A Pair of Westley Richards 16g hand Detachable Lock game guns. Engraved by Lepinois.

Westley Richards, 16g, Droplock, Lepinois,

Quite some time ago now I posted some photographs of these 16g guns when they arrived back from the engraver Frederique Lepinois. For some reason they missed being photographed in their completed state. It was only this week whilst we were putting the second edition of our book to bed which included the unfinished versions to illustrate the work that they were rushed up to be photographed.

These guns speak for themselves, a superb, useful and underrated gauge gun, combined with truly unique engraving by a wonderful new talent!

  1. Good day Simon,

    I recall these two guns very well Sir. I even wrote a comment to the wonderful young lady when these guns were posted. If my fleeting memory serves me she felt that she might not yet be a master engraver? Well these two guns certainly lifted her to that level in my opinion. they have a uniqueness, I have not seen by me on a Westley. My question is does she still do work for you…on occasion? I try to look at all the work you so graciously show on your Explora site, but I have not noticed her name? Also of what origin is this young lady? I am always interested in just what country’s these engravers call there Port of call. Thank you in advance for the effort Sir…

    In Christ
    Vance,
