Westley Richards 'Modele de Luxe' 28g Droplock Shotgun

Just completed and in time for Christmas delivery is this exquisite little 28g droplock shotgun. Built as a modern version of our 'Modele de Luxe' grade gun, it features a specially commissioned elaborate scroll design incorporating beautiful shell motifs on the fences and top lever.

The gun is a special project commissioned by a father for his son and it is always a pleasure for the team here at the factory to bring such a project to fruition, especially for the gift of a life time. As a 'Modele de Luxe' gun it features Westley Richards model 'C' dolls head fastener, single selective trigger, drop locks, scroll back, exhibition wood, heel/toe plates with a slim horn centre, and a hand painted enamel oval with family crest. Teague multi chokes were fitted from the guns inception to give it real versatility in the field, for a lifetime of use.

Exquisite elaborate scroll design with carved shell features.

Teague multi chokes contained in a hand made pocket case.

The whole package could only be complete with a super bespoke made case, covered in black antique finish alligator skin. The interior has been tastefully lined in blue alcantara, with inset case label and an assortment of functional tooling. The extra drop locks have been French fitted into one of the compartment lids under which sits a hand made choke box.

Merry Christmas from us all here to one very lucky new owner!

    Dear Trigger,
    I can not thank you enough for building such an exquisite shotgun for my Son! He will see the fully completed and cased shotgun on Christmas Day. All aspects of the shotgun and case are truly magnificent. Simon would be very proud of your accomplishment in completing such a timeless example of the gunmaker's art. Our collective desire to educate the next generation about fine firearms was achieved with this gun. You and Simon allowing my Son to participate in all aspects of this shotgun's build, along with a very welcoming visit and tour of Westley Richards in Birmingham, will not be forgotten. The completed shotgun, with attention to each and every detail, is a testament to the entire Westley Richards company and its employees. Westley Richards builds the finest guns in the world each and every day. The best days of Westley Richards are definitely in front of it! Best regards and Merry Christmas! Charlie
