Best gunsmith nobody has heard of?

Recommended Posts

Matt Cheely is my guy. Broke a front sight recently and sent the sight tracker barrel to him and he replaced the sight and got it back in the mail same day!

Thanks Matt.

Don Kehoe

Orange County, California

Former 'smith for Terry Tussey and Paul Liebenberg's Pistol Dynamics # 1.

His pistols are classic, clean, and beautiful...and they run.

He can also do all the crazy lightening cuts that are in vogue on the race guns these days.

Wouldn't let anyone else touch my 1911s.

Paul Grundhauser, Grundhauser Gunworks, North Branch Mn. He built this heirloom piece of art for me to shoot until my son is old enough to shoot.

Another vote for Neil Keller - Kustom Ballistics near Fort Wayne, Indiana. Very high quality work.

I don't know if he is known outside of Michigan or not, but a guy named John Trautman (J.T. Guns) builds really great 2011 gun. I've shot with a lot of his customers, my Dad included, and his guns just flat out run and run. They also have a style that's hard to define in words, but I can usually pick one out of the crowd.

I know John personally and shoot Steel Challenge and USPSA with him regularly. Great guy. He also does excellent work with S&W revolvers.

Also, Bruce Warren of BC Armory. Excellent 1911/2011 and S&W revolver work.

I just had both my 1911's worked on by Steve Moore in the Denver area. Couldn't be happier with the results.

Ben Hoffman in West Chester, Ohio.

Seems totally off the radar. I was shocked when I met him and he opened his garage door, and started talking :)
