Westley Richards .270 Stalker Magazine Rifle

Serial Number 43422



Westley Richards & Co. Bolt Action Magazine Rifle chambered in the venerable .270 Winchester.

In the 1980’s W.R.&Co. made a droplock double rifle, a fixed lock and sidelock shotgun whose actions were provided by A.A. Brown and a bolt action magazine rifle. While the latter were always based on Mauser actions just as they had been for the last 70 years, for a variety of reasons, and these rifles were primarily ordered cartridges that had their origins here in the U.S. and, as a result, were more accessible at the time. 

The example listed here is quite nice and complete in its case with its original accessories. 

Based on a standard-length Mauser action with a modern bolt shroud and M70 type 3-position safety, a hinged straddle floor plate and an inside-the-bow release, spotted (e.g. jeweled) bolt body and a 3- panel checkered bolt knob. Timney trigger, and claw scope mounts. The word “SAFE” is inlaid in gold on the bolt’s shroud over a gold inlaid arrow pointing rearward.

The 24” barrel is fitted with a quarter rib and island front sight with combination foresight and Westley’s registered sight protector. Quarter rib has 1 standing/3 folding rear sight (50, 100, 150 yds) and a Barrel banded forward sling swivel. The foresight, quarter rib, scope rings, action, bottom metal, and grip cap have near full coverage scroll engraving done in a traditional house pattern. 

Rifle is also fitted with 1” claw mount rings, the rear mount on the action’s rear bridge and the forward mount on the barrel’s Nock’s form. The rings are also engraved with the Maker’s name and the rifle’s serial number and hold a period Swarovski Optic fixed 4x “Nova” telscopic sight. 

The nicely figured walnut stock has a straight comb and a right-hand modern style cheekpiece with a shadow line. 14 11/16” LOP over a leather covered recoil pad and a stud sling swivel along the toe line between the stock oval and stock’s toe. There is a single recoil bar color hardened and engraved and an ebony forend tip with a traditional point checkering pattern on the forend and grip. The steel grip cap has a hinged trap-door and is color hardened. The stock oval has a stylized monogram A.T.A.  

The rifle is complete in its original Maker’s lightweight canvas case with accoutrements including its original rifle sling. 

The rifle weighs 10 lbs. 11.4 oz. Scoped and remains in near new condition, the scope is clear and holds its zero, and the case is equally well preserved. 

Proofed in Birmingham and regulated for 150gr bullets. 

An excellent example of a 1980’s English made rifle, by one of England’s most celebrated makers, and in one of America’s most beloved hunting cartridges.
