The Devon Gunsmith Diaries concept was conceived by me, Paul Dobson, during lock down. The premise was to be able to perform work without a fully set up gunsmiths workshop, but rather, using just the cottage kitchen table, a few hand tools, some cordless tools, a table vice, and other small DIY tools.

The channel is not specifically intended to be a how to guide, it is mainly for entertainment.

While in the UK gunsmithing must be performed by the licenced gun trade, YouTube is without borders, and if the channel is useful to someone as either entertainment, or indeed helps you to decide if a repair might be possible, then I have been a help to you.
