E.J.Churchill MD Rob Fenwick Visits Perazzi
Rob Fenwick, Managing Director of E J Churchill visited the Perazzi factory near Brescia in Italy with RUAG Managing Director Phil Unwin in mid-June.
The visit was primarily for Rob and Phil to hold discussions with Mauro Perazzi and his team about the E J Churchill Crown model O/U which Perazzi make for Churchill. This was a ground-breaking deal set up two years ago and is the first time Perazzi have made guns for someone else. During the visit Rob was able to try out the very first new pair of side plated Crown o/us which are being made.
The smile on his face shows how pleased he is with the end result!
“We are really delighted to be working with Perazzi on this project which brings together their world-renowned manufacturing expertise with our specialist knowledge of what the modern game shot needs. Sales of this model are very strong and we are expecting a similar demand for the side plated model with Churchill scroll engraving. This gun is SCO grade and can also be ordered with colour-case hardening. Prices for the non-side plated Crown grade start at £11,500 inc VAT with a free fitting. The side plated model is expected to be around £25,000 inc VAT.”
