The quest to develop the finest gun for driven shooting was something of an obsession a century ago. Holland & Holland introduced the first modern ‘Royal’ hammerless ejector onto the market in 1894.
The Holland-patent hand-detachable locks were introduced in 1908. With the addition of the 1922 Holland patent self-opening system, we perfected our ‘best’ gun. We have been building it ever since.
The ‘Royal’ is the quintessential London ‘best’ gun, much copied by other makers but never bettered. The simple lock-work, proven ejectors and faultless self-opening mechanism ensure total reliability and ease of operation in the field.
The ‘Royal’ has been favoured by discerning sportsmen for over a century. Our single-trigger has been an option since 1894 and is time-proven and reliable. The classic choice.
