Servicing

 

With our fully equipped workshop we can service almost any gun.  From a simple annual service to a full strip down and rebuild or the bespoke manufacture of a broken part, we can help. We also have blueing and browning facilities on site and pride ourselves on the quality of our finishes.  

Repairs

 

If the worst happens and your gun breaks down, you may see the broken component. Unfortunately we hear all too often, "I saw the ......had broken so I took it out and threw it away. Can you order me a new one please?"

Servicing

 

A service can mean so many things and there is no answer to the question “what do you do for a service?”  Sometimes we remove the woodwork and major components and inspect the gun; if it looks like it has been used very little since we last did it and there is no sign of dampness or corrosion, we may ring the customer and ask them how far they would like us to go. Other times it is a case of a complete strip and clean, inspection, polish, re-assemble and test.

Blueing and Browning

 

The part of your shotgun that needs the most maintenance from you is the barrels.

 

Over the years your gun may fire many thousands of shots and every shot that is fired wears the insides of the barrels very slightly. A modern shotgun can wear eight thousands of in inch internally (four thousandths each side) before it is “out of proof” at which time it should go to the proof house to be “re-proofed / re-proved”.
