With more than 40 years’ experience in the trade, we specialise in a broad spectrum of firearm related services with regards to gunsmithing.

A collection of seven lathes are used for all steelwork, including thread cutting for silencers, custom thread cap, bushing & mechanism manufacturing, barrel profiling & fitting, and many more.

Other specialist tools include two large milling machines, up to six stationary drills, sandblasting units, numerous sanding and polishing machines, as well as a wealth of unique tools, reamers, gauges and more that have been collected and imported over the years.
