COVID-19 Coronavirus Update
To help minimise the impact and spread of the coronavirus and help keep both customers and staff as safe as possible. This service is currently closed until further notice. We are currently not taking any more personal items into the shop, sorry for any inconvenience.
We would be happy to give an estimate on any gunsmithing requirements Some of our most common requests include:
- Full strip and clean
- Stock alterations including bend & cast, shortening and lengthening
- Stock re-finishing and re-chequering
- Replacement of firing pins and top lever, main and safety springs
- Refinish Stock / Forend (Oil Finish)
Gun proofing & safety – All shotguns are checked for Black Powder or Nitro Proof before any work is undertaken.
We recommend that you get your gun 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
