Big thanks

18 March 2022

Just like to say a big thanks to the team at Stephen and son. Bought a secondhand shotgun from them remotely . It was better than the photos and description and the dealer transfer was easy. Would have no problem dealing with them again.

Great experience

1 February 2022

I had a great experience buying my first shotgun with Stephen and Son Gunmakers.

Naturally buying my first gun I needed some guidance, and was hesitant to ask any basic/novice questions, but my fears were laid to rest as the customer service from everyone at the shop was second to none!

Stephane went the extra mile in making sure the Stock length, trigger position and the overall gun was suited to my size.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend these guys whether your buying your first or fifth gun, I’m sure the experience will be worthwhile!

Thanks again

Great service from Stephane and team. Super knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. Not often you leave a shop, spending as much as I did and feel like you should buy the owner a beer. Great range of kit and some beautiful guns. Merci à vous!

I picked up my DT10 from the new workshop today and wow! What a lovely job Vincent has done on the oiled finished wood work 😍 Stephan has worked wonders on fixing the trigger so no longer loose. I would highly recommend these guys. A high end finish by two very professional and extremely friendly men. Thank you very much

Personal touch

I have bought two guns from here and have no hesitation in recommending them for their knowledge and personal touch. Their fitting services are spot on, and have improved my shooting and provided the correct gun for my daughter.

Efficient and friendly service in a fascinating workshop with some beautiful stocks to gawp at


Best Chapuis stocker

Stephane is the best chapuis stocker you can find. Proper stockers in the trade call him that. If you want chapuis quality you go to Stephane he is the best in the trade.


Great service

Great service from Stephane and team. I ordered a custom Chapuis C140 and he absolutely ensured that my gun would fit perfectly, and it makes a big difference. Stephane is a very competent stocker and gunmaker and has a deep relationship with Chapuis that shows in the purchase process.

I highly recommend him and will look forward to purchasing other guns there in the future.

An absolute pleasure

Dealing with Stephen & Son (Stephane) was an absolute pleasure, it’s not often you come across someone providing such good customer service and help. His standard of work is exceptional, this can also be seen by virtue of some of the Companies he does work for. As a new customer I’m pleased to have dealt with Stephane and hope to do so for many years to come. I would have no hesitation is recommending him and his work.

Overexceeded my expectations

1 April 2019

Stephen & Vincent are two master craftsman and true professionals when it comes to stockwork. I have just collected my Beretta where I was an extension and recast. The stock has a very complicated grain and they made the extension tie with the existing grain so well. It is so beautiful and the attention to detail is fantastic. I will only be returning to Stephen & Son. Thank you

Second to none

1 April 2016

I have worked with Stephen for ten years and his stocking work on best London guns is second to none,i have worked in the gun trade for 47 years and Stephens stocking, shaping and finishing is as good if not better than most of the stockers I have worked with.

Paul West

True artisan

It has been absolute pleasure to work with Stephane. He is a true artisan and expert in his field. You will not be disappointed if you engage with his services.

Sam Cranwell

Highly recommended

I’ve had the pleasure of using Stephanes Services for many years; first introduced to him over 7 years by a mutual friend who had been having his stocks repaired and couldn’t recommend Steph highly enough. What a great introduction; I have had my stocks adjusted here – steph is highly skilled; spent hours working with me on getting the right fit! and even took me out to shoot afterwards to make sure the adjustments were to my satisfaction. I took Stephane another stock over the weekend again great service; and I was surprised to see how far things had changed – Steph has moved from the repair side of business – into some Retail, and now carries many objects of desire….. quite possibly bad for my wallet.

Stpehen & Son Gunmakers come highly recommended from me.

Andy Bowker

Standout service and talent

It’s rare that you come across standout service and talent like this. I have had the pleasure of working with Stephane for many years and he is a true gentleman and master of his craft. Stephen and Sons earns my highest recommendation.
