Westley Richards game gun

I was shown a really nice Westley Richards game gun this morning. A mate bought it and the stock is still too short at 15" after extending it (really nicely done) so he is looking to move it on.
I did sell one of a pair a few years ago but this is a single gun, Browned Damascus barrels, PoW pistol grip stock and comes in a case with the correct label. I didn't see what it was proofed for but I understand it was shot regularly with light nitro loads. A very nice pointable side by side.
As soon as he sends the photos I'll put them up. I'm not selling it but am happy to pass on the owners details to anyone seriously interested.

Got me a Westley Richards 12 bore BP double barrel jobby that's taking up space in my cabinets, problem is the barrels have no proof marks which is a bit of a bugger.

You are restricted in selling it to a dealer then!

Sorry for the thread highjack, I’m assuming modern cartridges can be used? Thanks
