Top 25 Gunsmiths in the U.S.

Who do you want working on your pistol?

Deep River Customs provides basic and advanced instruction from expert gunsmiths.

Lists are a huge part of everyday life. To-do lists, grocery lists — even contracts and receipts. Searching for “restaurants near me” delivers a location-based list of available options, though not necessarily the best ones. What about when it comes to your passion, your interests, and investments?

The American Pistolsmiths Guild (APG) has crafted a list of the top Pistolsmiths in the United States to simplify the process of finding someone reliable and skilled. APG was founded in 1971 from a desire to promote craftsmanship and the exchange of ideas among members while providing shooters/consumers, an easy way to find the very best pistolsmiths across the nation.

Looking for someone to help you craft, repair, or fine-tune a competition 1911, carry, or any other handgun you may have? Consult the list below.
