Al Edge is a master gunsmith, offering beautiful, 100% accurate, working recreations of early American rifles, using the finest components available.

Whatever your needs - be it target work, hunting, re-enactments, or collecting - Al will build each piece with the care and attention to detail necessary to create a piece of functional art. With proper care, your rifle will be used and cherished for many generations.

Al's specialty is Virginia rifles. He is a native Virginian, and has been blessed with the opportunity to study and restore many original rifles, including many Virginia rifles. He also offers five styles of Hawkens, using components by Don Stith at St. Louis Plains Rifle Company.

Al has several pieces on display and for sale at the National Firearms Museum at NRA headquarters in Northern Virginia. For information about his work for the NRA, you may contact us or the Curator of the NFM.

All restoration and repair work is done on an hourly basis.
