Hello and Welcome to NW Custom Firearms


Here is a little bit about us

My wife started a trophy and engraving shop back in 2009. We started from scratch and with practically nothing and have built it up into a successful business. She runs the day to day operations and graphics work while I work in other aspects of the business. We decided that after 4 years it was time to start adding to the business. We decided that since almost no one else does it that we would offer custom laser engraving on firearms, as well as gunsmithing.

As before, we started small with the gunsmith business and only offering limited services. As time goes on we will be adding more and more services. Such as recently we added hot bluing and a slew of other gunsmithing services.

I am a graduate of  the Colorado School of Trades for Gunsmithing and graduated in 1999. Since then I have worked for several gun shops in the past decade but none of those shops have lasted or I left due to lack or ethics that certain shop owners exhibited. When I was not working for another shop I have been gunsmithing for myself, friends and family as a hobby. I have a love of building target rifles, race guns and customizing firearms. I have built competition handguns and hunting rifles. I like adding custom touches to make your every day hunting rifle into a sub MOA rifle. I love being able to take grandpa's old beaten up passed down rifle and make it look better then brand new.

We have added several people to our team as time went on. Brenden Jones as an apprentice has been with us for 2 years and many of you have talked with him when you call. Bill Maggs has been our IT guy, business consultant for 4 years and over the past year has taken a larger role in our day to day operations.

We are an outdoors family, from camping at the beach or up in the mountains we like to spend time outside. We like to fish, take the kids shooting up in the mountains or at the gun club where we are active members at Clark Rifles, a local gun club.

My firearms experience includes a love of firearms, reading and learning on my own, graduate of the Colorado School of Trades for Gunsmithing, 17 years of Gunsmith experience, 6 years in the military, 6 years as a certified Glock Armorer. I have spent years shooting competition, IPSC, IDPA, GSSF, Trap and Small Bore although have backed out of it due to time restraints. Even so we are looking forward to getting into 3 gun and down the road, cowboy shooting. I am an avid re-loader and have been loading various handgun loads to include my competition loads and hunting and target rifle rounds. We also have 10 years engraving experience.

Currently we offer mostly services i.e. gunsmithing, laser engraving, re-finishing, FFL transfers etc... We order firearms all the time and have a small store front with some guns and accessories for sale. We take in firearms for consignment and we buy and sell all the time.  We plan on expanding as time and money allows to sell more parts and accessories and firearms. Some of this has already happened over the past 4 years of us being open but there is still a ways to go. Thanks for understanding that we are a small business and working hard at the American dream.
