Westley Richards .416
      #346927 - 18/11/20 12:15 PM

Time for this gun to head home. The original stock split, so I restocked it to factory original specifications. The rifle is a Westley Richards .416 Rigby which was made in 2008.

Very nice work Aaron. Thanks for posting.

I would not be impressed if a WR from 2008 stock split!!!

Very nice rifle.

I also like "Suhler Einhakmontage" to mount scopes.

I would most certainly agree there!
I know you can't see inside a piece of wood, especially a very figured one & hence lies the problem, more chances to break along one of those figured lines!!

Superb workmanship there Aaron, certainly WR standard for sure!

Split may have been a poor word to use. It broke in shipping and was repairable but peace of mind for the owner was more important.

Holy crap, that stock is a truly beautiful example of craftsmanship. Whilst the stock is perfect, I never understand the attraction of that level of action engraving however

Speaking of which, what type of walnut is that, and who supplied that exceptional blank?
