    Arrow Parker & Hale Rifles - Birmingham - June 2010

    The company acquired a superb reputation for accuracy, entirely well founded. The quality of the sleeves was such that the claim of improved grouping over some new rifles was not unwarranted. Even now, rifles refurbished in this way half a century ago will perform to a high standard, such was the quality of steel and workmanship. A tired barrel could be brought back to very useful life with a significant saving over the cost of a total replacement.

    The place is a hive of history, the Vale Onslow of Firearms. It is simply an amazing factory and another lost business from what made the City world famous!

    20) The only other place I have seen so many guns in such a small room is when the police parade guns captured by gangs or the stock piles of guns the IRA decommissioned!

    I think the owner went into hospital and it was handed down to his son but it was closed in 2007.

    Westley Richards still makes guns in Birmingham, they recently moved from Selly Oak into the Gun Quarter in the City centre into a brand new specially built building.
