Boxall & Edmiston Gun Makers
At Boxall & Edmiston we make truly British bespoke shotguns. Our family owned business is the coming together of two gunmaking dynasties and it was no small decision to commit our surname to the company.
Many "new" gunmakers choose to resurrect gunmaker names of yesteryear, to give the impression of heritage and artisan skill, our ethos was quite different. We have created a range of products using a blend of modern technology and the art of British gunmaking and felt it appropriate to start something new.
Our products span both old and new world with a range of 12 bore side by sides complimented by an ever growing family of over and unders in 12, 16, 20 and soon 28 bore. The over and unders are available in both round action form and a sideplated model, giving clients every opportunity to create their perfect gun.
A shotgun, is a tool first and foremost and it must fulfil its purpose and offer every advantage to its owner in the field. A gun is also a thing of beauty to be admired and the artistry that goes into every model cannot be negated.
At Boxall & Edmiston, we achieve every possible advantage for our clients by creating them an entirely bespoke shotgun, built to fit them physically, whilst complimenting their chosen shooting discipline.
Alongside the physical fitting of the gun we offer a myriad of customisations that will make you proud to own a Boxall & Edmiston. Bespoke engraving, such as your dog or game scenes, bespoke thumb pieces, gold inlay and many more, all compliment your gun and make it unique to you.
You can "build your gun" on screen using our revolutionary online tool, this will take you through all the bespoke options available for the range of 12 bores. Click here or the "build your gun" link at the top of the page.
2015 saw the completion of our 100th gun and this emphasises the unique nature of those in production. With over 44 million combinations (not including stock dimensions), every gun is unique and our team of craftsmen and engineers can only produce a limited number annually as the majority of components are specifically created for each client.
At Boxall & Edmiston we are working hard to pass on the knowledge of gunmaking with an apprenticeship scheme, two second generation gunsmiths and plans for an academy in the works. These efforts are in no small part supported by our clients and the gun trade as a whole and we will continue to work tirelessly to ensure gunmaking remains a staple of British craftsmanship and ingenuity.
We are a family of engineers and gunmakers who thoroughly enjoy creating these unique pieces of art. The challenges, the unique requests (and there have been many), the joy of the clients first day shooting, all contribute to what can only be described as a unique industry and one we love and are proud to be a part of.
