Guns require on-going maintenance and servicing, like any mechanism, they are prone to wear and tear and from time to time need to undergo repairs and servicing. Our fully qualified gunsmith provides an extensive repair and maintenance service at our workshop in Sussex.
We undertake repairs on guns and restoration projects all receiving the same attention to detail from our master craftsman.
We can collect inside the M25 (see Delivery/Collection page for costs) or you can request a repair during your gun’s time in storage.
We’ll oversee your requirements including delivering back to you or into our storage facility.
Every gun is different, we’ll discuss your requirements and provide you with no obligation quotes for our repair, servicing and restoration service.
As well as our own gunsmiths, we work with several other highly skilled craftsmen and we’re confident we can undertake any project which we match to the gunsmith with the requisite skillset.
