My Approach

I live by the philosophy, "Beware the man with one gun, he knows how to use it." This philosophy is applied to my focus as a Gunsmith.

I choose to focus my training and talents to working only on the 1911 platform. This way I can offer you the best possible outcome of what you seek.

My Story

I am a gunsmith, machinist, former LEO and Veteran.

I trained as a 1911 gunsmith under Master Gunsmith Will O'Hara. I am fortunate to have trained under Will O'Hara and continue to have him as a mentor because he has over 40 years in the business and I am a firm believer that we never stop learning. I want to bring that expertise to you.

I trained as a machinist at Fullerton College in Fullerton, CA.

Prior to opening my own business I spent the last 23 years serving my country and the public. I spent 15 years as Law Enforcement officer, 5 of those as part of the instructor cadre. While in the USAF I worked as an Aeromedical Evacuation Med-Tech and then a Security Forces troop. I left the USAF as a SSgt.
