We recommend that you get your shotgun fully serviced at least every two years, but if it’s seen heavy use, or been used in inclement weather it’s always wise to have it checked more regularly by a professional gunsmith.

Tailored gun fitting sessions are available from Arthur Branthwaite who has over 50 years of experience in the gun trade
