description


Stunning Westley Richards 20g hand detachable lock, single trigger shotgun. Originally built in 1912 the gun was returned to us in 1992 for a complete rebuild. We fitted new 27” barrels with 2 3/4” chambers, choked 1/4 & 3/4. A new, beautifully figured, straight hand stock and splinter forend measuring 15 1/8” to the centre of the chequered butt, with a drop of 1 1/2? at the comb and 2 1/2” at the heel, cast off 9/16” at the heel, 3/4” at the toe and 1/2” at the face which is slightly swept.

The scroll back action features our patent hand detachable locks with a single selective trigger, snap lever work, model C dolls head and beetle back automatic safety. The action was re-colour hardened and the cover plate and trigger guard re-engraved with a game scene and dog on the trigger guard bow by Dave Hudson. The rest of the action has the traditional house scroll and WR name in gold banner. The gun weighs 5lbs 11.3oz and comes in a lightweight leather case with accessories. Although not original, the gun is a beautiful example of a 20g droplock, the exhibition grade wood and upgraded engraving make for a very attractive gun. Not only that but it is, effectively, a modern gun with as new barrels capable of shooting modern 2 3/4” loads. It points and handles extremely well.
