Bbuilt on a standard length '98 Mauser action wtih a flag safety and lever locking floor plate. Engraved in a scroll pattern common in the era.
G&H side mount is fitted to the rifle and and engraved to match.
25" barrel has a banded front swivle with WR pattern island rear sight with 1 standing/2 folding leaf Express sights (150, 250. 350 yds) and WR patent combincation foresight.
Westley's patent detachable is designed to easily remove the barrelled action from the stock. The stock is fitted with a large recoil lug screw and a dovetailed action tang that joints to a steel tab in the stock. The trigger guard screw tightens the tang. The stock is of a light colored European walnut with nice, straight figure. There is a horn capped full pistol grip, horn forend tip and point pattern checkering with Mullered borders. Right hand beaded cheekpiece, traditional "hook & loop" sling eyes on the stock and barrel, and a 14 1/4" LOP over the original Silver's Anti-Recoil (A-R) Pad.
Save for the G&H sidemount, rifle remains original with about 95% original black on the metal and most of its hand rubbed oil finish on the stock.
Bore is mint and rifle is sound. The G&H rings have been replaced with a new set of steel 1" rings. Overall a decent rifle that shoots well.
