Just in time to start some serious quail hunting is this sweet little 28 bore droplock shotgun. Unusual for our droplock shotgun format is the wooden panel with drop point behind the scroll back which is normally reserved for our droplock double rifles. It certainly adds a unique touch to the shotgun and as with all things Westley Richards, beauty is in the eye of the beholder!
From an engraving perspective a bold acanthus leaf layout with carved vine leaf and grape fences has been designed to fit around the dainty frame of the gun. Once again it highlights the diversity in Westley Richards engraving portfolio and proves that when carefully designed and executed the uninterrupted surface of the droplock can accommodate all manner of engraving.
Weighing a sublime 5lb 4ozs and fitted with Teague multi chokes, the gun should prove deadly in the quail cover of Texas.
