    MINT BORE, Early 1900’s Westley Richards & Co London Martini Action .300 Sherwood Extra Long (.300 Westley) Obsolete Centre Fire Calibre Target / Rook Rifle. Sn 16142 - 16142

    The .300 Sherwood, also known as the .300 Extra Long and the .300 Westley, is an obsolete centre fire rifle cartridge developed by Westley Richards. The .300 Sherwood was introduced by Westley Richards in 1901 in response to W.W. Greener's .310 Cadet cartridge. The cartridge was created by lengthening the much milder .300 Rook. As expected, the first rifles chambered for it were made by Westley designated as the "Sherwood" target rifle. Later other manufacturers produced rifles in the calibre including BSA, Vickers and Francotte, whilst high end double rifles were produced by Holland & Holland and Westley Richards. This is an excellent and sought after example of the Sherwood target / rook rifle by Westley Richards. It has a 27 ½” steel barrel which has a near mint bore, clean with well defined rifling and it measures 43" overall. Its Martini Action works crisply. It has all original wood stock and fore end. It has a steel butt plate. It has a blade foresight and flip up graduated ladder rear sight. The top of the barrel are signed by the manufacturer. The breech has .300 calibre detail and Westley Richards triangle mark. The rifle is serial number ‘5818’. The price includes UK delivery. NB As an antique obsolete calibre rifle no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 16142
