All our fine game guns have undergone an extensive programme of restoration. All barrels have been Re-London Nitro Proofed to 2 3/4" chambers. They naturally have a practical and sensible wall thickness, fine walnut stocks and forends, have a minimum LOP of 14 1/2" and have all undergone a refurbishment of their traditional oil finish and have been skillfully re-checkered. Gun specification measurements are approximate and are for guidance only.
These very special guns are the result of a long standing ambition to create a Homage to the finest Victorian Hammer Guns. Over the years I have rescued exceptional donor guns and with the help and skill of my team of the best traditional gunsmiths remade them to the very highest standard.I believe these guns are unique and the very best available.

Over 30 years I have collected Purdey shotguns. I have over 25 fine examples of the art of gun making by Purdey. They include muzzle loading shotguns, rifles; single and double, early patents of pinfires, very early centre-fire hammer guns of the varying Purdey patents, classic sidelock and bar-in-wood hammer shotguns, early hammerless sidelocks, and over-and-unders. Some of the guns are listed separately on my website. The whole collection includes Purdey memorabilia, cases, tools and accessories, and display cabinets. This is a very rare opportunity to acquire a unique piece of history and would compliment any collection or gun room display. Please contact me for price and for further details.Price on request
