BILL JONES. THE HEMINGWAY & SUTHERLAND .577's.

We were pleased to once again welcome Bill Jones of Alabama to the factory recently. He was on his way to or from the African hunting grounds he frequents, I forget which way he was going this time. Bill is, amongst other things, the proud owner of Ernest Hemingway's Westley Richards 577 which he acquired at auction for the record price of $340,000.00

Although visiting on the pretence to see progress of his new 500 double rifle, I believe the ulterior motive was to relieve us of  James Sutherland's 577 which resides safely in our vault! Rather than let Bill take it away we gave him the opportunity to try it for fit and hold it for awhile to consider where it had been before we locked it away safely out of his reach!
