Gunware is a rising star for the highest quality custom-built rifles, firearms and accessories for hunting and targeting enthusiasts. The company, founded on its slogan, “Quality is Priority,” was created after owner Adam Busse grew disappointed with several attempts at ordering custom rifles from other outfits.

Busse knew it could be done better and explains how his company came to exist:

Custom rifles made with unmatched precision and craftsmanship

Gunware rifles are made with the utmost care and attention to detail and are created by people who truly appreciate and know firearms. Busse’s company creates custom rifles that are machined with unmatched precision and superb craftsmanship—and are delivered to your door in 30 days or less.

When we asked what sets Gunware apart from other companies who build custom rifles, Busse explained:

[perfectpullquote align=”full” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=””]“I think a lot of companies start out wanting to do a really good job—but then they get busy. And when they get busy, sometimes they start focusing on producing more rifles, instead of putting the amount of workmanship into each individual rifle. What Gunware does is try to put the same time, effort and craftsmanship into each independent rifle.”[/perfectpullquote]

Uncompromised quality in a timely fashion

Customers who order from competitors of similar quality as Gunware will wait, on average, for a minimum of three months—even up to a year—to receive their rifle. Whereas, at Gunware your purchase guarantees you receive uncompromised quality in a timely fashion.

We were curious as to how Gunware could offer such top-quality workmanship and still soundly beat their competitors’ turnaround times. Busse explained that the number one reason it takes so much time for other companies to build custom rifles is they do not stock the components to build them. Gunware, on the other hand, has all the necessary parts in stock.

“Most people don’t want to put forth the money to stock the inventory for a quick turnaround time,” Busse noted. “Gunware, however, chooses to spend the money to have quality components in stock.”

When asked what he would like shooters to know about Gunware, Busse replied:

[perfectpullquote align=”full” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=””]“Our passion stems from the fact that we are shooters ourselves, and our number one goal is to be able to produce a very, very top-shelf custom rifle. We like to see people hit targets they’ve never hit. We like to see them shoot tighter groups than they’ve ever shot—and we like to see their confidence grow.”[/perfectpullquote]

Adam Busse on Gunware’s passion

Busse made it very clear how important confidence is to a shooter. “One of the biggest parts of being able to shoot long is confidence,” he said. “And whenever they have a Gunware rifle, we see their confidence grow.”

Top of the line accessories

In addition to offering the highest quality workmanship, Gunware sells only the elite brands of firearms and accessories, starting with McMillan stocks. They offer the top of the line optic and accessories brands such as Nightforce, Flatline Ops, Talley and Atlas. Gunware’s rifle parts and hardware include brands such as Borden and Stiller actions, along with 20 MOA Rails. Their precision barrels include Proof Research, Krieger, Hawk Hill, Bartlett and Brux. Their trigger selection includes the highly-rated Jewell triggers.

The bottom line is no matter what you’re choosing, you get only the best when you order from Gunware. “We have all kinds of different products for the long range shooter, in-house, in our inventory, ready to be shipped,” Busse said.

Customer service second to none

The advantage of purchasing from Gunware doesn’t stop with quality workmanship and excellent products. According to Busse, his company is “old-school” when it comes to customer service. “So many times you’ll find companies who advertise their products on the internet, but then do not even publicize a phone number,” he explained.

“When a customer calls Gunware, we actually pick up the phone and talk to them,” Busse said. “We visit with them to try and answer their questions. Even if we don’t have what they’re looking for, we’ll help guide them in the direction that gets their question answered.”
