|We would like to introduce you to the well known French firm of Chapuis Armes, a remarkable gunmaker from the hills overlooking Saint Etienne, France.
This company makes no compromises or short cuts in the manufacturing process where every detail is painstakingly taken into account. From the selection and quality of the wood, the magnificent detailing and engraving of the actions to the labor intensive regulation of the barrels; nothing is left to chance.
Their guns are entirely manufactured in their own facility and are fitted and finished by hand in the old world methods passed down from generation to generation.
The stock wood comes from centuries old walnut trees that are from the Caucasus area and then hand carved and fitted to each gun by their stock makers who finish the stocks by hand rubbing many coats of oil to produce a virtually waterproof finish that reveals the extraordinary contrast and textures of the unique wood selected.
Chapuis has managed to preserve the eternal, classical lines and balance which have been the hallmark of Chapuis guns since the beginning and the shooting and hunting public has given this company a solid endorsement for their efforts.
Whether you are in the market for a classic big bore double rifle, a take-down travel ready bolt action or a sleek round body game gun for wingshooting, Chapuis Armes offers a model to suit your passion for hunting.
