About Chapuis Armes

Chapuis Armes established in 1934 in a small village near St Etienne (The French equivalent to Birminghams Gun Quarter). It is now managed and run by 3rd generation of the same family, David & Vincent Chapuis.

Over that time, the Chapuis brand has become synonymous with very reliable, accurate and aesthetically pleasing double rifles. In the 1970’s the family diversified into making equally elegant game shotguns with one view in mind, never to compromise on quality. There is one statistic that tells you this has been achieved, not one Chapuis shotgun has ever been returned for a factory defect.
