WELCOME

We are a traditional family firm, priding ourselves on good traditional quality service, one to one care, and attention to detail. Being such a traditional company, guns and not computers are our forte. Our website is therefore not always as up-to-date with photographs and current stock as we would like. So please do not hesitate to contact us if you are looking for anything special or individual to suit your shooting needs.
