Yes, it a Westley Richards with the drop magazine etc. The serial number starts “LT” which I believe indicates it was made when Leslie Taylor was at the helm... It’s certainly pre-war. Westley Richards is a very innovative company. My sense is that the rifle would not feed well without the magazine fingers that sling an otherwise staggered stack of cartridges. It feeds flawlessly, upside down...
Hardly anyone will to exert oneself nowadays , if a 404 Jeffery cartridge is relatively easier to built in an regular M98 system.
Does not mean that's not a good cartridge for hunting DG. It is one of the 3 classics that have proven themselves , i mean the 416 Rigby , the 404 Jeffery and our 425WR. Unfortunately , the latter offers a few problems that are disadvantageous to it.
I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.
