Intermediate end of season servicing is our service for new and existing clients that have not had their shotgun maintained by A.W.Rule & Son Gun Makers Ltd for a long period of time or a gun that is new to ourselves.
In the interest of best practice, A.W.Rule & Son Gun Makers Ltd will offer this level of servicing to clients that have not had their gun serviced or maintained for many years, or typically having just purchased their new gun with no history of its maintenance schedule.
This higher level of servicing allows both parties to have the confidence that the gun has been fully inspected, insuring that the gun is in best working order.
An intermediate end of season service involves the removal all working parts from the stock and forend. A full disassembly of action, locks, triggers, ejector work, and extractors. Each and every working item is hand inspected, removing any rusting or burrs. Hand cleaned using a degreasing agent. The action, lock plates, forend iron and trigger guard are ultrasonically cleaned to remove all dirt and debris from those hard to reach places, even cleaning the engraving. These parts are then ultrasonically cleaned again in a separate ultrasonic bath, this time in fine oil. This insures that every part is oiled for protection and in the best possible condition prior to assembly.
All action pins are tightened as required, heat blued for that traditional look. The firing pins – when necessary – are reshaped and re hardened. Top safety catch re-cut for grip and heat blued. The safety and trigger clearances are checked and regulated as required, the function on the locks and ejectors are tested also.
Upon reassembly, all parts are re greased using age old traditional products, a mixture handed down from generation to generation.
The gun is then test fired at our range using shotgun cartridges suitable for the gun ensuring good detonation by the firing pins.
The barrels are then internally cleaned using cleaning rods and cleaning agents as required. Cleaning the chambers to remove any lead deposits and inspected for signs of damage and rusting. If applicable, multi chokes are removed, cleaned and inspected also.
