Vintage Guns was founded in 2005 by shooting writer and vintage British firearms expert Diggory Hadoke to provide specialist services to the collector and user of British sporting guns.
The company was incorporated in 2013 and became the sole UK agent for London gun-maker John Rigby & Co. in 2015.
Quite simply, Vintage Guns Ltd is an independent ‘one stop shop’ for the British gun enthusiast. We specialse in advising international collectors on private and auction purchases in the UK, thereby avoiding expensive mistakes in this risky but rewarding venture.
We can arrange export sales worldwide through our shipping agent, HGSS.
We build a small number of new ‘best’ side-locks each year, to order. We also operate our popular Full Project Management scheme for gun restoration; bringing your gun back to the very best condition possible.
Our inventory of English guns is extensive and constantly updating
We are always interested in buying good quality British sporting guns, either individual guns or entire collections, in any condition.
Vintage Guns Ltd is a member of the Gun Trade Association and the Federation of Small Businesses.
