My name is Andrew Iosson and I am the Managing Director of Fine Sporting Collectables Ltd.
I have collected sporting guns and related accessories for over 40 years and have been a fulltime dealer in fine antique guns and their accessories since 2001. I formed the limited company in 2003 for internet sales following the establishment of my web site at www.finesportingcollectablesltd.co.uk
I exhibit at all the major antique arms fairs in the UK, including London (Earls Court), Birmingham, Bristol, Bisley and Hertsmere and travel all over the UK to source new pieces and meet with fellow collectors and dealers to trade items.
I am keen to buy and offer sleepy items with little or no restoration and tend not to clean up stock for sale so that the purchaser has the pleasure of cleaning to the particular point at which they are happy with the appearance of the item. I have found this point is a fairly personal thing and varies considerably between collectors.
I am very keen to buy good pieces – either guns or accessories and I am very happy to take items in part exchange or swap.
United Kingdom (UK)
The cost of shipping is in addition to the quoted price of any item but is charged at cost and a quotation can be given on request. All accessories can be easily shipped worldwide.
Antique guns can be shipped anywhere in the UK.
Shipping of antique guns overseas is possible but is expensive as they cannot be sent via the normal postal system and special carriers have to be used.
Payment can be made by cheque, bank transfer or Paypal (where allowed by Paypal).
