.400 reason for not being fan of o/u big caliber rifle is primarily having nil exposure to them. Having always wanted a boss o/u rifle a small caliber will enable the pleasure of using it every day if I wish. Thankyou for your interest &a thoughts.

It is indeed a Browning action with a modified top tang.

Hi Colin,

Thanks for the photos. Sorry it took more than a while to get them up. I've got some time again this month, so send me any more you have since this last lot you sent to me. Thanks again.

Wow. Fabulous rifles and guns. I am in awe of the talented people that, with their individual specializations, come together to create such functional masterpieces.

The clamshell foresight hood on No. 31600 is amazing.

Thanks you, Chris

Von gruff no one more interested than I on progress of boss and purdey batteries. Boss battery of "6" 3 now complete. Boss 20b o/u 28b s/s & 300h&h bolt take-down rifle completed. These 3 guns were ordered in years 2007 & 2008. Were finished within 3 years of order date. 410 o/u ordered 4/09 they hope will be complete 4/16. 375 - 303 double rifle & 5.6 x 50r o/u rifle may form part of my estate to finalise. Purdey battery of "9" well underway. Many pictures on purdey club website. I am incapable of sending pictures for some reason. Others will help me. Part of the purdey battery included a landrover as official carriage it arrived in Australia this month. Thankyou for your interest.




Hi C,

I will go and copy and load them up here.

Back to the excellent singles, double rifles and shotguns soon, but every battery needs a pair of revolvers.

Anderson Wheeler Mk VII's



Plans for engraving.

Engraving plan images removed on the request of the engraver. New plans are being formulated with a different style. These will be displayed when done in due course.

I think we're all just gobsmacked at the scope of this whole project!
One rifle is a feat to do - but 9 individual pieces! Ahmed577 you are a legend!
How these 'pieces' have come together is now stunningly obvious, you have tastes that we mortals can only dream about. The timber alone is just fantastic & the metal/engraving work is WOW, just how I imagine a real double(s) would look like. Never handled one in the flesh.
No wonder you get a Rover to cart them about, but then begs the question...which one to use first??
Artistry in wood & metal, absolutely beautiful pieces each & every one, lets hope that you get to use them sooner rather than later - even if it takes time to get perfection.
Please keep sending the photos.

Wow. Just wow!

Love the pair of revolvers. I really like the detailed plan of the engraving layout. Takes a lot of time but is worth it.

Aren't the revolvers 45LC?

Cheers, Chris
