We have been buying and selling antique weapons for 52 years and first started trading in 1968 in the Merrion Centre, Leeds West Yorkshire, England. Two years later Andrew started travelling worldwide to find rare and unusual antique weapons. In the 1970’s he started selling antique weapons worldwide by producing an illustrated mail-order catalogue of Antique Arms & Armour. This paved the way many years later for the website Andrewbottomley.com which was launched in August 2012.

Andrew’s passion for antique weapons shows through on his website with a huge selection of rare and unusual items, each with a detailed description and many with a history of the item. This website carries the largest selection of genuine antique weapons for sale in Great Britain, none of these items are reproductions or modern weapons and each item is guaranteed to be original.

Today Andrew is still travelling the world with his wife Jacky. Finding unique items to enhance our customers collections.
