This is a very traditional format rifle with the addition of the scroll back, this I think has been a very nice recent 'old' addition to our offering, we did make rifles filed with scroll back like this in the past but it was dropped for many years. I have only seen very few pre war rifles with the scroll back and took the shape and file up we use from one such rifle, a .476 which features in our history book "In Pursuit of the best Gun".
This rifle is supplied with a pair of cased extra interchangeable locks and is all cased in lightweight leather travel case made in our leather department with accessories.
The .475 No 2 Eley has a 480 grain bullet travelling at 2200 FPS.

Fantastic rifle in an equal fantastic caliber, that rifle and a culling belt full of those long cartridges would make you feel unbeatable.
As always fantastic work .

Good day Simon,
Great gun Sir, I really like the scroll back action on this gun. While it may appear to be a small item, it lends itself to a completely different shape at the rear of the action. For lack of a better term it gives the gal sexier lines. I also think that a spare set of locks, is like the perfect clutch for a dress, it just belongs there. I am guessing that you don't get that type of opinion on one of your guns very often....HAHA

As always, splendid craftsmanship. WR are making the finest guns and rifles available, no doubt about that. The calibre is not one that I've heard of though.

Stunning rifle. I'm sure the owner will be quite pleased! How is the Eley loading different from the Jeffrey?
Keith on April 3, 2016 at 10:41 am
The Eley uses a 480 gr .483 bullet and the Jeffrey uses a 500 gr .488 bullet. Case is the same but the rounds are not enterchangable.

Magnificent, as I have come to admire; but just how many rounds can the locks be expected to endure before failure?

Superb rifle made exquisite by the edition of the scroll back. That small detail makes all the difference and it is what sets your guns apart from other English guns. Most of the older German guns in both SxS and O&U were finished with a scroll back and they look much better because of it. Reto Buehler in the USA built a Custom Ruger No.1 finished with a scroll back and it looks superb.
