Thread: Gunsmith Near Inverness

    Gunsmith Near Inverness

    Can anyone recommend a top rate shotgun smith near Inverness? - I've just got a 12 bore Browning that needs a new ejector fitting & want it done competently.
    I want to deal with a proper smith - not a shop who would farm out the work.

    If that is Cromarty Gunsmith - yes - I already had a chat with the man there. He sounds like a good man. Not seen his work yet but have had a good reference from a mate that uses him.
    I may see you in HIS this pm.

    I'd go one further and say that Ian Thompson is a gun and rifle maker of the highest echelon. Ian built a rifle for me in the early nineties and likewise for several friends - have no hesitation, his work is superb.

    Thanks fellas for responses - shotgun is now on its way to Cromarty.
    Tacb, the Browning ejector needs hand fettling to fit - that bit is easy (I'm an engineer- apprentice trained) but the rim cutout has to be machined with the new ejector fitted to the barrel with a special cutter & I don't have access to one of those. Plus timing of ejectors is a thing I've never done. Best leave it to a specialist!
    I do look forward to meeting the smith at Cromarty - I do like proper rifles & chatting with folks that really know their stuff.

    You will be ok with this guy, in my opinion he's a top gunsmith, did some work on oneof my rifles just last Christmas. A1 job. I'm a trained engineer but leave gunsmithing stuff to the specialists.

    DW58 I'd like to see that rifle in the flesh one day - it really does look the business!
