PRESS RELEASE 02.02.2021

Longthorne Gunmakers have recently completed their trigger plate boxlock range, this has been developed, and made in Great Britain over the past year despite the confines of COVID 19 and incorporates their innovative patented barrels (game or sporting) together with several other features all developed and made in Great Britain including Longthorne chokes (extended and flush), adjustable comb mechanism and recoil pads, and all made in house, a UK first.  

Smooth to shoot with minimal felt recoil and muzzle flip and proofed for superior steel with 3” chambers, corrosion resistant interior components, and adjustable trigger, their ever-expanding range offers a lower cost alternative to their true sidelock models, they come in several styles to suit most tastes and disciplines including several side plated designs which include a fitted stock.
