How firearms work – one day

In 2017, after a series of requests, two one day courses were created for those who have an interest in firearms and would like to enhance their knowledge. Both courses are being taught at the Burrard Academy classroom, which is based in the Boxall & Edmiston gunmaking facility in Shropshire.
This course will take you from the end of the firearm, explaining choking and barrel configurations, looking at mechanisms and internal systems using Computer Aided Design, (CAD) to explain, ending with details on Walnut and stock dimensions. This course is an opportunity to ask any questions you may have about firearms and know that the team are likely to either have examples to back-up the answer or a CAD model to explain.

This course will be taught by Peter Boxall, former manufacturing Director of Holland & Holland and Proprietor and Managing Director of Boxall & Edmiston gunmakers.

This course is best taken with the How Firearms are made one day course, but it is not necessary to do so.

This course has been scheduled for:

  • 17th March
  • 13th May
  • 7th July
  • 2nd September
  • More dates will be added later in the year
