Horton & Sons

Gun and Rifle Specialists

We are proud of our long heritage and historical influence within the gun trade in both Birmingham and Glasgow. Many in the trade still perceive us to be a Scottish Gun maker, despite us having only been resident in the city for a mere sixty nine years of our two hundred and seventy year history. Amongst these pages you'll find our new Horton gun models, our remanufactured and refurbished stock of Holland & Holland, Purdey, Boss & Co and many more quality brands and details about our industry leading gun repair services which we provide to both trade and public.

Game fishing rods and reel manufacturers

Horton & Sons first manufactured a wide range of supreme quality game fishing tackle, including rods and reels back in the late 19th Century. Our first tackle catalogue was produced in 1885 and included a vast array of primary tackle, lures, lines and accessories for the adventurous game angler.

Once again we have bought back into manufacture a concise and select range of supreme quality fishing tackle, updated for the 21st Century game fishing angler.
