Oliver Greener, W. W. Greener’s Great, Great, Great Grandson Joins the Westley Richards Team at TEAGUE.

Oliver Greener at the Bench at TeagueGunmaking is clearly in the blood of Oliver Greener who after only a few weeks into his apprenticeship stands confidently in front of our new £150,000 CNC turning center on which he produces our range of Teague Precision Multichokes.

We are very pleased to welcome Oliver Greener to our company. Oliver has started an apprenticeship at Teague Precision Chokes where he will satisfy his engineering interest in the gun making world.

Oliver is the 7th generation of Greener’s to be involved with gun making, William Greener (1806-1896) being the founder of the company and 1st generation.

Although W W Greener did not invent choke boring he most certainly did perfect the method as the results of ‘The Field Trials’ testify. I am sure some of this knowledge has been passed down in the genes and will prove useful in future developments at Teague!

We wish Oliver every success with his apprenticeship with us.

‘Choke Bore Guns’ was W W Greener’s second published book in 1876. The book contains a detailed description of the gun trials of 1875, in addition to the earlier gun trials of 1866 which took place in `london and the trials of 1874 which took place in New York.

  1. Welcome Oliver!!!! Like a great racehorse you sure have the bloodlines for great things at Westley Richards. All the luck in the world young man!!!

    In Christ
    Vance,

  2. Great to see young blood getting into engineering rather than I.T. or some other desk job. Good luck young man, it is a fantastic trade which I love being part of every day and hopefully you will too.

    Matt Schmidt.
