EGW has been designing and manufacturing world-class parts and accessories for popular rifle and pistol models since 1991.
Known for our superior craftsmanship and attention to detail, we use only the highest-grade materials and adhere to the strictest quality control standards—because whether you’re a competition shooter, an avid hunter, LE, or concerned with self-defense, we know how important reliability and precision are, and that when your life depends on it, thousandths can make a difference. It’s the reason why almost every major gun manufacturer and many professional shooters and operators swear by our products.
THE EGW STORY
I still remember the feeling I got when my father took me out shooting for the first time. The gun was a 1922 Springfield, and I was 6. I've been hooked on guns ever since.
A love of guns runs in my family. My grandparents were NRA instructors, and my dad was an avid gun collector. I started tinkering with rifles early on, curious how they worked. In my early 20's, I took a 2-year correspondence course on gunsmithing, and completed it in 5 months. Soon after, I 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, I 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.

OFFICE / WAREHOUSE
IN MEMORY OF:
12/18/1951 - 4/14/2021
In remembrance of Glenn H.
Yesterday, we unfortunately lost one of our employees. Glenn worked here at EGW for the past 3 years. He was retired and chose to spend his free time here at EGW as one of our inspectors. He enjoyed the time he spent here around other firearms enthusiasts, as he was a firearms enthusiast and avid hunter. He had a background in machining as well, which made him a great fit for the inspector role he took on. He was a friend and a valued member of our team and will truly be missed.
