    Somerton Guns....whatever happened to them?

    Just seen a Somerton Guns "Made by Arrieta" sidelock. I can remember the company's adverts in the 1980s. But whatever happened to Somerton Guns?

    Looking at Companies House, the company has been dissolved and last accounts were submitted in 1994...

    They had an in-house engraver who retired and I think it just petered out after that. I can remember the shop they were in but cant remember when they finished up.
    A.W. Rule and Son are just round the corner and they do a lot of high end work on Purdy, Hollands etc. So Somerton has still got a gun maker.
