History is our source of inspiration

Brown Bess Carbine
Our company is the result of the foresight of a veteran re-enactor realising his dream!
Unable to find a good selection of weaponry with consistent quality, he started out exploring the possibility of redressing the balance by hand-making matchlock muskets of the 17th century. 
Since then our portfolio has grown a great deal and we can now include Cannons, Swivel guns, Wall guns and Rampart guns to our range as well.
Our weaponry can be found in many parts of the UK , Holland, Germany, New Zealand, Switzerland, Austria, Japan, Italy, Spain, Poland, Portugal, Sweden, Denmark, Czech Republic, Belgium, USA and Australia
If you can't see what you want, it doesn't necessarily mean we don't make it, it means no-one has asked us yet! So get in touch and we can discuss your bespoke requirements in further detail.
