 James Purdey & Sons have been making the finest quality guns, rifles and accessoriesin London since the year 1814, supplying many of the world’s most distinguished anddiscerning people with their shooting needs, not least the British Royal Family.Queen Victoria ordered her first Purdeys in 1838: a pair of pistols, as a royal gift tothe Imam of Muscat. Her eldest son the Prince of Wales, later King Edward VII,granted his Royal Warrant to the founder’s son, James Purdey the Younger, in 1868,an honour subsequently accorded to the firm by each succeeding British Monarch,including Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, and by HRH The Duke of Edinburghand HRH The Prince of Wales.The design of sporting guns advanced rapidly in the sixty years between 1820 and1880. Purdey was at the forefront of these technical innovations, just as it is today,through its development of advanced CNC machining techniques for gunmaking.What has remained unchanged throughout Purdey’s history is the passion forperfection and precision, and the never ending search for improvement.It is these qualities which lie at the heart of the exceptional elegance, performance,and longevity built into all Purdey guns, and on which the firm’s world famousreputation is built and maintained.
