Billets to Barrels

For Longthorne Gunmakers it’s about making better barrels

In our forthcoming November/December issue, British gun expert and author Douglas Tate explores the rise and expansion of Longthorne Gunmakers. He writes: “James and Elaine Stewart—Longthorne Gunmakers—have wed traditional craft design and new engineering technology to create a vivid post-modern product with a unique character. The Stewarts’ success, which will hinge on a union of Boss-style side studs and racing-car technology, is a romance worth telling.”

The full feature will be posted here after the issue is back from the printer. For now, this video offers a taste of that union of craft and tech.
