Thread: Gunsmith in East Sussex or Kent area

    Gunsmith in East Sussex or Kent area

    Hi can anyone recommend a decent gunsmith in the East Sussex/Kent possibly Surrey area (preferably within an hour or so drive from Heathfield) that will do a good job of a re-crown and a barrel chop and re-crown on a couple of rimfires.

    I was going to speak to Sorrel Bros. in East Grinstead today so any reviews of their work?

    I had a chop and re-crown done by Diamond Shooting in Heathfield but to be honest I'm not that convinced how good a job he did as the accuracy is not as good as before and the price went from 80 when I first asked to 130 when I picked it up and took 5 weeks as he sent it off to proof.

    Paddy is a nice guy and his work is first rate.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    Do Chris Potters's in T.wells do gunsmith work? If not they could probably recommend someone.

    Now that you mention him I have heard him recommended before. I think I will give him a ring and have a chat.

    Rakers Gun Shop will do it for about 75 per gun - they own the precision engineers next to their shop, and have 4 on site gun smiths.
