Shotguns and other firearms are often exposed to wet and corrosive residues after shooting.
Wear on sears, ejectors and latches all lead to an underperforming gun that may seize up or stop working. Carrs are a Registered Firearms Dealer (RFD) and have been welding gun components since 2000.
Steels, especially hard tool steels can be welded conventionally but the heat and the stress introduced with Tig welding make it almost impossible to remove all witness to the repair.
Carr’s carries out dozens of tool repairs daily and has three lasers dedicated to this task.

Just one of the jobs undertaken this week at CWT. Thousands of straight springs looped and welded by hand keeping the shop floor busy. CWT can offer:- Mould and tool construction / repair High precision welds Protected weld seam (enclosed) Clean surface (no product particles) Medical part welding
Laser vs EB weldingNews
Laser welding and Electron Beam welding comparisons. Easy guide. The Disk or Fibre laser and the Electron Beam (EB) all make for good welding techniques and are both high power beam processes. They both produce neat repeatable welding procedures and due to the capital cost of the equipment are relatively expensive compared to conventional MIG […]

A client came to Carrs while trying to combat a medical condition called ‘Persistent Nystagmus’, an abnormal rhythmic oscillation of the eyes that is estimated to occur in 0.24% of the population. This effects a person’s ability to control eye movements, having a substantial impact on quality of life. CWT were able to successfully weld […]
