A New Pair Of Westley Richards .600 Deluxe Droplock Double Rifles

Westley Richards .600 Pair 1

In the shooting and hunting world the necessity for a ‘pair’ of guns is really only ever associated with the driven game shooting scene as practised primarily in the UK and Europe.  It is therefore of great fun and interest to actually build a pair of double rifles and if you are going to do it then you may as well go big!

In this case we are proud to present our very first pair of .600 droplock double rifles!  You really don’t get much bigger.  When we first embarked on this project a few years ago, my client a young and enthusiastic hunter of big and dangerous game came to me with the request for a new .600 droplock double rifle. Nothing out of the ordinary really until I suggested ‘why don’t we do a pair?’

I am sure many of you, just like my client did at the time are asking ‘why do a pair?’ the reason was really quite simple, because we could!  The client thought it a great idea and this is not somebody who wants them just to look at.  We have hunted before with single .505’s, .577’s and .600’s, this new pair of rifles are going to get used and that was really in many ways the stimulus for the project in the first place.

Now to the rifles themselves.  A matched pair of deluxe .600 droplock double rifles with 24″ barrels, extra hand detachable locks, deluxe scroll engraving with full case colour hardening, complete in a buffalo skin oak & leather case with full complement of horn handled tools.  Matching grained leather slips made to measure for transporting the rifles in the hunting truck.  Overall a lovely package and unquestionably a very unique one!

  1. Dear Trigger.

    As always pure magic, and with a nice little twist -the safety engraving, something I’ve just heard about one time before.
    Nice really nice!!

    Best regards
    Peter

  2. Well! That just about beats all, A pair of .600s, and in very tasteful colour case hardened rather than the cheap bling silver finish, well done for suggesting this project.

  3. Exquisite work as always Trigger, Westley’s are pick of the gunmakers in my view. I have an inert .600NE round on the desk in my study, I bet it is impressive to shoot! Thanks for the photos.

  4. Best of luck to the new owner.They look magnificent and shoot them as much as you can.I have always said there is only one thing better than a beautiful WR gun/rifle,thats two beautiful WR guns!

  5. Lovely rifles….what do they weigh..?

    Are they regulated for the .900-110-7600 load…?

    I cant imagine any better life insurance for elephant hunting..!
