Never heard of them but Doylestown is about 15min from me. What did you send there? Let me know about them.

I have never had any work done by them but George's reputation is outstanding. He is able to do some incredible things with a pistol.

I'm sure you will be very pleased.

I ordered a part from them once. It came in and was not what exactly I thought it would be. I called them to return it and they were very nice about it and gave me a full refund.

Not all that long ago Todd Jarret used them and they have built some great guns that I have seen on the ranges at most matches. I know of another top 100 gunsmith that used them to help fill his orders when he was backed up on orders.

The general consensus on the 1911forum is, George and crew are among some of the best smiths out there. Their products, custom work and customer service is excellent.

I have not personally had work done by them, but I do own a BHP that was customized by EGW. They do excellent work.

EGW is one of the top gunsmiths going. EGW has been in business for 11 years. He builds Doug Koenig's guns and for a lot of other top shooters. His work is first rate. I lost count of how many of my guns he has worked on. He is building my new open gun right now. He makes parts for many of the manufactures out there. generally when a gunsmith messes up checkering or needs welding done they send it to George. Georges customer service and reputation are the best.

I've had a bunch of guns done there. George does good work and he's up front about the time and has things done pretty close to his estimates. Great work at good prices.


I live about 15 mins from there too, they are right off Cold Spring Creamery Rd behind Doylestown Airport. Left side of the building at the very back.

They did a trigger Job on my CZ75 SA. Including shortening the reset for me like I requested. Also installed a fiber optics front sight. I could not be more pleased with the work, or their attitude.
