Purdey Double Rifle: Ref: HC140/S

Purdey Double Rifle: Ref: HC140/S

Double Rifle, .577

Renowned Master Engraver, the late Philippe Grifnee, decorated this fine and unique large calibre double rifle with large scroll and buffalo game scenes. Purdey have made very few rifles in this calibre, making this item extremely rare as a rifle in itself, let alone considering the engraving. Grifnee was known worldwide and sadly passed away unexpectedly at a relatively young age. His talent made him a legend in his own lifetime, and in passing away his work has become much sought after. The rifle itself has not been used for game since its manufacture in 1993, and so retains an as-new condition. It has been re-regulated by Purdey for sale, and a leather pad added for comfort, with a stock length of 15". The barrels are 24" in length, and the rifle has an overall weight of approximately 13lbs. The unique bespoke case has a full compliment of accessories. Please contact us for further information on this fine piece.

Purdey Shotgun HC145/S

Purdey Shotgun HC145/S

Side by Side, 12-Bore

The Jack Charlton Gun. This gun was built for legendary British footballer, John ‘Jack’ Charlton, who was a member of the World Cup-winning 1966 England team. Ten years after that famous victory, Purdey were commissioned to make a gun as a gift to Mr. Charlton. The gun was presented to him in Purdey’s famous Long Room by Henry Lawrence, then Director of the Company. The gun later appeared in Mr. Charlton’s hands in the TV series Jack’s Game, a series focussing on countryside pursuits broadcast in the early 1980s. On the fiftieth anniversary of England’s World Cup victory, Purdey were proud to welcome Mr. Charlton back to the Long Room, together with his shotgun. Having decided to retire from shooting, we have purchased the gun and now offer it as an opportunity for someone to acquire a unique piece of history, and comes with a collection of photographs and a letter, signed by Mr. Charlton, relating to his ownership of the gun. The gun has 27” barrels and a stock length of 15 ½”.
