“These forgings, as supplied from Multi-Stroke, have proved consistently to give us an excellent start to this very exacting process.”

Holland & Holland’s shotguns and rifles have been made in London since 1835 and are widely regarded as the finest bespoke sporting guns and rifles in the world.
Hand carved and shaped by highly skilled craftsmen to fit the customer to within a thousandth of an inch, these guns are the benchmark for excellence in the guntrade.

Based in the heart of England, and experts in forging, Multi-Stroke are involved at the start of this highly precise manufacturing process, forging the tubes for double barrel shotguns and riffles. These are then are turned, drilled, bored, honed, milled then brazed together to exacting concentricity and finish requirements.

“These forgings, as supplied from Multi-Stroke, have proved consistently to give us an excellent start to this very exacting process,” explains Holland & Holland’s Technical Design Manager John Sperinck. “We have found Multi-Stroke to be competent and professional together with friendly and helpful staff. We would recommend them to anyone with a need for regular consistent forging supplies.”

Multi-Stroke Director Ian Wright added: “We’re honoured to be trusted by this world class British manufacture, with its long history of excellence, to provide these hot forged components for their guns and rifles.”

Today Holland & Holland use the most modern CNC equipment and CAD design features, combined with all the traditional gun making methods. These techniques include actions filed to great precision using the "oil smoke black" method, hand struck barrels, hand shaped stocks and checkering.  Depending on the model of gun, from 650 man hours to well over 1250 man hours will be involved making it. No part of a Holland & Holland gun is interchangeable, it is always made specially for the gun down to the smallest pin!
