What first made this gun famous was the iconic sketch in Battles and Leaders of a Confederate sniper positioned in a tree branch with his trusty Whitworth rifle. Since the 1970's when Navy Arms first began producing the Parker-Hale Whitworth, the gun has been used by skirmishers, precision target shooters and hunters alike, all to great effect.
The Parker-Hale Whitworth features an American walnut stock sporting the famed round "Parker-Hale" stock cartouche and checkered at the wrist and forend. Bone charcoal color-case hardened hammers, locks and barrel bands are all hand-finished in the United States, and a precision hammer-forged .451 hexagonal-bored barrel ensures unparalleled accuracy at the farthest distances.
This round-bored cousin of the Whitworth is also made in .451 caliber and has all of the features specified in the Whitworth. The Volunteer is better suited for shorter range accuracy (under 200 yards).
