About Us

I’ve been a hunter since I was old enough to follow my dad around, probably 55 years or so.  Also since a young age I loved to shoot, not necessarily competitively but just for the fun of it. All this led me to have my first custom rifle built about 15 years ago. Any of you who have done this know the drill. Order the receiver . . . wait, order the barrel. . . wait. . . order the stock. . . . wait, usually at least 6 months. Then try to find a smith and wait some more. If you’re lucky you might have your rifle complete and ready to shoot in 9-12 months, maybe more.

This led me to learn to do it myself. My dad was a machinist by profession and I have always loved to reload, build things, and tinker, always in an effort to improve. I live very close to my local gun club making it easy to experiment and find what works, and sometimes what doesn’t.

Crown Ridge Barrel Works is the result of all this. My goal is to bring my customers a quality product at a reasonable price without the long wait. I will be offering Rem/Age, Savage and Howa mini pre-fits to start with. I also will have a few Big Horn “Origin” actions available. I look forward to enabling your shooting needs.
