The Scroll Back Action Double

A .470 Westley Richards Droplock with Scroll Back Action in Lightweight Case. 

This is a recently completed .470 Droplock for which we have used the scroll back action, typically found on our shotguns and which I have only ever seen on one vintage pre-war rifle. That rifle was a .476 and one that I have tried on many unsuccessful occasions to buy back from the lucky owner.

The scroll back works really well in my opinion and allows a more rounded shape to the action and ultimately very pleasing lines to the rifle. This is a feature we can now feature on any of our double rifles and possibly you will have seen this on a .600 which I posted 'in the white' some days ago.

    Morning Guys and Gals:
    I would like to take a moment to express my pleasure dealing with Westley Richards. The above Double Rifle happens to be mine, and looking at it on this web site has been a thrill for me everyday...can't wait for its arrival. Simon could not be more helpful and friendly attending to my needs. The experience has been just as rewarding as the actual gun itself. In fact I am nearly finished putting together a bespoke 28 gauge drop lock Westley, that will be my first bespoke shotgun...what fun I am having. I just want to take a moment to express my experience and say many Thanks to the Team at Westley Richards. Job Well Done!!!!!
