A WESTLEY RICHARDS .303 FARQHARSON TAKE DOWN RIFLE

Over the past years we have been asked on many an occasion if we would build a new single shot falling block rifle but have refrained and directed the customers to Hartmann & Weiss who make this model frequently. I have this .303 model which is in very good general shape and just needs a bit of care and attention to the finishes. Alternatively this is a great starting point for someone looking to have a Farqharson in a more modern calibre and in the more rare take down format. The rifle is priced at £4000 ($6250) and lies in UK currently.

For detailed information about the Farqharson rifles made by Westley Richards look for a copy of Wal Winfers British Single Shot Rifles, Volume 4, Westley Richards.

    Its a pity that Westley Richards does not make these farquharson/falling block rifles anymore. After all they probabily the most elegant rifles ever built. Why leave it to the germans, austrians, and americans to build a british design ?

      We are actually currently building one of these rifles currently in 450/400 and will soon show the Germans, Austrians and Americans how it is actually done correctly! They are indeed a very elegant rifle and one which unfortunately is more costly to build than many expect.
