ACTION WORK
Around Christmas, I was given a Perazzi case, with the repair label saying "clean thoroughly". It did not prepare me for what I found inside.

If you have a younger shooter who is still growing, a lady with a long neck or high cheekbones, or indeed anyone with a none average shape.

STOCK WORK
Ok! This is where things can get complicated. Apart from the usual cracks, dents, chips etc.there is also re‐finishing, re‐chequering and, of course, fitting, and it is here I will start.

TIM GREENWOOD GUNSMITHS
NOW OPEN IN THE WEST MIDLANDS

Hi everyone!

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.

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.

INTRODUCTION

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.

Tim.
