Griffin & Howe Griffin & Howe


Griffin & Howe is one of the few companies that still performs repairs and alterations by hand. We like it that way and so do our clients. As the premier gunsmith facility in New Jersey we see to it that our gunsmiths have been trained the European way, a way that ensures they are very skilled in hand craftsmanship and spend quality time on details. Being one of the only traditional gunsmith facilities in New Jersey, with a workshop that is unmatched, there is no job that we are unable to handle.

The best way to make sure your favorite sporting firearm is ready when you need it is to let our gunsmiths look it over and tune it up for you prior to the shooting season. Strip cleaning should be completed, at a minimum, once a year to ensure the proper function of your firearm.

We will take great care of your firearm and ensure that it is returned to you in the finest shooting shape, as per your requests.

The kind of quality work we pride ourselves on takes time, to learn, to master, and to complete, and that is exactly what we have built our reputation on.

Griffin & Howe has been in the gunsmith business for over 90 years due to our old fashioned dedication to obsession with excellence. When you entrust us with your firearm for repair or alterations, please feel confident that it will receive the care and attention that it deserves.
