The T-Bones Workbench


T-bone Shipwrighting has focused on vintage service rifle optimisation, through the contract manufacturing of modern replacement barrels, the procurement of commercially available replacement barrels and the gunsmithing to install these barrels, maintain, restore or customize the rifles and optimize their function for whatever purpose. In addition to this, we order barrels and blanks to customer specification from Lothar Walther Germany, airfreighted on a quarterly basis and are doing the same from the USA for any products you care to specify.




While service rifle services remains a focus, we regularly install sporting rifle and target rifle barrels and are very keen to service these requirements. Checkout the Shop to see our current significant inventory of sporting and target rifle barrels and blanks, of will have a larger range available soon.


Our order of custom Lothar Walther barrels due in late April is now open, closing early -mid March, so get your orders or quotation requests in. Note that if you have a custom chambering requirement, this lead time allows for reamers to made to spec prior to the barrels arrival. Email for details and pricing.


Imports from the US will be processed and dispatched every 2 months, the next closing 31 March. The aim is to get the lead times down to 8-16 weeks depending on where you are in the order cycle.


We are happy to export all products to any countries where export permission is granted. Canada and NZ are a piece of cake, and at no additional cost except the postage on barrels.
