The Classic W. J. Jeffery & Co. Safari Rifles.

From left, the .333, .404 & .500 Jeffery sporting rifles.

I am quite sure that many a sporting rifle collector can put 2 of the 3 classic W. J. Jeffery safari rifles on a table but not many out there can make up the whole set to include the mighty .500J! Jeffery only made a handful of these rifles pre war, I believe in the region of 23!

This complete set above are all built on Magnum Mauser actions and are the No. 1 Model as detailed below.

These rifles, along with some other new items will be going on our used gun website within the next few days.

    I am assuming (l-r) a .333J with the G&H sidemount and the Lyman receiver sight, a ,404J with qtr. rib, and .500 J. These rifles as intended for use with sights and without scopes and stocked without cheek rest are quite elegant and 'racy'. A fabulous, classy, and useful set of rifles. Wonderful example of classic Safari rifles.
    Thank you for sharing!

      Yes correct I have actually put the info on the photo now once I read the published version, I forgot!

    Nice find. Hopefully they'll stay together as a set.

    Classic rifles, built for a purpose and all the better for it. Thanks for posting the photo and brochure pages Simon, this blog is a mine of unique information for the sporting rifle enthusiast.

    the .333 seems to be a take down rifle. is it?

    • Simon Clode on November 5, 2015 at 3:35 am

      Correct the .333 is a take down and has the scope also that is lying on the small suitcase.

      Good eye, I didn't look that close!

  • Patrick McCabe on November 6, 2015 at 1:54 pm

    Great looking set! What system is the takedown? I s the top of the mount steel or aluminum? Thanks!

    • Simon Clode on November 6, 2015 at 2:38 pm

      The take down is a threaded system with a screw in locking peg. I am not an expert on Griffin mounts but to my eye it is steel and on the scope part there is a small adjustment knob.

    Hi. I own a .333 Jeffrey's. But unfortunately the bolt is not with the gun. Anyone with ideas of where of how I could get on as I would love for it to be in one piece.

  • RJ Thomas on July 26, 2022 at 3:25 pm

    Sirs: I own a cased W J Jeffery Double Rifle. The address on the barrels is 13 King Street St
    James St London . I would like to purchase an original or reproduction label on parchment or leather with that address. If you cannot provide a label, perhaps you can direct me to someone who does have such a label.
    Much Obliged, RJ Thomas
