Established in 2002, Stephen & Son Gunmakers is owned and run by master gunmaker Stephane Dupille.

I am extremely passionate about my work. My motto is:

Quality always comes first.

Stephane Dupille

After graduating with an engineering diploma in France, Stephane spent three years at Leon Mignon School of Gunmaking in Liege, Belgium. In 1994 whilst doing his apprenticeship at the famous gunmakers Marcel Thys and Sons, Stephane graduated with a diploma of Actioner and Stocker. He went on to work for Gastinne Renette in Paris for a while before coming a full time Stocker for J.J. Sipp in Strasbourg.

In 1998 Stephane left France to achieve his lifelong ambition to work on English guns. He worked for Watson Bros followed by a position at the prestigious company of Holland & Holland.

In 2002 he started out himself within the premises of Atkin, Grant and Lang, where he spent six years working for them and many other famous gunmakers.

In 2008 Stephane setup his own workshop in Harlington, Bedfordshire offering services to both the gun trade and the public.

A selection of trade customers include: Purdey & Sons, Holland & Holland, Boss & Co, William & Son, Westley-Richards, John Dickson & Son, PV Nelson, Atkin, Grant & Lang, Charles Boswell and many others, whilst members of the public travel from far and wide for the quality service and fine selection of guns Stephen and Son Gunmakers has to offer.
