J. Roberts & Son, Gunmakers, UK


The Company was founded in 1950 by my father, Joseph Roberts. I joined the firm in 1959 and by the mid 1970's as well as dealing in second-hand guns and rifles, we started producing fine new shotguns and rifles. In 1984 we amalgamated with John Rigby & Co, Britain's longest established gun and rifle makers and assembled our own team of gunsmiths.

By 1990 we were producing 40 guns per year, specialising in large calibre double-barrelled and bolt action rifles, some stalking rifles and 'best' shotguns. In 1997 the Rigby name was sold to a US gunmaker whilst we continued to produce fine guns under the J Roberts & Son brand for our traditional big-game hunting and game shooting market. In 2000 we acquired the sole manufacturing rights for WJ Jeffery & Co, one of Britain's most innovative gunmakers, having introduced the most popular big-game calibres such as .404 and .500 Jeffery.

As well as producing a full range of new guns and rifles, we are sole UK agents for Arrizabalaga, Spain's finest gunmaker. We are also main distributors of Battista Rizzini, one of Italy's most renowned gunmakers, specialising in over and under guns and double barrelled rifles. We also have a wide selection of second hand English guns and rifles and the best in used Continental guns of all types.

We aim to supply the finest sporting guns and rifles available in the world today. Please take time to explore our web-site or, better still, visit our London shop which enjoys private off-street parking...

Guns and rifles

We are experts in making a variety of shotguns and rifles in our own workshops. Where outworkers are used, they are carefully selected for their particular expertise and will have previously served with Purdey's, Holland & Holland or ourselves.

A new J. Roberts or W J Jeffery bolt action rifle will take about 6 months to make, a shotgun around 18 months, and a double barrel rifle approximately 2 years.

We stock a wide selection of second-hand shotguns and rifles, including what we believe to be the best range of big-game hunting rifles in London. We are specialist stockists of used fine English guns, including antique and vintage guns, specialising in the Rigby name.

For 25 years, J. Roberts & Son (Gunmakers) Ltd have been sole UK agents for Pedro Arrizabalaga - considered by experts to be Spain's finest gunmaker. Their shotguns - a range designed specifically for the British market - are manufactured in Spain and imported for hand-finishing by us.

Arrizabalaga guns are beautifully hand built in the style of classic British game guns. Exquisitely engraved, they incorporate the features most practical and popular for British game shooting. We are able to offer all the features for which the British best guns have become renowned, such as self-opening actions, sprung front triggers, game ribs, plus the superior handling quality of an English best gun. Stocked in finest Turkish walnut, built to your measurements and barrel specifications in 10-14 months.

These guns represent the finest value in a British-design best game gun available today.

We are also the main distributor for Battista Rizzini, English style, modestly priced over and under shotguns of superb quality and reliability, with English gun handling characteristics.
