Model 457 Royal is modeled after classic hunting rifles and goes back to their roots. The premium walnut stock is English style with a rounded cheek piece. The beautiful grain really comes into its own with an oil finish. Safari sling swivel mounts (each screwed twice) for removable sling swivels are attached. The slim Sporter Weight barrel is available in two lengths – 412.5 or 525 mm.
