Expert gun repair

Just like any machine, guns are susceptible to wear and tear. This is why it is imperative to make sure that you get your gun repaired as soon as you notice a problem, no matter how small. Small problems soon become big ones, and this is a risk you definitely cannot afford to take when it comes to something like a gun.


What parts of the gun can be repaired?

From the barrels to the firing pin, there are many different parts of the gun that can be repaired. Often, it makes much more sense to get your gun repaired rather than paying for a replacement. If you are unsure, we will be more than happy to assess the condition of your gun and provide you with our expert advice on the best steps to take.

What are the dangers of not repairing your gun?

If you do not repair your gun, you are at a huge risk of a disaster occurring. It is as simple as that! If your gun has parts that are broken or do not work in the way they should, this means that there is a very high risk that your gun could malfunction. We don’t need to tell you that the consequences of this could be severe. It is simply not worth the risk.

Common problems that require professional gun repair

From shotgun barrel replacement to firing pin repair, we cover all of the repairs you could possibly need, and we do so to the highest of standards.


What are some of the most common repairs needed?

There are many different problems that people can encounter when it comes to their rifles and shotguns. Examples include; cracked parts, timing issues, broken firing pin and malfunctioning safety.

Of all of the issues mentioned, there is no denying that they are all causes for concern, but a malfunctioning safety is definitely the most dangerous problem of them all.

If the firing mechanism doesn’t disable, the safety is useless.

No matter the problem, don’t wait around. Make sure you get your gun repaired as soon as possible.
