At auction today I bought a rifle that I have searched for for awhile. It has 4 things going for it and one against.

1. My favorite BPE caliber a .500BPE #2.
2. It's a Westley.
3. It's hammerless.
4. It sports damascus barrels.

The bad. Looks like it's been restocked. Doesn't look terrible but not great either.

Nice looking rifle. Does the .500 BPE #2 have the 3" or 3 1/4" case? Will you be shooting it with black powder, or a smokeless for black substitute load? What bullet would be appropriate for the Damascus barrels?

3" I've always loaded it smokeless for black and used cast bullets.

Mike,
It looks more like a refinish of the original stock, during the fitting of the pad. It looks like a great rifle, I wouldn't worry about it.

Der Ami look at the top of the panels right behind the action. The top lines are way off.

Mike

You going to reshape the stock if the inletting is OK?
After you stabilize the cracks?

Most likely. Will think hard about having it "regrained" to a higher looking grade of wood also. A pretty girl deserves a pretty dress.

I would like to have them but will have to see if my skill or lack thereof is up to it.
