Mr. Champion's Atkin

Mr. Champion's Atkin

 

An article written by John Ian Gregson in the Shooting Sportsmen, page 49 September/October 1999 issue, describing the only O/U ever made by Atkin  for a Mr. Champion as a special order gun. Other than the improved ejector system, the gun is identical to the Woodward OU. So much so that a legal conflict ensued between Woodward and a Mr. Hill. This Mr. Hill while under the employ of Woodward, had designed the Woodward OU and after leaving claimed it as his own. Very interesting part of gun development and history.
