Gun Fitting

Gun Fitting

At Longthorne we perform a gun fit like no other.   We do this at our factory in Northampton, England and this is included when you purchase a sideplated trigger plate model or a bespoke true sidelock model.  We do the fitting once your stock blank is roughly machined and headed up (this means that we can fit an 'action' to it).

The fitting usually takes 1.5 to 2.5 hours and during that time your stock blank will be hand shaped to ensure that when you mount your gun, the point of aim and the point of impact should coincide.  Careful consideration is given to the length of the grip and diameter of the wrist, trigger finger positioning, comb height and cast.

When you attend your gun fit we recommend you bring with you the shooting garment you would usually wear.

The stock is tailored to your particular discipline whether this be game shooting, sporting, or trap.

This is usually carried out by James Longthorne Stewart (a fully qualified Grade 1 CPSA Instructor)or a qualified member of staff.
