When modern nitro express cartridges replaced black powder rifles for dangerous game, gunmakers worked to develop the ideal double rifle: one that would handle like a shotgun, be fast and instinctive to use and with the strength to weight ratios necessary to fire powerful cartridges and heavy bullets.
The ‘Royal’ double rifle is built to the very best standards, as befits the name. The bolstered action, introduced just after World War One, is elegant and strong. Back-action locks allow for a solid bar, adding rigidity and weight where it is most needed. The articulated front trigger guards against bruising and our patent ejector system is simple and reliable.
Available in any rimless, flanged or belted calibre, with individually regulated chopper-lump barrels and time-proven locks, bolts and ejectors, Theodore Roosevelt’s comment, “I do not believe there is a better weapon for heavy game”, stands true today. Where the game is close and the perfect shot must be taken in an instant, the ‘Royal’ double rifle is the best in the world.
