becomes "a rusty old nail" he wants it bad!

So here is my favourite .318 from our collection, a model deluxe in really super condition, not an elaborate rifle but rather a quite plain rifle with some scroll engraving and the beautiful carved 'Fleur de Lys" checker panels. A perfect, simple and elegant sporting rifle in the classic and most effective Westley Richards .318 calibre. A very rusty old nail I believe!

    Good Day Simon,

    Yes you are correct--Yet another rusty ole nail for your followers to see, my gosh you can put lip stick on a pig...but it is still a rusty ole nail!!!! Please don't try and take my sling off this rifle sir, just send it as is, I would really hate to get the finish smuged on my new sling swivel!!!! thanks for the picture of a very unique rifle sir. It looks to me like it might have a bone bolt knob? I also like the checkering on the front of the pistol grip and the rear of the for-arm....details!!!
    Thanks again for all the effort with this blog!!!

    In Christ
