The distinguished pedigree of the Holland & Holland ‘Sporting’ shotgun reaches back to the time when clay target shooting was a fledgling sport, born of the then popular pastime of live pigeon shooting.
For the enthusiast who enjoys both clay and game shooting, the ‘Sporting’ model combines ideal performance with the aesthetic qualities of a Holland & Holland game gun and promises lively and responsive handling.
“The gunmakers of Holland & Holland have long taken pride in the company’s reputation for progressive design, a reputation further enhanced by the introduction of the ‘Sporting’ over-and-under.”
Ease of maintenance, absolute reliability and the instinctive handling that only a bespoke gun possesses were the objectives of the gun’s creators. Holland & Holland’s detachable trigger lock was the result – fully interchangeable, the entire assembly can be removed for inspection and cleaning with an easily operated release lever in the trigger guard. Versatility is the key to the performance, its design offering tremendous scope for the committed shooter with specific requirements.
The finished result is breathtaking in terms of execution and imagination – truly a Best London Gun in every sense and made entirely at our factory.
