“The most remarkable of objects”
William & Son is recognised as a maker of the very best London guns.
A thousand hours in the making, a William & Son fully bespoke shotgun or rifle is a thing of unique beauty, perfect balance and finely tuned firepower.
The commissioning of a William & Son gun is an active engagement with expert artisans and craftsmen, from initial meeting in the gunroom with our resident gunsmith, close study of the shooting range to first action in the field.
After an in-depth shooting consultation, specialist barrel makers and actioners begin to work while a stocker hand carves and shapes richly grained walnut to create a gun fitted to our clients’ form and fancy. The hand engraving, a true celebration of an ancient art and an integral feature of the finest guns, is done to a limitless choice of designs.
Our dedication and commitment to making guns of the absolute highest quality is so strong that we only take on a few commissions a year.
