The Westley Richards best action includes an exceptionally strong model 'C' dolls head extension to ensure excellent locking between barrels and action. This action comes with disc strikers fitted as standard. Replacement of these is a simple task with the use of a hand tool. Customers are encouraged to purchase additional strikers, so in the slim chance of breakage, the rifle does not have to be returned to the factory for an otherwise straightforward repair. Although considered the most durable action in the world, the hand detachable lock can still fail. A spare set of locks, presented in a carry case, enables any damaged locks to be swapped, even while in the field. There is a choice between traditional double triggers, with front articulating, or the Westley Richards patent single trigger. Known throughout the world for it's reliability, this trigger has been imitated, though never duplicated. On the underside of the action, the user can select whether to fire the left or right barrel first by manipulating a sliding lever. Automatic ejectors are standard on this model, however standard extractors can be specified if preferred. This action comes with a manual safe or automatic safe fitted as standard. A manual safe is the usual choice on a double rifle and requires user intervention to place the safe on, whereas the automatic safe clicks on when the rifle is opened. A stalking safety can be incorporated into either of these, this is an additional bolt that insures unquestionable safety while stalking with a loaded rifle. A strap over comb top tang extension can be added to the rifle. Although generally known for it's aesthetic appeal, the additional strength of metal mated to the stock ensures faultless strength in the wrist. The strap over comb can also be engraved to match the action. False sideplates can be added to the rifle - imitating the look of a sidelock and allowing scope for more elaborate engraving patterns. The addition of clipped fences adds visual appeal and some additional horizontal strength to the action. The calibre a gun is built in entirely reflects the user's intentions and the gun's purpose. Westley Richards offers a wide range of calibres, and if need be, custom borings are available. Whether your intentions are to hunt roebuck in the rolling greens of Austria or stalk elephant in the African bush, Westley Richards can offer advice on the most suitable calibre for your shooting needs. Westley Richards use only the finest chopper lump barrels to insure faultless accuracy and quality. Most barrels range in length from 22 to 28 inches, depending upon the calibre and shooting needs. Westley Richards can offer advice on selecting the most suitable barrel length. Generally, a quarter rib is the proper provision for holding sights. The most common leaf combinations 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. 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 its iridescent nature, can be seen in even the most dim circumstances. A replacement bead assembly containing both the standard and moon bead is available. Hand detachable rifles are stocked with select grade walnut, however, exhibition grade is 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. All stock is finished with a pistol grip and Westley Richards can cater to left-handed shooters by incorporating a left hand cheekpiece. A standard metal grip cap or a trap door grip cap, to hold a spare foresight bead, can be chosen. Any finish or engraving pattern that is found on the action can be duplicated here. Generally known as the proper butt on an English double rifle, the Silver's pad is a standard compliment to any calibre 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. A gold oval plate is fitted to the underside of the stock to carry the owners initials. Decoration such as a crest can also be catered for. The traditional splinter forend is standard on this rifle. A modern, fuller, beavertail style which wraps around the barrels and offers more hand protection, can be chosen if preferred. Traditional scroll engraving comes as standard on this rifle, however, gold name, game scene and exhibition engraving are also available. Due to the bespoke nature of game scene and exhibition engraving we are not able to estimate a cost for these until your requirements have been discussed with a member of our team.
