Gunsmithing since 1954, beginning with metal refinishing; 45 years experience with Smith and Wesson; 32 years with 1911 handgun action tuning and accurizing; 40 years experience in grip making; 25 years experience checkering 1911’s; 40 years experience with Colt action tuning both single and double action; 14 years with Ruger action tuning both single and double action.

Whether handgun refinishing, grip making, action tuning / accurizing, customizing or checkering, attention to detail is what I take pride in. Quality of work is more important to me than anything else. This can only be achieved in the traditional manner, with files, stones, and sandpaper and  it is these traditional standards that I strive to pass on to my clients in everything I do. Time, Skill, Dedication, whether it is that treasured heirloom, or the newest addition that may just need a little personalization.

I explain further the attention to detail aspect on the Methodology page, and if you take the time to look closely at the examples shown on the handgun Gallery page, I think you will see that my gunsmithing work has a different look than most others.
