Tim is a fantastic gunsmith and a great guy. I have no need to go anywhere else for gunsmith work, and frankly I don’t want to go anywhere else. He’s helped me out numerous times, is very skilled, and is very easy to work with.
Tim built a 300 win mag off a remington 700 action for me. I let him know what I was looking for and he delivered a gun that checked all the boxes. The gun shoots great and with a little load development this was the result. 3 shot group at 100 yards off bags. Thanks Tim.
My front sight was canted 1/8" off center from the factory and Tim fixed it up and did a great job in a timely manner. Looking forward to doing more buisness and i will be sending people his way if they need a gunsmith!
I had a small barrel threading project done at Tim's and could not be happier with the service I received! Tim is very knowledgable and friendly, and didn't mind my brother and I hanging around for 30 mins and asking questions while he was working. I would definitely recommend his services to anyone looking for quality smith work.
Never disappointed in the work done, frequently surprised by the high quality
Best service i could ever want
You don't become the best and not have everyone wanting your service
I've had done transfers, selling, buying, repairs, rebuilds, resto work, complete rebuilds, you name, he can do it all.
I wouldn't consider taking anything, anywhere else, it will always be done right, even 20rnd Beretta mags
Tim fitted a grip frame for a Ruger Blackhawk last summer, noticed I hadn’t given a review for the work. It started as a raw stainless casting and ended up as a polished Bisley frame. I’d use him again for anything firearms related.
Tim has done a few projects for me and the result is always the same. Amazing. End of story. From complete refinish to custom machining, Tim is hands down the best! Your search for THE gunsmith stops here.
I hand delivered an extremely sentimental firearm that needed rebluing. I hoped that he could get it looking half way decent again. Tim went above and beyond what I expected, and did so under what I would consider extraordinary circumstances. The quality of his work is excellent and the pricing is more than fair. To say that I am grateful and pleased with his work is an understatement. I do not trust many people to work on my firearms. I will be a repeat customer.
Highest quality craftsmanship rebuilding a vintage 1911 Colt Gold Cup
Tim Copeland rebuilt and refreshed an old Colt 1911 Gold Cup for me that needed all new springs, new extractor & replaced a loose ejector. Found some minor tune up issues during the process. My 45 runs like new even though a 50 year old 1911 with plenty of rounds fired.
Really great communicating with me during the evaluation, test and build processes, and reasonably priced too!
Take your 1911 to Copeland Custom Gunworks. Tim is “the“ 1911 guy in the greater Portland area!
