Can your gun safely shoot steel, what can you do if it can’t?

Questions surrounding how guns are made, how they work and how they’re repaired are constantly on our minds and now new questions are arising concerning non lead cartridges and if our guns are suitable for them. So, on Friday 30th July along with the gunsmiths of Mid-counties blacking in Litchfield, we will be putting on an event where you can come along and see the gun making process and how they are repaired.

If you have concerns about your own gun then bring it along and we can check what type of steel it can safely shoot, we will also inform you what options you have if it cant shoot steel.

10 places available.

Cost: £20 for BASC members / £25 for non members
