"Hi, I finally took possession of it last Friday. The gun looks really great and I'm very pleased with it thanks. The gun slip is also much better made than I expected and is far superior to anything I've seen in the gun shops so far. Branthwaites were really attentive during the whole process and made every effort to keep me informed about progress with the licence application and the arrangements for shipping the gun. The gun arrived safely having been insured and well packed. I would have no hesitation in using Branthwaites again for any future purchases. Regards," Mel Wallwork - Export (New Zealand)
