The Next Generation of Side by Side
Built to the highest quality, the Viscount is the next generation of William Powell sidelock. Engraved with a traditional, fine rose and scroll to the locks and underside of the action. The coin finish of this gun works beautifully in contrast with its highly figured, walnut stock.
Steeped in tradition, from its appearance to the way it handles, it is easy to forget this is a gun built for the future. Engineered using the latest technology, the Viscount is fully steel shot proofed (up to ½ choke in 12 and 20 bore only). It handles smoothly even when using modern loaded cartridges. With this in mind you will be safe in the knowledge that this gun is capable of shooting high birds with either lead or steel shot.
This model is available in 12, 16 or 20 bore and with a choice of 28, 29, 30 or 32 inch barrels. It also boasts a range of extra finishing touches that add to its overall elegance; beautifully carved tear-drops in the stock, coin finished furnishings, elongated trigger tang, and finest hand chequering.
Every Viscount is crafted to the unique measurements of each individual customer as standard. A complimentary gun fitting session is offered to our Viscount customers to ensure that their stock is made to the perfect dimensions. In addition, customers are able to customise their gun, making it bespoke to them with a choice of the following: the tightness of the fixed chokes (please note barrels with chokes over ½ will not be steel shot proofed), whether to have multi-chokes, the stock style (straight hand/ semi pistol grip) and single or double trigger options.
Fitted into a leather covered ABS travel case with combination lock.
