Holloway & Naughton ®
launched the new Britannia range of side-lock Over and Under
shotguns at the recent Word English Sporting Championships held at
the end of June, at the Lakenheath Shooting Ground and Clay Target
The new Side-Lock, Over and
Under guns are aimed primarily at the serious Game shooter, who is
looking for a truly bespoke English shotgun of the finest quality.
However, the range also includes a Sporting Clays model, in order to
cater for the needs of those shooters too.
Both models are available
with either fixed or multi-chokes, which have been designed and made
in flush or extended versions. Barrel weights are optional, with an
average weight for the Game variant being approximately 7.25 lbs
(3.3 Kg) with either 28” or 30” barrels, and the Sporter, with
extended chokes and barrel lengths between 28” and 31”, having a
total weight of approximately 8 lbs (3.6 Kg).
In addition, there is a
choice of triggers on all models which are available both as fixed
or adjustable variations. Both the Game and the Sporter models are
available with a selection of solid or ventilated ribs.
Noting the exacting
requirements of both classifications of discerning shooter, there is
a total range of custom engraving options on all of the Britannia
range, and will be to the exceptional quality levels currently
available on the existing Premier model.
The stocks for both variants
are the highest grade Turkish Walnut, and once more, the choice of
style and configuration will be determined by the Customer.
Both models come with “no
quibble” ten year guarantee, providing the manufacturer’s guidelines
have been adhered to, and in the unlikely event of a failure, the
gun will be repaired free of charge, no matter where the Customer is
Andrew Harvison, owner of
Holloway & Naughton ® believes that this is the most exciting time
for the Company since he entered the world of gun making
approximately fifteen years ago. The launch of the new range of
shotguns, will take the Company and the Brand to a completely new
level. It is planned to introduce both the Premier and the Britannia
into new and emerging markets. Plans for such activities are well
developed, and will be executed over the coming months.
Focussing on the future
development of the new range, the additional calibres of 20g and
28g, will be launched at the Safari Club International Convention
held in Reno Nevada USA, between the 21st to the 24th of January
