Bill Blacker London Barrel Maker

The best London gun barrels are built in the traditional way combined with the most modern materials and equipment. While machines were always used when possible, for example, for rifling the barrels, today we use the most modern CNC equipment and CAD design features. Yet, this is combined with all the traditional gun making methods. Filed actions to great precision using the “oil black” method, hand struck barrels, handshaped stocks and checkering, etc. Depending on the model of gun, from 650 man hours to well over 1250 man hours will be involved making it

When one thinks about topend guns and rifles, one tends to think about actions and engraving and stocks.A dazzling piece of walnut or an exquisitely executed game scene is what grabs the eye.The barrels seem to be little more than the black bit on the front.And yet it is the barrels which define the thing as a weapon. Without the barrels a gun is no more than a club; or perhaps a bat. And on closer consideration there is far more to the barrels than a pair of tubes”
