Singles and pairs, sidelocks and boxlocks are Andy’s speciality and he has forged working alliances with the leading gun manufacturers and traders in the UK.
Andy creates stocks for quality brand new guns through to cherished and highly valued vintage guns, singles or pairs. If one of your pair is broken or damaged Andy will craft a new stock to match the existing stock.
The craft of the stockmaker involves carving, cutting, shaping and fitting the wood to the metal.
There is a surprising level of intricate carving behind the metal work. It’s a skill in itself to cut, shape and carve in three dimensions so the workings and moving parts of the gun’s internal mechanism sit tightly and securely within the wood.
