You will be able to specify a 12, 16 or 20 bore with 28″, 29 “or 30″ barrels, their choking and to have the gun stocked to your measurements, following a gun-fitting session by Tom Payne, one of the country’s top gunfitters.

The Pegasus is completely hand-finished, polished and hand-engraved in the very best full bouquet and scroll engraving. The stock is exhibition grade walnut with a horn capped Prince of Wales grip and the best fine chequering. The gun comes with a best quality hand-made leather gun case. It is one of the finest over-and-unders at this price on the market.


Zenith Side-by-Side RRP £11,950


This model is the very best William Powell side-by-side with a seven-pin rebounding lock and fully-assisted self-opening action. The engraving is executed by hand and features a beautiful and complex acanthus pattern. It is stocked in exhibition grade walnut and hand-chequered in the best William Powell style. The finish is exceptional and it comes complete with a best quality hand-made leather gun case.
