The Next Generation of Side by Side

An exceptional quality sideplated boxlock ejector, the Sovereign is inspired by our rich gunmaking heritage and brings together classic English styling with unrivalled value for money. The Sovereign is the next generation of side by side, where traditional craftsmanship is combined with the latest technology. Boasting high performance steel shot proofed barrels (available up to half choke). A true alternative to a traditional English shotgun but built with the future in mind.

Decorative, deep cut scroll engraving on both the sideplates and underside of the action, are matched with a beautifully figured, oil finished, straight hand stock.

Designed to take the recoil of modern cartridges, the Sovereign is very capable of shooting high birds with either lead or steel.

Off the shelf the Sovereign comes with fixed chokes of ½ and ½, and will be High Performance Steel Shot Proofed with 3-inch chambers as standard. A 16 bore model is available with 2 ¾” chambers.

Fitted into a black ABS travel case with combination lock.
