Elderkin & Son of Spalding

Gunmakers and Country Clothing outfitters of Lincolnshire

More Than 100 Years Combined Experience.
Established in 1880.

Welcome to Elderkin & Son (Gunmakers) Ltd

We are a local family firm, established in Spalding in 1880, priding ourselves on good traditional quality service, one to one care, and attention to detail. Being such a traditional company, guns and not computers are our forte. Our website is therefore not always as up-to-date with photographs and current stock as we would like. So please do not hesitate to contact us if you are looking for anything special or individual to suit your shooting or country lifestyle needs.

One of the largest in-house gunsmiths in the United Kingdom

Established in 1880 we are purveyors of Best English, sporting, competition shotguns. We stock a wide range of country clothing, footwear and accessories for all your lifestyle needs. Steeped in both family tradition and time-honored practices our reputation has been thoroughly earned by providing a service equal to the very best establishments in London, but not at metropolitan prices.
