I picked up a Cape Buffalo trigger guard and grip cap at an auction. The trigger guard still needs to be polished up and drilled out. Thought it would be cool to put on an old rifle I was fixing up. Then I saw an episode of American Rifleman or one of the shooting shows and it was showing the Drillings with Cape Buffalo trigger guards. Does this look like it could fit a Drilling?

Looks like room for two triggers to me, but you'd have to lay it on the drilling to really know. Can you post the dimensions? Maybe some drilling owners could measure their trigger guards to compare.

I think that will have to go on a single trigger gun. I measured a CZ combination gun and an American SxS double, and each has a little more than 2.5" of space inside the guard. I wouldn't want a smaller guard on either gun, even without gloves. The guard and grip cap will have a lot of class on your old rifle though, especially if you can find a horn butt plate.
