Boxall & Edmiston celebrate their 100th gun!
The completion of the 100th gun is a momentous
achievement for the small Shropshire based team as many hundreds of man hours
and machine time go into the crafting of each model.
The milestone has been celebrated in a number of ways. On
the 20th August, colleagues from the British gun trade joined the Boxall &
Edmiston team at the workshop in Shropshire for a tour. The group then enjoyed
a day's simulated game shooting provided by Shropshire simulated game and
hosted at the stunning Leighton shooting Estate.
The 100th gun to be crafted is a sideplated, 20 bore with 32"
barrels, Teague multi-chokes, an exhibition stock, leather covered pad, gold
oval and full-scroll engraving. The gun is a stunning example of the artistry
produced at the Boxall & Edmiston workshop and it is with great pride that the
team of craftsmen, both internally and around Britain, have reached this
