Christian Hunter



          The CSMC Christian Hunter is a British-inspired high grade shotgun made in two different models, boxlock side-by-side and sidelock over-and-under. The side-by-side Christian Hunter features an Anson & Deeley boxlock action, scalloped frame, southgate ejectors, platform lump barrels, detachable inspection plate, and a variety of engraving options. Each frame is also scaled to the gauges of 12, 16, 20, 28, and .410 gauge.

           The over-and-under Christian Hunter features a shallow-action sidelock, lockplates that provide room for engraving, blued lock plate pins and trigger, extended trigger guard tang, coin or color cash hardened finish, and your choice of pistol grip, Prince of Wales, and straight grip stock combined with a Deeley forend. This model is available in 12, 20, 28, and .410 gauge. 

           The CSMC Christian Hunter is a true custom made gun from the top talent from Connecticut Shotgun Manufacturing Company. A true world class shotgun made to a very familiar style and handmade to the highest quality.




“Visually, the Christian Hunter is a certain triumph – but what of its performance in the field? Thankfully it is just as good to shoot as it is to look at.”

"I just wanted to let you both know how pleased I am with the shotgun you built for me. It is everything I had hoped for and more. The wood is incredible. It is an honor for me to own what I feel is a piece of history. To own a side by side of this beauty, quality and have it made in the tradition of the New England gunmakers. I am a New Englander (from Maine), and am pleased that Connecticut Shotgun is making such a positive impact on the industry. Please thank those who were involved in building my gun."
