Official re-opening of John Dickson & Son

In line with current Scottish government guidance, our business will officially re-open in a normal operating capacity on Monday 26th April 2021. We will be initially working a reduced week, the shop only open on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, 9am to 5pm but will look to review this once we can gauge customer attendance of our site in Dunkeld.

May we please remind you that:

You must call ahead if there is something specific you require, especially when purchasing ammunition.

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

It is strictly one customer at a time in the shop and we will be observing a 2-metre social distancing rule with the customer at all times. 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.

If we can assist with anything on the days we are closed, you can contact us here

Vintage Gun Inventory Update

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

We continue to have a heavy focus on the names we own but also quality Scottish guns generally. Three particular guns of interest this month are all boxlock's - a J. R. Gow & Sons of Dundee, an Alex Martin and a J. Dickson & Son. All guns we offer for sale have been through the workshop and meticulously prepared for sale by our team of gunmakers.

We continue to try and source the best examples of Scottish guns but if there is something specific you are looking for or you wish to move your vintage gun on, then please get in contact here
