Stock Re-finishing

During this process the gun woodwork will be stripped of its current finish and the wood cleaned to remove old oils and dirt which have normally been accumulated and absorbed over time. All chequering will be cleaned and marked out so that the correct pattern is reapplied later

The woodwork will be then be refinished in traditional oil methods to suit the style of gun and its nature, colour and grain of the wood. Chequering will be re-cut by hand to ensure that a new clean grip is both crisp and suited to the style of the gun

All furniture of the gun will be removed and the action and components cleaned and inspected. Any potential problems will be noted and reported so that immediate action can be taken if required. We advise that the furniture will be re-blued and pins re-coloured so that the metalwork complements the newly refreshed woodwork

Stock Lengthening and Shortening

Where a stock extension has been requested the new wood being offered up will be matched up as best as possible to try and have some continuity between the grain and colour of the stock and the extension block. The extension will be fitted and finished to match the finish of the gun. In shortening and lengthening we are happy to finish the heel with chequering, a plate or pad

                                

Engraving

We have the services of a time-served gun engraver who will be happy to undertake any engraving from the cutting of a new pin or oval to the complete engraving of a gun. This work also includes gold inlay, game scene engraving and the enhancement of old engraving patterns

 

Stock Blanks

Although we carry a small selection of stock blanks, we have access to a very large selection of the finest Turkish and French walnut blanks. This supply of blanks is also relied upon by some of the most prestigious gunmakers in Britain to stock their new best guns

All stock blanks are hand picked in Turkey and France by our buyer who is very well informed in the qualities required of a blank to make a good stock. All blanks are guaranteed air dried - not boiled or kiln dried.  Alternatively, customers are welcome to supply their own blanks but this is dependent on quality, suitability and size
