12ga. Westley Richards Drop-lock
Just received a beautiful 12ga. Drop-lock by Westley Richards on consignment. Haven’t established a price yet, but I wanted to post it ASAP. It is an exceptional gun, and we are proud to offer an english shotgun of this quality. Several more detailed pics below, starting with the engraving on the barrels and action, and then the forend and the barrel selector.

It sports what is known as a “doll’s head” third-fastener

The gun was made in Birmingham, England as #2 of a pair around 1910 for an outlet in New York. It has 2 1/2″ Chambers proofed for 1 1/8oz. loads. It has 30″ barrels and weighs 6lbs. 8oz.

The forend is especially impressive, as it is inlaid with ebony
