Elan Classic

The Elan Classic is an African-style double rifle, or “express” as these hunting guns were called in the golden age of the safari. Chapuis has modernized the looks and features of this traditional design, making it perfect for the safari hunter of today who still prefers to trek in the veldt with a double rifle. Unlike the oldies, the Elan offers ejectors, manual safety, provision for scope mounting, and a maneuverable overall length of approximately 41 inches (max). Grade 3 Circassian walnut stock with cheek piece, extensive scroll and game engraved boxlock action.

Elan Artisan

The Elan Artisan double rifle is for the traditionalist big game hunter who also wants to win out in the field of exclusive style and taste. Besides all the winning features of the Elan Classic, the Artisan sports fully hand-engraved sideplates bearing acanthus leaves, geometric scrolls and African game animals. But perhaps the most eye-catching aspect of this rifle is the 5A oil-finished, highly figured walnut stock, designed to impress around the campfire as well as come up to the shoulder instinctively when the chips are down. 5A Circassian walnut stock with cheek piece, hand-engraved boxlock action with sideplates.
