Westley Richards .22 Hornet Single Shot Hammerless Ejector Rook Rifle. Built with a WR snap action top lever, scroll back acton of the A&D type.
Heavily modified and set up for a scope with a roll over cheekpiece and a varnished finish and a repaired crack in the wrist.
The aciton has been polished and has a traditional pattern English scroll with the maker's name in flowing banners. The action's cover plate, trigger bow and barrel are also re-blacked.
Originlly chambered for .297/.250 the 27" octagon barrel is sleeved to .22 Hornet and has pre 1974 Birmingham proof marks. The barrel has a full length machine matted rib with a dovetailed front sight and a single "V" notch Express rear sight. The barrel, however, is also set up for a scope with Weaver bases attached to the top of the barrel. The rifle comes in a brown canvas, take down case with green baize interior and a Westley Richards trade lable. The rifle is also furnished with two scopes. Probably the scope the rifle was found with, a vintage "Hawkeye" 4x with Parker Hale rings and a Leupold Vari-X 2-7 with Weaver rings that work with the current bases.
The rifle was re-worked to serve as a customer's rifle for his pursuit of the Tiny Ten antelope of the Afrifca.
