THE EGW STORY
George founded EGW in 1991 after working for many years in the machining and firearms industry. He is fully devoted to manufacturing 100% American-made products of superior quality. At EGW, he is involved with all aspects of the business from new product design and writing the programs, to speaking with customers on a daily basis. George is a 1911 expert and an accomplished competition shooter. He also enjoys camping with his family and logging.
A love of guns runs in his family. His grandparents were NRA instructors, and his dad was an avid gun collector. he started tinkering with rifles early on, curious how they worked. In Georges early 20’s, he took a 2-year correspondence course on gunsmithing and completed it in 5 months. Soon after, he went to a local gunsmith to ask them some questions about the bluing process, and 2 hours later walked out with a job. Five years later, George decided it was time to open my own shop and was fortunate enough to be in a position to create Evolution Gun Works.
That was 1991. Starting out as a small smithing shop with 4 manual machines in a 1,600 sq. ft. space in Doylestown, EGW quickly gained a reputation for excellence. After more than a decade of doing custom work for well-known competition shooters, including Doug Koenig and Travis Tomassi, we had doubled our space in Doylestown, outgrown that and moved to a 5,500 sq. ft. space in Quakertown where we transitioned into manufacturing parts and accessories. Our next move was across the parking lot to a 23,000 sq. ft. space. Today, EGW is one of the largest suppliers of scope mounts, 1911 pistol, and AR and rifle parts and accessories in the U.S.
