Westley Richards “Ovundo” Shotgun

Nowadays we tend to take the over and under shotgun pretty much for granted, but this was not the case back in the early 1900's when the side by side reigned supreme and British gunmakers had not yet created what they considered a good action design. The first to get a good design created and ...

TarHunt Guns

When I think of a "Tahr Hunt" my mind conjures up images of a plane trip to "The land of the long white cloud" (New Zealand) and a journey into the "Lord of the Rings" country to hunt Himalayan Tahr. So when I first came across the guns from TarHunt I initially wondered if that ...

At that stage they were not yet making firearms however but small utility items that included waffle irons, door knockers and coffee grinders. The company progressively ...

Beretta 486 Parallelo
