About Us

We are a registered firearms dealer based in North Herts. Fine Guns has been set up by Mr Ben Laidlaw to supply the shooting community with fine British Sporting Shotguns\and a service to keep these historic works of art in the field. Ben has worked along side his father as a pigeon guide and game shoot organiser for many years and has been shooting since the age of 10 . Ben also runs a bespoke Carpentry & Construction business.

British Shotguns and especially the London Sidelock are the finest made. At the turn of the 1900s the London gun was at the peek of perfection. At that time before the great war of 1914 the gun trade was thriving and British gun makers were in fierce competition. These British gun makers set the standard for Best Guns, to this day a “London Best” is treasured as the epitome of the gun makers art. This was a time when best quality was the only option much like a grand victorian house. These timeless guns are infact industrial artifacts.

The British guns of today are quite different with a very large percentage being made overseas for the purpose of cutting costs, these guns are then imported into the UK and marked up and finished as a British gun. There are of course the top tier that remain totally British.
