Beautiful piece of work to say the least - an extremely talented (& patient)man
Silly question, but can photos of this rifle be kept?

John is a very talented man. He built a full compliment of loading tools for my Holland Paradox and the quality was top shelf, not to mention being a very pleasant man to deal with.

Special- regulated for 14 drams according to the cases.

That's 382gr.

12 drams, at 327gr. broke WW Greener's (The Gun and it's

Development 9th Edition) recoil machine as it topped out

at 200pounds.

Frank, I'm asking for posterity sake so all here at NE can appreciate this work.
I'm not sure if a "Moderator" can post photos I definitely can't! Maybe Daryl can do so as he has posted photos before.
Photobucket is now closing down a lot of old photos of rifles/guns that were kept as reference, now sadly a lot of these are disappearing!
Would be a true loss to not be able to see this work!

I can go and borrow the photos and the article from the Explora website. To make sure they are archived on our server. In the past Simon Clode and Westley Richards have never complained. As I always try to give full recognition of the link and origin of any photos and articles. A bit of free advertising. If they don't like it, they can say of course. We have a number of British and other gunmakers or their staff visiting on NE either regularly or from time to time.

That is quite spectacular, isn't it.

Sry- I no longer have a photo posting site.

Some of the guys on the air gun forum I frequent use this site.
