Building a New Carl Russell & Co 470 Rifle
Posted on 12th May 2018
We are currently building a new Carl Russell and Co 470 rifle which we are building on a Holland and Holland back lock action. The Holland and Holland back lock action was introduced just after World War One, this bolstered action is both elegant and strong. The Carl Russell and Co double rifle we are currently building has a hand-detachable sidelock design, with two triggers and safety. It will be stocked using the finest walnut, with a pistol grip. Finished with an engraved gold oval. To complete the rifle we will present it in an oak and leather case with accessories.
This rifle will be offered for sale.
If you would like any more information on any of our shotguns or rifles and our workshop services please do not hesitate to contact us.
