Completing the Pair: How A. W. Rule and Son helped a client find the perfect Holland and Holland Royal for his collection

Every gun has a story, and here at A. W. Rule and Son Gunmakers, we are passionate about helping our clients find the perfect guns for their shooting experience and sharing their stories with the world.

Three years ago, a client tasked our Master Gunstock Maker Mr Gareth Rule to find him a DBHE 12Bore Holland and Holland Royal to complete his pair. Mr Rule used his extensive contacts in the industry to source a second gun that was manufactured 200 guns apart from his original, which you can see pictured here.

Once the gun was found, the client commissioned Mr Rule to restock the guns as a pair, a task that could only be done by a Master Gunstock Maker of Mr Rules’ calibre.

Each year, we maintain these fine pieces of equipment so our client has not one, but two hand crafted guns to use during the season.
