- Custom Gun Builds
I was very active in the La Grande Rifle and Pistol Club and served as a Trustee, managed and coached the Youth Rifle team and started the Bench Rest Program at that club. It was as a competitive Bench Rest shooter my desire to build Precision Rifles began.
Throughout these years I had the opportunities to learn from Master Gunsmiths; Bill Knechtel, Pete Grisel, and Ferris Pindel to mention a few. I studied the techniques of Greg Tannel, and Gordy Gritters and continue to learn as the technology evolves.
My passion for gun work led to a desire to have enough room to build and shoot quality precise rifles. That home is in Council, Idaho; two hours north of Boise.
Council Mountain Gunworks opened its doors in 2011. The shop is located on 97 open acres and is fully equipped and dedicated to building precision and custom rifles as well as restoration and customization of quality firearms.
