Shotgun, Rifle and Pistol Repair, Servicing, Renovation

I do my own machining on site and undertake work for retail shops, other gunmakers and private customers alike.

I undertake all aspects of repair work from simple servicing, to hand-making and fitting the most delicate lock components. When you come to me you are dealing with the person who is working on your gun and takes pride in a reputation for being open and straightforward. I have worked hard to build up a reliable network of contacts across the trade for any work that does need to be sent away.

Unfortunately I do not undertake work on airguns.
