Meet Essex Firearms Supplies – a family-run shop that is definitely on the up!

Essex Firearms Supplies is a newly opened, family-run gun shop, with the primary aim of transcending 'The Airgun Experience' into the 21st century. Located on Curtis Farm - just off Fobbing High Road, opposite the White Lion pub - the shop specialises in the vintage and contemporary, high-end and affordable, collectable and practical, and just about everything else in between.

We are a family-orientated business and offer an unparalleled level of commitment to our customers because we know first-hand how special it is to have a retailer you can rely on and trust. Ranging from realistic air pistols to competition rifles, we house an extensive and ever-growing collection of guns, further consolidating our position as a reliable, safe and forward-looking shop. We endeavour to leave every customer completely satisfied with their purchase and shopping experience. Opening hours are: Monday to Friday, 10am-5pm; Saturday 10am to1pm, and then Sunday by appointment only. Appointments can be arranged outside of opening hours also.

All the essentials

During your visit, you will be under the care of either David or Ben Sargeant, the father-son duo who run the shop. Between them, they have years of hunting and shooting experience - and enthusiasm - so they are more than able to advise new and experienced shooters alike.

Essex Firearm Supplies specialise in brands such as Weihrauch, Remington, Walther, Kral and Umarex and the owners also possess an advanced knowledge of Air Arms and BSA airguns should you need any help or advice with your gun. Although it's a small shop, and still in a formative process, it stocks all the essentials needed to maintain your gun, as well as luggage, ammunition and accessories that will make your shooting experience as convenient, productive and enjoyable as possible.

Friendly and reliable

The inspiration to open a local, friendly and reliable gun shop was drawn from many factors, but most importantly, the prospect of creating an establishment where the love of shooting as a sport was unparalleled and always at the forefront. It can be very intimidating for a new shooter to walk into a shop and ask questions - we've all been there - and EFS prides itself on spreading the positivity of shooting, and drawing more people into the sport.

Most Read

Shooting Kits have been introduced, to build a customer an 'all you need' kit to accompany their gun purchase. Kits vary from the esteemed Weihrauch HW100, to the Remington Sabre TH - allowing for new shooters to grab a bargain on equipment that would normally be expensive. Furthermore, we run a loyalty scheme; for every £100 spent online or in store, you receive a stamp that entitles you to £5 of store credit to go towards ammunition or accessories. You can save them up to make that one big purchase easier. Come on over - we'd love to see you!
