Artisan Side by Side

 
 

The Chapuis Artisan range of side by side shotguns are built on the same action as the classic, but offer full hand engraving and upgraded walnut which you get to choose. So if you like a bit of bling on the peg then an Artisan is for you. If you are a traditional game shot who prefers to shoot a side by side, but your old English gun either doesn’t fit or has become unreliable, then the Chapuis range is an affordable option to consider vs AYA or a second hand Purdey et al. The Chapuis range of shotguns are built on the same action as the robust range of double rifles, so are very robust.

Chapuis RGP Artisan Ejector

This RGP Artisan Ejector is hand engraved as well as having signed, deep-cut engraving, which frames game scenes on both action sides and action bottom. It has double parallel underlugs and  ‘Blitz’ type trigger, and the barrel length can either be 24 inch, 26 inch, 28 inch or 30 inch.

Chapuis RP Artisan Ejector

It has a hand-contoured round action and detonating, and a receiver that is fully engraved in a continuous tapestry that frames and enhances delicate new game scenes in the traditional Chapuis French style. It also has double parallel underlugs and ‘Blitz’ type trigger.

Both the Chapuis Artisan RP & RGP come with a complimentary gun fitting with W Horton & Sons. If you order a fitted gun from us you can also choose from a range of laser engraved scenes to be added to the sides and underside of the action. In addition to the stock and forend format you can choose from either double or single (non selective) triggers. You can also choose from either coin finish or case hardened finish action. You even get to choose your stock blank. The Chapuis range of guns are very slender in form and given all the bespoke touches that you can add to your taste, these guns are as bespoke as you are going to get in this price range.

Why buy an off the rack gun and compromise when you can get the gun you want made to your exact specification and to fit you out of the box.
