A Distinguished Leader
Since 1802, we have been synonymous with building the finest shotguns. The William Powell Princeps Over and Under is no exception, adding an element of refined class to our already rich heritage of making best quality but very affordable shotguns.
Our brief was simple, to produce a top of the range over and under that complimented and enhanced the choice from our already existing range of continental shotguns. The concept was to create the perfect over and under for shooting Game in the UK, whilst maintaining excellent quality and value for money.
The Princeps is built on an elegant round-bodied action with hand engraved scroll to the sideplates, forend tip and steel capped Pistol Grip.
The stock and forend are fitted with exceptional grade four quality Turkish walnut. Stock dimensions include an additional semi-palm swell which allows greater ergonomic control of the gun and can be made for both right and left handed shots. As with many of our top models, made to measure stock dimensions are included in the price, ensuring a very comfortable fit and much more consistently accurate shooting.
As you would expect, the Princeps is High Performance Steel Proofed with 3” chambers and comes as standard with half and half fixed chokes. There is also the option to have Teague multi-chokes or our own multi-choking system fitted making the Princeps a fantastically versatile all-rounder.
Additional options include ‘Boss Style’ forend iron work, bespoke engraving, upgraded the woodwork still further, single or double triggers, solid gold or silver ovals.
Also included is a gun fitting session with us here in Oxfordshire, a bespoke made to measure stock, leather covered ABS travel case and a 5 year warranty against mechanical defects.Email the Gunroom
