About Ivythorn Sporting

The above, to me, sum up the part that I should play as the link between my customers and their needs... It is crucially important to me that people are treated properly. I don't have a business without customers...

I trade under the name of Ivythorn Sporting (founded 1999), Registered Firearms Dealer Avon & Somerset 1505.

The company stocks and supplies new and second-hand Rifles, Shotguns, Sound moderators, Optics, and selected accessories.

I do not operate a conventional full-time retail premises but prefer to offer all clients my time and expertise on an informed and relaxed one to one basis, which is why we are appointment only.

I have used guns and rifles almost daily for 35 years and have 25 years experience of firearms sales, tuition, gun-fit and attending properly to customer needs.
All of my stock can be viewed on site without obligation, and anything second-hand may also be tested on our range/clay grounds, again, with no pressure to purchase; but please note that all on-site business is STRICTLY BY APPOINTMENT-ONLY, from Monday to Saturday, inclusive.
You can view the majority of my current stock by following the link to Guntrader.

About our guns

We offer a wide range of guns and rifles, optics and moderators, and they all have two things in common; quality and value-for-money. I won't sell anything which I consider to be below standard.

Things to consider when buying a Sauer

Ivythorn Sporting is the sole appointed Sauer 'Master Dealer' for Great Britain; in association with the official UK distributor, Garlands Ltd.
As such, we carry a display of 20 new Sauer continually, with representative rifles across the Sauer model range.

Ivythorn has a direct liason with the Sauer Factory, in Isny, Southern Germany, and as such can provide fast and accurate information and specification.

Our strong relationship with Sauer also means we can facilitate a visit to the Factory itself, for those who entertain choosing a high-grade Sauer rifle;
A stunning stock and fore-end perhaps, or maybe your own bespoke engraving? Many options are possible from 'Sauer Individual'...

We have excellent knowledge of the product.

You can test a demonstrator Sauer rifle at Ivythorn, without obligation, and can also leave with your new rifle professionally assembled, zeroed, and ready to use...

Whether it be a Sauer, or any other brand, Ivythorn Sporting sell on quality and depth of service, not just price, so you can be assured of being taken care of in a professional and courteous manner.

What we also offer

Ivythorn Sportings' range and clay grounds enable us to provide high quality tuition and corporate entertainment, and our 'exclusive sole occupancy' for no extra cost policy means our practice facility for both clays and rifle is always popular. All this in a safe, informal, and frankly stunning location...
