You may have seen this beautiful Side by Side in the store recently but we haven’t had a chance to give a proper introduction til now. Chapuis Armes is a storied French gun-maker based in Saint-Bonnet-le-Château that has been family owned and operated since the early 20th Century. In 2019, Beretta Holdings began the process to acquire them and we saw our first shotguns from them in late 2023.
While they offer Over/Under as well as big game Double Rifles, we started with their Side by Side: the Chasseur
Pictured here is our first shotgun from Chapuis, the Chasseur Classic in 12 Gauge with 28″ barrels. The Chasseuer is a scalloped and engraved box lock action with a classic straight grip, automatic safety, double triggers, and ejectors. The barrel has a wide solid rib and interchangeable choke tubes.
