More about Black Iron Physics, LLC
A Type 7 FFL allows us to manufacturer firearms as well as repair them and do custom work.
This means that we can build your dream gun from scratch or do custom work on your firearm to your specifications.

The Class II SOT (Special Occupational Taxpayer--Class II is higher in capability than Class III ) means that I can manufacturer, sell and transfer NFA (National Firearms Act)  weapons such as machineguns, sound suppressors (silencers), short barreled rifles (SBR), short barreled shotguns (SBS), and AOWs (Any Other Weapon).


I do general gunsmithing, refinishing, repairs and other custom work.
Please inquire as to your needs.
I specialize in custom scout rifles, the venerable 1911 pistol and its brethren, shotguns, and precision rifles.
Practical firearms for personal defense are a special interest of mine.

A note on expense, investments and philosophy


    It is unwise to pay too much, but it is worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money, that is all. When you pay too little you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the things it was bought to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot, it cannot be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder it is well to add something for the risk you run. And if you do that, you will have enough to pay for something better. There is hardly anything in the world that some man cannot make a little worse and sell for a little cheaper, and the people who consider price only, are this man's lawful prey.
