A traditional Westley Richards droplock in 28 bore was completed this week and due to head out to the USA. Whilst a greater portion of the guns and rifles being built at the factory today are of a more fancy engraving composition, it is always nice to see the care that goes into a traditional 'house' engraved gun.
These guns will always stand the test of time as they are the bench mark gun for the company. Quail hunters in the US simply love the small bore guns that the guys here build and the actual 'droplocks' always make them a talking point on a hunt.
It goes without saying that we enjoy using the very finest of figured walnut and having just returned from a recent buying trip there are going to be some truly epic guns and rifles coming out of the factory in the next couple of years!
Gold naming whilst subtle adds an elegant touch to the gun.
Super deluxe wood is the standard now with Westley Richards.

What a glorious traditional typical ‘Westley’ side by side built for a specific hunting pleasure! Fortunate indeed is the client who ordered such a handsome gun.
I adore beautiful timber on any finely made firearm, it’s such a compliment to the best of workmanship as displayed by your team at Westley Richards.

I was idly wondering what chokes your client specified for his beautiful 28 bore? Were they the Teague chokes, or does a gun balance better with fixed chokes? I assume he asked for 2.75" chambers.

Many thanks for your question. This gun has fixed chokes at 1/4 in the right barrel and 1/2 in the left.
