Henry Atkin Sidelock Over & Under

The finest artisan craftsmanship combined with modern machining techniques, creates an incredibly elegant, delicate exterior with strength, durability and power built within.

After working for James Purdey & Sons, Atkin began building guns under his own name in 1875 and in 1877 opened his first premises in Haymarket, London using the name ‘Henry Atkin’ (from Purdey’s). Our Henry Atkin over & under shotguns are based on the Woodward style action, patented in 1913 and renowned for being lightweight, robust and one of the best O/U designs ever created.

With 70mm London steel superior proof barrels, our hand built Best Guns are created for modern day shooting demands, but retain their history, heritage and character with traditional “Atkin” rose and scroll engraving and extreme attention to detail. They are as beautiful now as they ever have been, and will last for generations of sporting adventures.

The graceful pistol grip stock will be made to customers measurements and fitted at our shooting school. With bespoke options of gold or silver engraved oval and de-luxe or exhibition walnut, you can create your own truly unique gun, hand built just for you.
