Making the finest handmade guns in London also gives us the ability to repair and maintain guns by any best gunmaker offering our tradition of servicing and restoration of fine shotguns and rifles.
What we offer
We can also advise on gun restoration, re-barreling or re-stocking of an older gun, as well as altering one to your specifications. As well as our own shotguns and rifles our craftsmen can care for your other best guns.
All work is carried out in our workshop where we provide a wide range of services required for the maintenance of your shotguns and rifles.
Watson Bros Owners
Owners of Watson Bros. shotguns and rifles are encouraged to regularly return them to the workshop to ensure they are kept in perfect order, maintaining not only their shooting performance but also investment value.
Shooting nowadays is far more demanding on a gun compared to those Edwardian days. Cartridges are faster, loads heavier, days bigger thus allowing the gun to get much hotter and prone to wear. This makes your end of season servicing far more important so please don’t delay and lets make all those important adjustments now.
After a thorough inspection the gun is totally stripped down by our finisher, cleaned and the action is treated to remove dirt and grime, and burnish any bright parts. When necessary, the pins are re-blued and a new protective lacquer is applied to the action. Meanwhile our in house stocker closely checks the stock and forend for any cracks.
Our barrel maker carefully inspects the barrels for any dents, bulges or loose ribs. The breech face is relined and the gun is reassembled. Before leaving the workshop the gun is given one final inspection by company owner to ensure all is well and the best work is being sent back to our clients.
