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!
The sling swivel attachment in close up.
Thank you to all who have ordered the new sling, this will go into production next week and be despatched accordingly. We will price and confirm orders once we have details. Thank you for your patience. Please contact us if you would like to add your order to firstname.lastname@example.org

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!!!
