What better formula could there be for making the ultimate shotgun, than to combine the very best the modern world has to offer by way of material and technology with traditional methodology and classic English shotgun design, at Longthorne Gunmakers we have done exactly that!!

The startling result is a gun made with the precision and accuracy of a Swiss watch, which has the strength to withstand not only steel proof but ‘Magnum’ steel proof, the highest level of proof achievable in the UK today (and we believe a UK first on 12 bore shotguns), and amazingly with negligible felt recoil and muzzle flip!!

How is this achieved, one might ask, It’s all in the barrel technology. Our barrels are manufactured from a solid block of steel, including the mono block which enables us manufacture perfectly straight barrels without the distortion and metal softening problems of many conventionally made barrels’. This same cutting edge technology also ensures that our guns have a consistent point of aim and improved pattern over a greater distance.

We are a 100% English owned family company and we manufacture every part of our guns in house and tailored to our Clients requirements

Testimonials I gave the Longthorne a bit more of a workout yesterday. We had 251 birds, mostly Duck and some Partridge with 6 guns mostly using 32grm steel 4 shot. Despite the gun only weighing 7lb 3oz, it just does not seem to have the recoil or heat up like any other gun I have used. 30 shots in about 3 minutes on one Duck drive would have given me aching shoulder and a very hot gun with my old gun. I cannot thanks Jim and Elaine enough for the Huge amount of time and effort they have put into producing such a wonderful Gun. - Client I.T
