Westley Richards .250 Savage (.250-3000). Crafted upon a standard-length FN Mauser Model 98 action with a modified magazine box for proper feeding, this spectacular miniature dangerous game rifle wears a 24-inch tapered light sporter barrel (.580 muzzle diameter). The front sight base is bordered and stippled along its scalloped face, and topped with a fixed black blade, flip-up moon bead and engraved folding hood. The superb quarter rib begins with a matching bordered and stippled scalloped face and presents a windage-adjustable three-blade rear sight set (one fixed with a gold triangular aiming point and two folders marked “100” and “150” with gold sighting lines). The action itself has polished rails, the safety lever is modified to properly clear the scope and the bolt knob wears a single stippled accent field. The graceful stock begins with an ebony forend tip and is further dressed with 24 lines-per-inch partially-bordered wrapped checkering, deep pistol grip, slight Monte Carlo with scalloped cheek rest and shadow line, along with a steel grip cap. Attaching screws tighten securely on pillars. ENGRAVING: The quarter rib sports a well-executed brace of warthogs. Scroll accents compliment the action, front sight hood, quarter rib flat, rear base, bottom metal and screws. A brass plate on the toe line shows “MLL”. HISTORY: The consignor had the rifle rebarreled in its original caliber by Westley Richards in England. The game scene engraving was added at time, also at the factory. The case was made at that time as well. OPTIC: A fresh Swarovski 3-9x36A Habicht with plex reticle is present. DIMENSIONS: Weight is 9.2 pounds and length-of-pull is 14.0 inches. CONDITION: The bore is pristine, the new barrel only having been zeroed. Metal finish is at least 99 percent. Wood is well over 95 percent, with a few minor impressions, scratches and a few finish rubs. CASE: A fresh maker’s case with sling and cleaning rod is included.
