Built with a 23” barrel on a double square bridge magnum action the rifle is fitted with Swarovski scopes on quick detachable mounts, one being a Z6i 1-6x24 for use on African game and a Z6i 2-12x50 for red stags at dusk and wild boar under moonlight in Europe. It gives me great pleasure to know it will be hunted with extensively and I have no doubt it will be put through its paces.
Black finished action with case colour hardened pins, bolt shroud, recoil bar, grip cap and floor plate release. Gold lettering throughout with our combination foresight, quarter rib and gold pyramid rear express sight, regulated at 50, 100 and 200 yards. The stock has a full pistol grip shape, grip cap with trap, ebony forend tip and slim leather covered recoil pad. Neatly housed in its lightweight leather case with green alcantara lining and accessories it is a complete package built to the highest quality and a worthy addition to any sportsman’s battery.

Another “glorious rifle” completed, the client in collaboration with Westley Richards don’t seem to have missed out on any part of the rifle, every aspect has been delved into and only the best has surfaced!
The fabulous timber, the blacking, case colour and blue of the extractor and trigger have merged into the “glorious rifle” the client will be so proud to own and use!
When building such a rifle having iron sights in combination with telescopic sights is the comb of the stock raised to allow the user to get greater steadying with cheek against comb when taking that precision shot?

I was the lucky owner of such a rifle (second hand) when living in Rhodesia in the 1970s and it never let me down. My friends all commented on the one-shot kills. Kynoch flat nose solids and RWS soft points in 300gr were my preferred ammunition.

Another Westley beauty that still maintains the looks of a rifle that is built to be hunted. My jealousy knows no boundaries with the guns and rifles you and Trigger consistently post on The Explora. Looking forward to seeing you with L.D. at DSC in January!
