A Very Happy New Year and Prosperous 2015. A selection of guns from 2014.

2015 brings a new chapter in our gunmaking history. This .470 will be the 1st delivered.

In England we are lucky to enjoy a prolonged holiday at Christmas time, this year the factory closed on the 24th and opens again on January 5th, giving plenty of time to add a layer of winter warmth from the excess food and drink! I hope everyone, wherever you may be also enjoyed a good holiday and Christmas and wish you the very best for the New Year.

One of the comments I received recently, related to there being a great selection of photos on our Instagram account but not so many appearing 'large size' on The Explora. So in an effort to correct that, here is a selection to start the year off.

First though we are headed to Dallas for the Dallas Safari Club convention which starts on the 15th January followed by visits to The Antique Arms show in Las Vegas and the SCI Convention. We will be exhibiting at all three exhibitions and look forward to welcoming all to our stands.

    What can I say Simon:
    I will start with Thank you for the great pictures. They are wonderful to look at... daily. You are much wiser than your years Sir. Nothing could get a guy are gal stirred up more about a gun and the love of great artistry, more than these pictures...in my opinion. It has to be like showing off your children...with the Pride of a Father. I cannot wait meet with you and look at your wares at the Dallas show. Thank you again for effort it takes to keep this site up and running.

    In Christ
    Vance Daigle,

      Indeed! I love to sit back with a cup of early morning coffee, and scroll through the beautiful photos throughout the blog.

    Just want to join to agree, the pictures on Explora are beyond just technically good, we have a real art here, and as we all know, we live in a imagine driven society. Thanks for the awesome selection! :))
    Cheers from Hungary!
