Custom Firearms & Gunsmithing
Full Service Gunsmithing on Modern, Antique and Obsolete Firearms.
Welcome, I'm Jim (jw) Thiel owner and operator of jw Custom.  I have been working on firearms of all kinds since the mid 1970s and truly love what I do.  After having a shop in Denver, Co. for many years I returned to my home state of Kansas about 6 years ago and now operate in Salina.

I am a Vietnam Veteran and a former Police Officer.   I am a proud member of the National Rifle Association, American Gunsmithing Association, National Association of Firearms Retailers and the United States Practical Shooting Association.
The adjacent pictures are of my shop in Salina, it is a full time business located in a industrial building.  I work at this full time, usually 5 days a week.  I am not a kitchen table or basement gunsmith with another full time job.  This is what I do and this is all I do!

No matter what your shooting discipline, I can provide you with timely and fairly priced services.  My turn around time varies but usually can be measured in weeks not months or years.

I will give you an estimate of charges or a flat rate price for a job and unless approved by you prior to the work being done, there will be no extra charges or add-ons-NO SURPRISES.

On following pages I provide examples of the work that I do and pricing of some basic services and jobs.
Please feel free to contact me for specific information on your particular needs.
