Welcome to Schuetzen Gun Company
Owner: Richard P. McKinney, Gunmaker
|Welcome to the company website! I hope you will look carefully at what I offer. The site is a basic informational style to acquaint you with what I do as far as services and prices. It also shows many examples of the work I have done for customers over the last 35 plus years in gunmaking. As you will see, my specialty is single shot rifles of the late 18th and early 20th centuries. However, I am no stranger to modern target rifles and pistols. After all, aren't all guns interesting?
I am and always have been a one-man shop, doing everything in house, (with one exception). I carve and fit my own stocks and make my own patterns. I do all my own machining, barrel fitting, and bluing. The one exception is color case hardening, which I quit doing some years ago, but all prep work for it is done here. I try to use only the best heat treater in this field, I am very picky for my customers. But as of this date, 10/2010, that may be coming back in house again, making Schuetzen Gun Co. a one-stop service once again.
You will see that I only list a phone number and address as contacts. I realize in the information age there is more, but if I had to fax, twitter, facebook, e-mail, blackberry, and all the other ways to communicate, I would not have time to work! I feel it is better to talk with someone to get a feel of what they are looking for, so I always make time to talk with, and follow-up with prospective customers. And that does not end after the sale, either. I take pride in being available for the customer if he needs help, or there is a problem, I back up my workmanship 100%.
