Although a relatively new company, MJ Tulo Gunmakers has been in developmental stage for 35 years. It is the culmination of all the work being done by three craftsman that started in 1978. Nothing we have found has brought us as much pleasure and passion as working with fine firearms and traditional gunbuilding methods. We come from a background mostly in older shotguns and rifles, leaning heavily toward side-by-sides and single shots, and have made a study of the fine gunmakers in history. This lead us to our goal: building fine custom rifles and shotguns as you would have seen in at the turn of the 20th century.
Today we're committed to bringing you our idea of a bespoke or truly custom gun. We specialize in fitting your shotgun or rifle to your style, intended use, and body shape, giving you a truly custom and natural feel for any of the activities your firearm would be used for. Once fitting and dimensions are decided on, finish is the name of the game. In the auto industry they have a saying, "All show and no go," meaning a car that looks nice but has little or no function. At MJ Tulo Gunmakers, our rifles and shotguns perform at least as well as, but often better, than they look. To us, anything else is unacceptable. If you'd like to discuss work on other types of firearms, we'd be happy to recommend you to another shop that would be suitable.
Please enjoy your time on our page and drop us a line so we can get your project started.
