The Chapuis range of side by side shotguns are a credible alternative to the status quo of guns that you find on the market. 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.
The Classic RGP Round Design is an ejector model shotgun, with rounded action and detonating as well as ‘Blitz’ type trigger. It has double parallel locking lugs on the barrels as well as plunging center rib, with an optional special wingshooting rib. The fine English scroll engraving is wrapped around the action with game scenes on action sides and bottom. The Chapuis Armes Side by Side RGP can either be supplied in English straight hand stock, semi pistol, semi pistol rounded or full pistol. Each stock is carved from AAA (Grade 3) select walnut, with either splinter-type forend or beaver tail forend, both with flush lock. The barrel length of this gun can either be 24 inch, 26 inch, 28 inch or 30 inch. This Classic Side by Side gun has an oil finishing by hand with hand-checkering and comes in a fitted molded plastic case with coded locks.
The Classic RP Round Design is identical to the RGP Ejector Round Design model, however it is slightly different as it is fitted with side plates. It has a new engraving pattern in fine English scroll wrapped around the entire action, with new game scenes on the sideplates and the bottom of the action. This Chapuis Armes Side by Side shotgun can either be supplied in English straight hand stock, semi pistol, semi pistol rounded or full pistol. Each stock format is carved out of AAAA (Grade 4) fancy walnut with a matching chequered walnut buttplate. Barrel length can either be 24 inch, 26 inch, 28 inch or 30 inch.
Both the Chapuis 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. 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.
