Our Sporter is the result of two centuries of gun-making tradition combined with twenty-first-century know-how. Simply put: it’s the best in its class. It took us three years of painstaking research, development and rigorous testing (and 84 separate design modifications and improvements) to reach the production of the Sporter. It was all worth it to produce a gun that’s built to an extremely fine tolerance. The Sporter promises you long-term mechanical integrity and strength, as well as a robust and reliable service for years to come.

A Modern Marvel

Our Sporter is a Purdey original design that we created to meet the demands of the modern shooter. The Field magazine described it as possibly the finest Over-and-Under design ever conceived. In 2008, we collaborated with Perugini & Visini to launch the original Sporter. In 2022, we decided to bring this design entirely in-house and create a London-made Sporter.As with all of our new shotguns, the Purdey Sporter is steel proofed as standard.


Anti-Corrosion Technology 

Developed in-house by our team of craftsmen, our Sporter is the first model in our range of guns to incorporate our anti-corrosion coating. This special coating is applied to all the internal parts of the action and provides valuable protection against rust.

Teague Chokes

The Purdey Sporter comes with Teague removable chokes included in the price, although the client can choose to have fixed chokes if desired. This exceptionally strong and durable gun has been designed with the rigours of modern shooting in mind and is perfectly suited to handling very high volumes of cartridges.

Second-Generation Design

The second-generation Sporter has been redesigned with an elegant, low-profiled action, and a non-detachable trigger mechanism. This updated design also incorporates many of the lessons we have learnt from our award-winning Trigger Plate action. It has a reduced barrel weight, which makes it lighter, well-balanced and a better handling gun. For the first time, the Sporter also has its own Rose & Scroll engraving pattern.
