A beautifully engraved Birmingham gun. The Westley Richards drop-lock is one of the most sought-after actions by collectors and upland hunters alike. This gun is in great condition, and has 2 3/4" chambers proofed for 1 1/4 oz. Black Powder and Nitro loads.

This gun also comes with some interesting history and provennance. According to the Westley Richards leger, the gun was ordered for a member of the royal family. Which Member is anyone's guess, as the folks up in Birmingham are notoriously closed mouthed, and have consequently not revealed that tidbit of information.
