Well they just keep coming! Another .500 3" hand detachable lock double rifle has just been completed from engraving this week and it once again shows a subtle variation on the classic Westley Richards 'house' scroll. Yet another style of carved fence which combines a banner with acanthus leaves, nice indeed.
It seems that we are one of the few double rifle manufacturers actually getting anything out there these days. The beauty of this rifle is that it is going to a young enthusiastic hunter who will use it considerably, once again proving that we build genuine user rifles as well as the fabulous presentation pieces you see on this blog.

Awesome craftsmanship of the very highest order. I'm sure the owner will treasure this and that it will be used as intended. Thanks for sharing.

WR steadily cranks out these beautiful bespoke firearms in the face of a world of mass production and sameness. So very glad to see each and every one of these spectacular works of art such as this beautiful piece.

Really quite stunning work and the carved fences add a nice touch. I'm excited to hear about this one going into the field and perhaps the owner will share a story with us!

Good Day Trigger,
I thought it interesting as to approx how many double rifles Westley Richards turned out to happy customers in the last year. From my count it is approx 8-12 guns? I may not be exact, but I would like to know how many the other three London gun makers have out in the last year??? That is not counting any of the shotguns or bolt action rifles that left your factory. As your readers know large bore Double rifles seperate the men from the boys in builders!!
So keep up the great work, knowing the reason that so many Best guns are going through the door is because Westley Richards makes the Best English Gun, that's not taking price into account...BEST GUN PERIOD!!! Be well and i look forward to continue seeig your new post.
