Business Description
BUSINESS
The business was founded by the current owner in 1972 after he identified a gap in the market and has been running the business successfully and lucratively since then. The turnover has tailed off considerably during the last few years, due to the owners advancing age and health issues. The owner is reluctantly selling due to his desire to enjoy a well-earned retirement.

The business is a niche one specialising in gun repairs, mainly barrel work and renovation but excluding stock repairs to shotguns and rifles.

The business derives its work from referrals from gun shops and also advertises in specialist magazines such as ‘Gun Digest’ and ‘Countryman’s Weekly’.

The sale includes all the unique tools and specialist equipment to carry out the trade. The vendor is also prepared to offer training so that this can be an ideal opportunity for someone with basic DIY skills or an engineering or mechanical background to run their own successful business with little or no competition locally.

The current owner would wish to see the business that he is passionate about continue in the hands of an ambitious new owner who can take it to the next level. Offering his expertise and knowledge after running the business for over 40 years.

A new owner would need a small, secure workshop or industrial unit to house the business. The purchaser would be responsible for arranging their own insurances and would need to apply for a RFD (Registered Firearms Dealer) licence.
