Vintage Gun Inventory Update

Our vintage gun inventory page is updated regularly, which you can view here.

Two particular guns of interest this month are a rare and unique 16 gauge Round-Action and an unusual lightweight single-trigger 12 gauge Round-Action.  We also have two refurbished Dickson 12 gauge boxlocks, one an extractor and the other an ejector, which will be listed later this week.


In the Workshop

We have a great selection of fine Scottish boxlock ejector guns going through the workshop in preparation for sale from the likes of J. Dickson and Son, J. MacNaughton & Sons, Alex Martin, J. R. Gow of Dundee, P. D. Malloch of Perth, D. B. Crockart of Perth and a rare and interesting J. D. Dougall of Glasgow with pretty 30in damascus barrels with 70mm chambers. 

We also have two interesting boxlock non-ejector guns coming through from McCririck & Son of Ayr and McColl & Fraser of Dunfermline. Both guns making ideal lightweight walked-up game guns where quick cartridge ejection is not required. 

If you are interested in any of the above, please get in touch with us here

Dickson Owners Club Denmark Appointment

The DOC now has representation in Denmark through our friends at Game & Gun, a prestigious gun shop in the town of Karise, just south of Copenhagen, which has an in-house gunsmithing service to support your vintage Dickson gun. We look forward to running a DOC event there in 2021. 

Dickson Owners Club USA Autumn Event

Delaney & Sons will be hosting an Autumn gathering of DOC members on October 17th 2020 at First Mine Run Gun Club, MD. This is a great opportunity for meeting up with other Dickson owners for a fun afternoon of shooting, food and sharing our passion over the guns of Scotland's oldest gunmaker. There may still be some room to attend this event, find out by emailing them here.

The Delaney's have also been working very hard to establish the Dickson merchandise distribution in the USA, they now have our whisky glasses, hats and cleaning clothes for sale. Place your order with Delaney & Sons by emailing them here.  DOC members receive a 10% discount on all Dickson branded items.

COVID-19 update

We continue to work within the latest government guidance issued by both the UK and Scottish government to ensure both our staff and customers are as safe as possible whilst on our premises. 

May we please remind you that:

There will be no public access to the workshop. We will only be available to meet with customers through the main shop.

If you do come into the shop, we will be observing a 2-metre social distancing rule with the customer at all times and hand sanitiser will be available. All staff will have hand sanitiser, wipes and masks to hand.

Please bring a mask as it is mandatory to wear it - if you forget it, we will happily provide one.
