History Certificates

Since we were founded in 1814, we’ve been numbering and recording our guns and rifles with detailed accounts of the clients they were made for. While not all of those records have survived, we’re proud to continue to record the heritage of each gun, any alterations made, and changes of ownership.

If you’re interested in tracing the history of your gun, our records are organised around its serial number. Depending upon the period we can provide a complete record of how your gun was originally completed, as well as any additional notes. This is supplied as a two-page history certificate, which is emailed as a pdf document. The first page provides a transcript of the main dimensions and details of the gun as it was originally completed, together with information on subsequent alterations and owners where recorded. The second page is a photograph of the original Dimension Book entry. Please note that, due to our data protection policy, we’re unable to provide the names of owners within the last fifty years.
