Purdey has been making the world’s finest shotguns, rifles and shooting accessories since 1814 when James Purdey opened his first shop on Princes Street in London. A Purdey is designed to last more than a lifetime. In the world of shooting, there is nothing more special than ordering a Purdey shotgun or rifle. Each and every aspect of the gun, including the stock and style of engraving, is chosen by you. It is built to your exact and detailed specifications. Our craftsmen build your gun to your measurements so as to ensure it fits you perfectly.
For customers who would prefer not to wait the 18-24 months required to have a bespoke gun built, Purdey holds a limited number of finished guns in their Gun Room at Audley House. Generally, new guns can be altered to fit you. Let us open our cabinets and help you find your perfect Purdey.

Our Side-by-Side Damascus shotguns were a world first. Crafted using Swedish Damasteel, the gun has exceptional strength. Our Damascus shotguns come in all available bores on dedicated actions. The absence of engraving reveals the extraordinary patterns unique to Damascus steel. Typically, we only engrave these guns with standard lettering or gold inlay so as to emphasize the dramatic look of the gun.
PURDEY HAMMER EJECTOR GUN
In 2004, in response to a revival of interest in hammer guns, we decided to reintroduce a design from the golden era of game shooting: our “bar in iron hammer ejector gun”. It is every bit as delightful to handle and shoot as it would have been in the nineteenth century heyday of the hammer gun.
