TIM GREENWOOD GUNSMITHS
NOW OPEN IN THE
Well, after 3 months of very hard work and a few setbacks, I am finally open for business in the West Midlands, as stated previously near a small town called Market Drayton in a village called Tern Hill.
My new phone number is on the website for you to call for a chat and perhaps make an appointment for you to come and see me. My new workshop has all of my tools and machinery finally under one roof with plenty of room to “swing a gun” let alone a cat, unlike my old place where swinging a mouse would have been difficult!
Work is already starting to flood in, due to the queue of people who have been patiently waiting for me to re-open, so please accept my thanks for your forbearance.
I look forward to meeting you all soon.
Laura sets sights on life as a gunsmith - Shropshire Star
Laura is training to be a gunsmith at her family business Greenwood Gunsmiths near Market Drayton, Shropshire.
Whether you shoot a Perazzi, Beretta, Browning, or your favourite old boxlock or sidelock, if it’s looking tired or a bit loose, it is always cheaper to renovate than replace. I offer a free quotation for all your gunsmithing requirements.
A pair of Stephen Grant, side opening sidelocks, late 19th century. Recently renovated by myself, and others. Please see project gallery for further details.
My name is Tim Greenwood, and I have been a gunsmith for the last 35 years. I live in the West Midlands and undertake action, stock and barrel work in my fully equipped workshop for both private individuals and the trade.

Most of my life has been spent in the South East of England, working for retailers and individuals, including some of the UK’s top shots from all over Britain including Northern Ireland. With my recent move to the West Midlands I finally have a workshop more suited to my business, with space to expand the services I can offer to all of the shooting fraternity.
Over the last 35 years, I have been surprised by the lack of information available to shooters about gunsmiths and the services they can offer, hence this website and my monthly articles in Clay Shooting Magazine.
As you can see, there are different banners down the right hand side of the page and across the top. Please take the time to click on these and explore, and, if there is anything else that you would like to know, please leave me a message on my contact page, or phone me if you would like me to undertake some work for you.
This website is very much a “Work in progress”, which I will update as frequently as possible. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy putting it all together.
