The Sporter

“Possibly the finest over-and-under design ever conceived.”

The Purdey Sporter is the best in its class. A remarkable over-and-under, taking the most admired elements of Purdey heritage and combining them with 21st-century know-how.

Elegant, low-profiled and beautifully scroll-engraved, the Sporter is built around an action by Edwinson Green. The Field described it as ‘possibly the finest over-and-under design ever conceived.’ Naturally, the walnut stock is bespoke; hand-carved and finished from the blank you selected in the Long Room.

At our workshop in London, the advantages of modern technology blended with centuries-old craft. It is this, and the help of our boutique gunmaking partners in Italy’s gunmaking capital, that weaves competition-winning levels of accuracy into the DNA of this consummately English gun.

We offer the choice of Teague removable chokes before your Sporter is submitted to the London Proof House. There it will undergo  ‘superior’ lead and steel shot testing as standard. Finally, your gun will be hand-regulated and finished at our London factory, the traditional way.

The result is a Purdey shotgun offering longevity, elegance and magnificent handling.

“A superb shotgun.” — The Field

“This fabulous shotgun shoots like a dream.” — Shooting UK
