who we are
As the owner and lead gunsmith, I would like to share a little about myself and how the company started. We all have a story, and here are parts of mine.
At a very young age my father introduced me to hunting and the outdoors which sparked my interest and curiosity into firearms. Soon, hunting became a byproduct of my passion for firearms.
Hunting came with a lot of responsibility and my father taught me respect for our first responders, men and women who wear the uniform and all those who carry firearms on their tool belt.
Shortly after graduating high school I enlisted into the US Navy and spent five years working for Uncle Sam. This only fueled my ambition to learn more about the firearm industry. It consumed me so much that I ended up proposing to my now wife at a local gun range!
The next few years I began taking classes and studying the shooting world and the tools they use to be proficient in their tasks. I joined a local sportsman’s club and learned of the joys and benefits of custom guns.
My last enlistment was up in the Navy and it was time for me to choose my career. That is when I found the Yavapai College Gunsmithing program in Prescott, AZ. Being an Arizona native, I did not hesitate to join the three year program.
During the program I began to get involved with some local gunsmiths as well as some competitive shooting. This solidified my passion for the industry, as I began to learn how to produce a reliable product.
As part of the program we learned to build rifles, pistols and shotguns from the ground up. Their functions, operations and ballistics became gospel and I soon learned there is more to a gun than looks. This is when I decided to open my own shop, giving birth to Finks Custom Gunsmithing.
Whether you are fixing Grandpa’s old gun, adding to your collection, or having a gun made for self-defense here at Finks Custom Gunsmithing LLC, we take pride in our work.
Our faith in Christ has opened many doors to make this business successful. Thank you to all who have supported our industry, our troops, and those who are serving as a first responder.
Keeping your boom stick chambering is our mission and we guarantee it!
No job is too small, so please do not hesitate to give us a call and see what we can do for you.
What People are saying about us
Many thanks to Desert Eagle Guns and Prescott Valley Guns for recommending Fink’s Custom Gunsmithing. Dave calls you back in a timely fashion. Dave sends invoices and receipts via email. Dave does amazing work, and I was simply stunned at how quickly he got the job done. I gave Dave 5 stars because that’s all I’m allowed to give.
F.C.G. Is my go to Gunsmithing shop. I recently consulted Dave about a grip issue I was having with my SW Shield. He quickly narrowed it down and provided the best practical solution. Thanks for keeping me chambering, Dave!
I consider Fink Custom Gunsmithing a valuable asset for all my firearm needs. They always provide accurate, honest, and timely service
Amazing craftsmanship and great customer service
David has worked on a couple of my guns now. He reblued my 1959 colt single shot .22. He did an awesome job. Great service and top notch work!
I appreciate being able to deal with honest, straightforward people. I’m not a firearms expert myself, so I have a lot of questions. The quality service I received, coupled with the honest answers to my questions have made me a committed customer.
Dave is absolutely wonderful to work with. He’s enthusiastic, knowledgable, precise, and honest.
Recently had a muzzle brake installed on my .308 Remington. Dave not only threaded, installed and refinished the barrel but he guaranteed my satisfaction on the brake. Said if it doesn’t live up to the hype, he would buy it back and install a different brake for the difference in price. Now to me that says a lot on the man’s integrity and craftsmanship. I don’t know of any other smith who cares that much about their customers. Dave has earned a customer for life!
Wow! The custom work these guys do is amazing! Dave really is running a top notch gunsmith business. He was nice enough to show me their operation and give me a little insight into what they do. Very impressive!
I was really impressed with their workshop and craftsmanship. I got the chance to see Dave’s shop and the projects he is working. Dave really has an attention to detail and you can see that in the guns he builds and fixes, he really knows his stuff. Also Dave is such an easy guy to work with, he genuinely cares about the customer and the end product.
