I am quite sure that many a sporting rifle collector can put 2 of the 3 classic W. J. Jeffery safari rifles on a table but not many out there can make up the whole set to include the mighty .500J! Jeffery only made a handful of these rifles pre war, I believe in the region of 23!

This complete set above are all built on Magnum Mauser actions and are the No. 1 Model as detailed below.

These rifles, along with some other new items will be going on our used gun website within the next few days.

  1. I am assuming (l-r) a .333J with the G&H sidemount and the Lyman receiver sight, a ,404J with qtr. rib, and .500 J. These rifles as intended for use with sights and without scopes and stocked without cheek rest are quite elegant and ‘racy’. A fabulous, classy, and useful set of rifles. Wonderful example of classic Safari rifles.
    Thank you for sharing!

  2. Classic rifles, built for a purpose and all the better for it. Thanks for posting the photo and brochure pages Simon, this blog is a mine of unique information for the sporting rifle enthusiast.

    • The take down is a threaded system with a screw in locking peg. I am not an expert on Griffin mounts but to my eye it is steel and on the scope part there is a small adjustment knob.

  3. Hi. I own a .333 Jeffrey’s. But unfortunately the bolt is not with the gun. Anyone with ideas of where of how I could get on as I would love for it to be in one piece.
