Shotgun mounting


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi all, I want to hang a decommissioned SxS above my fireplace but can't find nice looking hooks to sit it on, has anyone got any suggestions of how to make them or where to buy them? Cheers

In the pub I worked in years ago, the old muzzle loader was held up with some thing like these but bigger and shaped to the barrels and grip. Basically to stop **** heads trying to pull it off but it looked alright and not too obtrusive

Amazon do a four gun rack, bit pricey.

I've been after one for a while at the right price so I can put the airguns in and fabricate a locking bar so it can go over the stairs, locked up. Fed up of them taking up the cabinet space

Looking at the Amazon one, a good joiner could make one, or if you are handy with Wood Butchering have a go yourself. :good:

Curtain irons used instead of tie backs by posh folk. Known as tied backs you'll need large size.

Obviously mounted the right (or rather wrong) orientation. One at the wrist behind the trigger guard the other maybe six or eight inches back from the muzzle?

That's the answer for me and thanks for everyone's ideas
