Watson Bros. – Fine, Unique English Shotguns

Creating a Best London Gun

The unique feature about Watson Bros. is our new gun designs are built for a desire to create guns we are passionate about. This started many years ago with our roundbody guns and was followed by our 4 bores and now our 8 bore production, not to forget our new hammer ejector guns. As independent gunmakers we’re free to design and build what we like without having to get boardroom approval beforehand.


Manufacturing a Best London Gun

Although our guns are progressive in style and mechanical ability we do have our factory in a typical production line system. With all our craftsmen being employed under one roof expertise is always available when you need it.

Making the Best Gun is a straightforward process, each craftsman completes his apprenticeship in a specialised area with quality being of paramount importance.

A Best Watson Bros. Stock & Oil

Exhibition walnut comes as a standard on all Watson Bros. guns. It takes many hours and preservance to eventually find the best walnut for a Watson Bros. gun.

For every 30 blanks we buy on a trip we generally have to look at approximately 1,000 pieces. We always keep close to 200 exhibition blanks at our factory to choose from to suit all our clients tastes.

Bespoke Hand Engraving

Watson Bros, guns are easily recognisable because of our unique style. We also have a wide range of engraving styles and designs, mostly within the cost of the gun. Our philosophy is very simple, by incorporating ornate styles of engraving in the cost it means every new gun represents the Watson Bros. name in a new light.

Our registered design roundbody over and under, as featured at the Victoria & Albert museum in London, features our distinct coffin shape taper on the back of the action.
