Alastair Phillips from the Williams Evans gunroom introduces The Pall Mall made-to-measure side-by-side shotgun.
Designed to William Evans' blueprint and manufactured in consultation with our Spanish partners, Grulla Armas, the Pall Mall combines high-performance engineering from the highly respected European manufacturer with the finely tuned finishing processes applied by British craftsmen. As such, the Pall Mall represents exceptional value for a luxury grade product.
Pall Mall actions are modeled on the traditional H&H 7-pin sidelock pattern, a pattern which necessitates the British fine-tuning aspects of the build by British craftsmen. Added strength is built into the Pall Mall in the steel drop-forgings both in the square body action frame and chopper lump barrels. The gun design incorporates the H&H pattern of plunger style assisted self-opening mechanism, selective self-ejectors, intercepting safety sears and gold-line cocking indicators. Double triggers are standard on the Pall Mall.
Made from Belotta nickel chromium, Pall Mall barrels are proofed for all modern rounds including steel and regulated to improve both shooting characteristics and shot pattern quality. Barrels are supplied with fixed standard multi-chokes or the invisible Teague system can be supplied as an optional extra.
Pall Mall stocks are made to measure from a fitting at Bisley and with a choice of straight, pistol or Prince of Wales grip. The splinter-end fore-end is the Anson-style push-rod release mechanism. A choice of luxury grade walnut stock blanks can be viewed from photographs supplied by Grulla.
The gun is hand-engraved in traditional William Evans scroll design.
Pall Mall can be ordered in either 12-bore or 20-bore calibers, with barrel length of your choice from 25" to 32", a choice of rib styles, 2 ¾" chambers proofed to 1,234kg
The Pall Mall incorporates the qualities, most sportsmen desire in a traditional English game gun but at a fraction of the price. As a mark of faith in the product, we provide a lifetime warranty on all mechanical parts. This makes a Pall Mall a realistic, made-to-measure alternative to a pre-owned English gun at a similar price.
It is usual for a new Pall Mall gun to be delivered in 6-9 months from taking your order. Prices start from £15,000 inc VAT.
