John Shirley supplied to me the following four images of his intriguing under lever, rising bite double rifle .500 3" Nitro Express.

Comments on the email.


Please find attached pictures of our new snap action .500 nitro double rifle. Our rifle is based on an original Jeffrey 450-400 3" but fitted with a rising bite in place of the dolls head. Weight of the .500 is 11lbs 4oz with 24" barrels. Front sight is a WR pattern with folding hood.

Rifles are available with rising bite fastener in .600 .577 .500 .470
