About Dalgleish Gunsmiths

There has always been a Dalgleish at 11 Montgomery Street. Initially only a Newsagents, the shop was taken over by Bobby Dalgleish from his father in the 1950s. It was Bobby who first opened the gunsmiths in the back of the shop following his passion for gun collecting and recreational shooting. It was often joked that the shop was the only place where you could get a Sunday paper, a packet of sweets and a box of 12 bore cartridges all at the same time. He soon took his own son Alex under his wing, starting his career as a gunsmith at an early age.

In 1973 Alex Dalgliesh started an apprenticeship with David McKay Brown in Hamilton making round action firearms. Learning all his gun making skills here and excelling at his trade, he eventually became the workshop manager in 1980. Alex returned to 11 Montgomery Street in 1981 to start his own gunsmith business at the back of the shop where he repaired shotguns and rifles and also made his own shotguns. When Bobby Dalgleish died in 1985 Alex took over the shop just as Bobby did from his own father. He then set out to transform the newsagents into a retail shop whilst expanding his stock of quality guns to include all manner of shooting equipment.
