It’s the job that many of us put off, sometimes for weeks, a few for months, a handful for several seasons. John Spary and Joe Hocking are gunsmiths: the ones who get to clean, check, repair and occasionally pick up the pieces of our guns. They explain what goes into a gun service, plus how to treat your gun throughout the year in order to reduce your service bill.   

John and Joe run Duchy Gunsmith in Cornwall. Visit
