If you are looking for a gunsmith whose knowledge is second to none, professional, and likes to have incredible customer service; then look no further.

“From initial contact to handover, Gareth has been there every step of the way, every question answered ( don’t be scared to ask everyone has to start somewhere) with an honest helpful approach that’s about your needs and not making money whatever your gun knowledge maybe. You are not made to feel out of place.

From quotes to products ordered and then built on site with the confidence and assurance of someone that is a true craftsman who takes great pride in their work and ensures that you, the customer, gets exactly what they want.  Backed up with a one-to-one handover when picking up your purchase it is ensured that you have all the practical knowledge and advice you will need and no concerns before leaving, knowing they are only ever a phone call away if you need them.

In this day and age, they are a rare jewel and I wouldn’t recommend you go anywhere else for all of your gun needs.”

The job they did fitting my Rizzini to me was nothing short of excellent

“The service I received from Gareth and the team at Rule’s was absolutely first-class – a perfect blend of friendliness and professionalism. Their knowledge and craftsmanship is second to none, and the job they did fitting my Rizzini to me was nothing short of excellent.

As someone who shoots rifles most of the time, having a properly fitted shotgun makes it so much easier when I switch between disciplines. It’s certainly one less thing for me to worry about when tackling challenging targets on my crop protection rounds.”

It Has Been a Pleasure Dealing With A.W. Rule & Son

A quick note to say thank you again for the restocking work on my Stephen Grant. The craftsmanship of the end product speaks for itself and was backed up by excellent service throughout from my initial enquiry to collection of the finished job. The willingness and enthusiasm with which you shared your time and knowledge during calls, emails and gun fitting session was much appreciated, as was your advice on materials and finishes appropriate to my gun. It has been a pleasure dealing with A.W. Rule & Son and I recommend your services without hesitation.

Mr R. B

Excellent Service

Bought a nice little Rizzini 16 bore from A.W. Rule. Charming gunroom with some beautiful guns. Excellent service. Would recommend

Workmanship & Finish Achieved is Second to None

Thank you again for doing such a professional job making my new crossover stock for my Miroku over & under. The workmanship & finish is second to none. The gun is handling & shooting superbly.

I’m very happy with the quality of service provided

Having had one stock crafted from scratch and three others modified and fitted, one by Anthony and the others by Gareth I can say I’m very happy with the quality of service provided. They have a great choice of woods and in my case were able to match stock and forend beautifully. Gareth is also stocking a very good cartridge range including his own branded Vanquish and Vanquish Extreme in standard game loads of 30 and 32 gr 5s and 6s – excellent performance and hard hitting shells.

Highly professional

Excellent service as always. Highly professional and nothing’s too much trouble for Gareth. Superb customer service from a passionate and knowledgeable gentleman.
Service was first class and the result superb

What a great place. Thanks to Gareth and Steve for their patience and time in finding and fitting a used gun for me. Service was first class and the result superb. Any newbies looking for advice and equipment should give Rules a call. Gareth’s coffee was good too!!

I couldn’t be happier with the whole experience

I felt I had outgrown my gun and not wishing to replace it I needed a professional to give me some guidance. I made an appointment to meet Gareth and I couldn’t be happier with the whole experience. With no wish to take unnecessary money from me, a minor adjustment was made and my gun feels new and comfortable again. Continuity of the mount is back. I will be sure to getting all friends without (and some with) a regular gunsmith to go and see them. I think I’ll be directing next years cartridge purchase from them too. Highly recommended.

Incredibly knowledgeable and helpful

Had a gun fit done this morning Gareth was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. can’t wait to see my finished gun.

A fantastic service having my gun fitted

A fantastic service having my gun fitted. The work done on my gun is beautiful. I would highly recommend Gareth and Steve to anyone.

Mrs M.B

What an amazing experience.

What an amazing experience having my gun fit. Really helped me understand why I was finding it difficult to transfer my weight forward onto my left leg and why my back had been aching. Very professional, highly knowledgeable and the results were amazing. Shot the best I ever have following my alterations. Highly recommend.

Miss L.M

Friendly and really informative

Just purchased a new gun,excellent customer service friendly really informative and professional service will be making many more return visits.


Me and my brother have just left the shop. Both new to the sport and waiting on our shotgun licences. Was recommended to go to this shop so we did. And we where not disappointed at all. We met Gareth and he was so helpful. Told us everything we wanted to know and more. As soon as we get our licences through we will be coming straight back and getting our first gun and everything we need to enjoy the sport and will definitely continue on visiting the shop and services they provide.

A Warm and Courteous Welcome
The time has come to close my shooting days after so very many years. This short note is to thank you for the faultless service you have given me over a long period of time not just in servicing and supplying my guns, but in making each visit a thing to look forward to. Always in your busy day you have found time to give me a warm welcome and courteous welcome, together with the sound advice of a deeply knowledgeable professional, indeed it may not be too extreme to say that I shall miss my visits to you rather.

Boss 20g OU
Mr Rule. I am delighted with the new stock and find it hard to believe how closely matched it is to the original. Already much admired by many of my friends!

Absolutely Thrilled!
I am absolutely thrilled with the transformation you have achieved in my shooting.. The overhead bird is now in serious trouble again!

I would highly recommend them
A big thank you to A.W.Rule & Son Gun makers, after years of shooting various different shotguns, lessons, being told to shoot left handed and then right handed, missing a lot, and almost giving up! I went to A.W.Rule & Son for some help and advice. They found a gun that suits me and fitted it to my measurements….now I am shooting much better and enjoying it so much more. I would highly recommend them and i will always go back to them in the future.

Huge amount of knowledge
I visited A.W. Rule & Son Gunmakers for the first time recently to inquire about Shotgun Cartridges, and I just wanted to say how impressed I was with the service and huge amount of knowledge. They where more than happy to spend time with me, nothing was to much trouble. I will definitely be back again soon!

Express my pleasure and satisfaction
Just a quick note to express my pleasure and satisfaction with the restocking and overhauling of my Purdey Shotgun. It gives me more pleasure to look at, handle and of course own a superb piece of workmanship. Thank You

How delighted I am with the result
I would Just like to say how delighted I am with the result, the workmanship is outstanding and it has been done in a manner that is pleasingly sympathetic to the gun.

Superb Shop
Friendly, helpful and knowledgeable staff.

What fantastic service
Just have to say what fantastic service we had at Rule’s they took the time to size us up for our guns and showed real customer service, and even let us haggle over the price, 5 start treatment that means we will be back time and time again, thank you very much.

Nothing is too much trouble
For good old fashioned customer service, try this Gunsmith/Gunshop, nothing is too much trouble and you really get the feeling that they want you as a long term client, not just trying to sell you a gun and grabbing your money!

A thoroughly great experience
I had one of my guns serviced, I was fitted with their try gun up and bought another. A thoroughly great experience. I will definitely recommend their services to others. The customer service was excellent and I will certainly be back.
