History Of Bapty

Bapty was founded in 1919 by Major Walter Bapty who began trading firearms to private collectors.

Selling blank-firing weaponry to theatre productions was a small addition to the business but it quickly became extremely popular.

Today, we are Europe's largest supplier of both historic and modern weaponry to the Film, Television and Theatre industry.

We have an extensive stock list ranging from Matchlock Muskets to ultra modern Assault Rifles and Handguns.

Alongside our armoury, we have one of the most renowned collections of early artillery weapons and cannons.
