A true Sidelock, for ultimate balance and crisper trigger pulls

Built to the highest quality, the Viscount is the next generation of William Powell sidelocks. 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 High Performance Steel Shot Proofed (up to ½ choke). 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.

The Viscount 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 the stock is made to their exact dimensions.

Fitted into a leather covered ABS travel case with combination lock.
