Among the Best Company

After fifty years of stewardship, Richard Beaumont approached the Richemont Group, keen to secure the future of the firm.

Richemont agreed to buy Purdey’s in 1994, at which point Richard Beaumont retired and appointed Athol Purdey’s grandson, Richard Purdey as Chairman - the first Purdey to be involved in the business since 1957.

By continuing our tradition of craftsmanship, excellence, and attention to detail, we hope that many generations to come will be able to enjoy the exceptional pleasure of owning a bespoke Purdey gun.
