Good useful calibres and beautifully stocked but unfortunately, way to ornate for me. With about 10% of the engraving I would like the rifles. However beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and some will definitely like the engraving. Must add the engraving looks to be top class. I dare say they handle and shoot well.

WR rifles are undoubtably well made but the displayed rifles are almost always way over the top ornate and pretty for me. Some to the extent of a drag queen over puttying themselves with garish make up. Sorry WR!

I'd like to see a client order a WR pair of rifles in these two cartridges to actually shoot them, hunt with them, take them on safari to Africa, kill a buffalo, a lion, an elephant, or a kudu, with them, Shoot a Scottish red stag. Or an Alabama whitetail. Maybe a Kodiak Brown bear.

10% of tasteful engraving would be SO MUCH NICER. Those two rifles to me are actually ugly. I'd walk past them with only a glance. And look at something classic, blued steel and good but not ornate walnut.

OK WR hates me now ...

Yes I understand it's been made to the clients order.

Not my “cup of tea”, but I am sure whoever commissioned this pair will love them. I would love to own them sans the engraving.

These are pretty dang busy. How could you hunt with one and pay attention to the surrounding forest?

I could make other observations, but that would be snide.

I was snide yesterday, and now I have run out of my snideness.

My drag queen reference was harsh.

I do like good ol big bosomed pretty lasses though with clear clean features though.

A nice WR Mauser with classy minimalist engraving would be a beauty to me. And a rifle usable in the field.

These are museum art pieces.
