A true Sidelock, for ultimate balance and crisper trigger pulls.

Built to the highest quality, the Viscount is the next generation of William Powell sidelocks.

Engraved with a traditional, fine rose and scroll to the locks and underside of the action. The coin finish on this gun works beautifully in contrast with its highly figured, walnut stock.

Steeped in tradition, from its appearance to the way it handles, it is easy to forget this is a gun built for the future. Engineered using the latest technology, the Viscount is High Performance Steel Shot Proofed (up to ½ choke). It handles smoothly even when using modern high performance loaded cartridges. With this in mind, you will be safe in the knowledge that this gun is capable of shooting high birds with either lead or steel shot.

The Viscount boasts a range of extra finishing touches which add to its overall elegance; beautifully carved tear-drops in the stock, coin finished furnishings, elongated trigger tang, and finest hand chequering.

Every Viscount is crafted to the unique measurements of each individual customer as standard. A complimentary gun fitting session is offered to our Viscount customers to ensure that the stock is made to their exact requirements.

It comes in a leather covered ABS travel case with combination lock.

Made to Measure

Made to Measure to fit your build and shooting style

When you buy a William Powell Viscount you have the option to have the gun made to fit as part of the service. If you know your measurements, you can supply them to us and we will build your gun to fit you, allowing you to shoot to the best of your ability, as well as making your new gun unique to your shooting style. If you are unsure what your measurements are, why not speak to one of our Gunroom staff, who can arrange a Gunfit with a professional Gunfitter.

You will be amazed how much better you will shoot with a gun made to fit you, rather than one bought straight off the shelf.
