Cogswell & Harrison Windsor Shotgun

Cogswell & Harrison was established in May 1770 and is London’s oldest surviving gun maker. It has manufactured an exceptionally diverse range of sporting shotguns and rifles during its long and colorful history. It’s current “Bespoke” shotgun lists for a cool $80,000, but at SHOT the company launched a family of modern over/under shotguns called Windsor with a more lunch bucket price of around $2,000.

These shotguns combine traditional English design and skilled Italian craftsmanship. A game model is available in 12-, 20- or 28-gauge with 28” or 30” barrels with five internal choke tubes. Chambers are 3″ and steel shot proofed (28-gauge is 2¾”) with ejectors (extractors optional) and single selective trigger with automatic safety (also optional). Walnut stocks are available in right- or left-hand with a length of pull of 14 ½”. A Sporting version is also available.
