The word ‘custom’ defines “that which is built to personal order”. It follows that a custom rifle is built to the individual specifications of the customer, right down to the smallest detail. Whether it be hand cut checkering to pattern to your taste, a quarter rib with express sights, a skeletonised grip cap or butt plate – or all of these features with scroll engraving, you become the owner of a truly individual work of art. Every stock is hand cut, inletted, shaped and checkered to your exact requirements.
No other rifle exists anywhere like yours. Dealing with a small, select international clientele, Alan Henry has a distinct preference for styling and shaping along the lines of the pre war British Rifles such as the great Rigbys, Wesley Richards and Holland and Holland rifles. Blending in features from the post war classic american influence to produce a rifle of not only impeccable taste, but also balanced like a fine smooth bore and a joy to behold. It is this balance that cannot be demonstrated in any catalogue and which rounds off that final dimension of a handmade firearm that brings one as close as humanly possible to perfection.
Each rifle is such that it reflects not only the taste and specifications of its owner, but takes on such a unique combination of the the first class components from the worlds best manufactures from USA, Germany and Austria that bit can truly be said to take on a soul of its own.
Something very special from Africa.
