Longthorne Gunmakers Ltd is an innovative English gun making company formed in 2010
MD James Longthorne Stewart started development of our guns in 2006 and then we launched them 2010.
Longthorne guns are manufactured entirely at their factory in Northampton, England.
The most significant feature of our guns are the globally patented barrels which are machined from one single block of steel, ensuring strength, lightness and also significantly reduces the ‘felt recoil’ and ‘muzzle flip’ of the guns. They can also all be proofed for steel shot.
For example a 12 bore gun with 30” barrels weighs approximately 7lb but is still stable (it is possible to make them heavier if required).
We fully machine all parts of our guns to exacting tolerances from single pieces of high specification steel, we do not solder or weld any part of our guns.
Longthorne manufacture a range of luxury bespoke ‘true’ sidelock guns. Clients are able to specify certain features such as stock dimensions, barrel length, fore-end and stock shape and we also have some chargeable options as detailed on our price list.
Our company are also launching a range of ‘boxlock’ guns available from stock, an example will be available at The New Product Centre at IWA 2020.
