The Westley Richards Gold Name Anson & Deeley Double Rifle.

 

A Westley Richards Gold Name Anson & Deeley .500 NE DoubleA Westley Richards Gold Name Anson & Deeley .500 NE Double Westley Richards .500 'Fixed Lock' Anson & Deeley Double Rifle.

Some years ago we re-introduced one of the double rifles which no doubt played a big part in making our name as a maker of double rifles. It is the Gold Name Anson & Deeley boxlock double rifle, complete with model C bolting and Westley ejector work and sights. It is a rifle we have made during our history in the 100's and which, in it's basic format provides everything a big game hunter requires. Build quality, reliability, accuracy, balance and pride of ownership. Built by the same team and with the same passion as our droplock and sidelock rifles it is the 'entry point' into the world of Westley Richards double rifles.

I introduced this rifle with the aim of making it possible for professional and other hunters to buy a rifle which would last their careers, and either give them a return at the end of their time in the bush or be something they could pass down to their son if he followed in their footsteps. It is a rifle built for generations not for a period of years.

The rifle has not sold in huge numbers but has fulfilled everything I wanted it to do. It is in the hands of both great professional hunters and great enthusiastic hunters, is carried with confidence and has steadily increased in value.

The Westley Richards fixed lock model is available in .470, .500 and .577.

    A fine looking rifle, it looks like the perfect choice for the man hunting dangerous game who does not want to worry about damaging the woodwork or engraving, but who knows he (or she) may need to stop something very big and angry very quickly!

    A true hunters rifle, thanks for the pictures.

    Good Afternoon!!!

    Sometimes it is the woman that wears no makeup that is the most beautiful. This is a real case of the beauty is in the eye of the beholder. It certainly is something I look at with an appreciation for being understated....I would love to have it in my arms while out on a date with a _____ ???

    In Christ
    Vance,

    Lovely, just lovely. A wonderful offering from Westley Richards. In hand, I imagine this rifle would make anyone feel like a turn of the century ivory hunter. Mr Clode, you are wise!

    A question:

    Is the fixed lock rifle available with your patent one trigger?

      I don't think we have actually done a single selective trigger on this model, it would add a substantial chunk of money, but I am sure we could, assuming the chunk was forthcoming!

      If this model rifle is loaded up with too many extras, best wood, full engraving and anything which are non functional options it does become close in price to the droplock model and then a decision must be made which way to go!
