YP & Son Stock Makers

Since 1989

Stock makers, suppliers of walnut wood blanks, and traders of high quality hunting shotguns and rifles. Specialists in English Sidelocks, Over & Unders, and Hammer Guns. We also sell used shotguns and offer servicing, repairs, restoration and engraving.

Restocking

No matter the type of shotgun - boxlock, sidelock or hammer gun, we offer you fully bespoke manufacturing of gunstocks based on your measurements. To achieve the desired quality, we begin by working with you to select the most suitable piece of naturally-dried Turkish walnut - of which we hold large amounts of stock. Once you’ve chosen a blank, we carefully check it to ensure there are no defects and then proceed to make your stock. We pay great attention to every single detail. The final step is to fully showcase the beauty of the wood which we achieve using a traditional English oil finish.

One of the risks associated with buying a beautiful Turkish walnut blank is the misfortune of taking it to a stockmaker only for them to discover cracks inside or other defects, thereby rendering the blank useless and ultimately wasting your money. We at YP & Son stock over 300 blanks of naturally-dried Turkish walnut. Once you’ve selected your blank, even if we discover a defect during the process, we are able to immediately replace it with another of the same grade and similar pattern, without any additional charge. Furthermore, we have a guaranteed 3 months lead time.

Restoration & Finishing

Even if the stock or fore-end of your shotgun are in less than perfect condition, a professionally carried out restoration will bring it back to its former beauty. YP & Son offer you re-finishing, re-checkering, oval replacement (engraving of initials optional) or placing of one if your shotgun doesn’t have it. Re-engraving most often is linked to annealing and hardening which carries risks of bending and even cracking, although this can be avoided. With the help of a pneumatic assisted engraving tool, stereo microscope and gravers made of special grade tungsten carbide, we can restore the engraving on hammers, actions and locks without annealing. Please keep in mind that some shotguns are too hard and cannot be done without annealing.
