Apex Gunsmithing

New Merch!

It's been busy the past month or two!  We now have some new apparel available to anyone who wants to support their friendly neighborhood gunsmith!

  • Orange tees now available in Large, 2XL and 4XL for $17 each or two for $30 (any size combo)
  • Camo deluxe hats for $25
  • Mesh back orange on black trucker caps for $20

Thanks to all of our awesome customers, whether you stopped by for a transfer or a full custom rifle build!


Schedule Feb 22nd to 26th

I'm going to have limited availability this week while I help care for my mom after an ER trip this past weekend.  Today and Tuesday are set aside and she has another followup Wednesday afternoon, so any pickup or drop off will have to be 11AM to 2PM Wednesday.  Normal scheduling should resume Thursday.

Downtime this week

The next couple of days I'll be offline working on upgrading our two desktop PCs.  Usually it'd be one good afternoon of computer work but just in case I'm going to stake out Wednesday and Thursday, since you never know.  I should be able to check emails on my phone in the meantime, but don't expect any long detailed responses until Friday!

Missing emails issue fixed

Had some trouble with outgoing emails not reaching their destination, apologies to anyone who hasn't heard back from me recently!  After some serious digging my web host was able to isolate and fix the problem this afternoon and emails should be good to go again.  I'll be re-sending any emails that I suspect were missed, so if you get a duplicate email feel free to trash it.

Hey, we have merch now!  Apex Gunsmithing branded tees, pullovers, zip up hoodies and ball caps are here and they really came out great!  Thanks to the folks at Athletic Lettering in York for top notch work, great service and working with me to make adjustments where necessary.  We've had them make hats and tees for other businesses in the past and they've always been excellent!

We're official!

We're official!

We've only got a small batch of each for now, but I'm already getting requests for the hats and tees so we may have to order more!  The pricing isn't final but should be close to the following:

  • Tees: $15, 2XL only right now and only a handful available since we're busy wearing them!
  • Hats: $20 maximum, 6 or so available.
  • Pullovers: $50, none for sale since I claimed all of them myself.  They're insanely nice relaxed fit athletic pullovers with an earplugs pocket for the range!
  • Zip Ups: $35, none for sale since we only got 4 initially.

I'll put up an actual for sale page item for these at some point, but until then feel free to email if you're interested and I'll gauge interest on another batch.


Back to Work

Hope everyone had a great holiday season and new year!  If anyone left me a message and hasn't heard back by this evening please contact me again, I'm working through a backlog of emails and phone calls from the holiday break and trying to reply to everyone ASAP!

In other news this week should see the maiden voyage of my gunsmithing live stream show, an experiment on twitch.tv!  The site is largely focused around videogame content, but recently finalized a category for creative arts and has been considering an educational category as well.  I'll be tackling interesting firearms live on camera, discussing the history, design and function of all sorts of guns from a benchtop view while answering questions from viewers in chat.  When I have a schedule set I'll be sure to post it here and on twitter to see if we can get a few folks to stop by and hang out!  First gun TBD, but it might be a Lionheart LH9 or the new Ruger American pistol depending on which I get my hands on first!

Holiday Hours

I'll be officially off for the holidays starting Wednesday the 23rd until Monday, January 4th!  I'll still be fielding questions via email but won't be scheduling pickup or drop off until then.

Thanks to everyone for a great 2015, and looking forward to an even better 2016 as the shop grows!

We’re back!

Phone's back up and running, but may not have a voicemail greeting yet.  I'll be setting that up later today hopefully, but rest assured the office phone is fully operational and any messages left will be answered ASAP!

Thanks for your patience while we got that switched over, it was a really bad time of year to schedule a provider change!

Happy (belated) Thanksgiving!

I just wanted to wish everyone a happy, if late, Thanksgiving and hope that everyone had a great turkey day with the family.  We had a nice peaceful holiday and I look forward to having everything back to normal by the middle of next week.

Monday and Wednesday next week are scheduled for Comcast technicians to run the business phone line separately and install equipment.  That means our phone should be back up and running on Wednesday, after far too long waiting on the business account setup and logistics.  Must be a busy time of year for them to install phone service...

Phone’s on the fritz

Due to a combination of circumstances my office line is currently disconnected pending a switch over to a new service provider.  Our home line has been out of order for several days and the response has been sluggish at best, so the issues have forced me to pursue other options.  If you can't reach me via phone for the next few days, please drop me an email at the address on the sidebar.  Don't drop by without giving me a heads up though, it's prime auction season for both our main businesses so I'm usually not home during the day a couple times a week!

If you call in and manage to get my voicemail I'll try to get back to you as soon as possible!
