About Product

Westley Richards bolt action rifles are built on the original Mauser '98 design, often using original actions or suitable modern derivatives. These are available in three sizes to accommodate every calibre. Depending on calibre, either a standard, magnum, or kurtz (short) action is used. If required, Westley Richards can construct a rifle on nearly any action.Bolt action rifles are stocked with standard grade walnut, however, select and exhibition grades are also available. Grading is based upon density, dryness, age, and the quality of grain, as well as many other characteristics that make the wood unique such as the figuring. Exhibition grade stock tends to be made from immensely figured or rare wood. Please note that if requested a rifle can be stocked using the customers own blanks. Sling swivels are on option on the bolt action rifle to allow for easy attachment of slings. An optional gold oval plate can be fitted to the underside of the stock to carry the owners initials. Decoration such as a crest can also be catered for. A steel grip cap, steel trap door grip cap, to hold a spare foresight bead, or horn grip cap can be chosen. The finish on the steel models can be matched to the finish on the action, however, the horn is generally a very dark brown or black colour. An English Silver's pad is fitted as standard on the bolt action rifle. However, a softer rubber pad can be chosen to reduce the impact from recoil. Westley Richards also offers a leather covered option for both versions in a choice of colours. Westley Richards can build a rifle using either an island rear sight block or a quarter rib. The most common leaf combinations for the sights are: one standing, one standing plus one folding, and one standing plus two folding. These leaves can be sighted for any range. Other leaf combinations can be catered for upon request. Options for the foresight include a standard ramp or the Westley Richards patent Foresight - considered by many to be the best option. The Westley Richards patent Foresight is entirely hand made, and includes a hinged cover with checkered sides for ease of handling. Once the cover is back, the user can select the standard bead, or flip-up moon bead - which, because of it's iridescent nature, can be seen in even the most dim circumstances. A replacement bead assembly containing both the standard and moon bead is available. Westley Richards use only the highest specification precision ground steel barrels in a range of lengths from 22 to 28 inches, depending on calibre and shooting needs. Westley Richards can offer advice on selecting the most suitable barrel length.
