Recent Testimonial:

  • The Sharps that you folks built for me is just a prize:  it caused quite a stir in the gun shop.  Actually I felt dismissed for a while as all the sales staff passed it around among themselves before I ever got to touch it.  

    In many areas, gun purchases for sure, value received is at least partly percieved.  That begs the question:  Did I get $5000.00 worth of rifle for my $5000.00?  Absolutely, and when I'm able I'll order another.  I think that I spoke with at least 3 different persons at times I called your company and to the last, everyone was more than courteous and  they cared.   Couple that with a faultless product and everyone wins.  I hope that you feel the same.  It must be a good feeling to know that your rifles are in a league of their own.  Thank you to all of your team.
