Don Horowitz Gunsmith Mercersburg, PA
Mercersburg PA 17236-1412
WONDERFUL, knowledgeable, and generous
Mr. Horowitz spent well into an hour working with my son and showing him aspects of his business when we stopped in one day while my son was in gunsmithing school. Mr. Horowitz even gave him useful, valuable books along with the priceless advice. His work is impeccable, and I have never heard anything but good words for his work in all the years I grew up in the town of Mercersburg, and in a little town like that, if there's dirt to be dished, you would have heard it. LOL I agree with the reviewer above that if you have some time to stop and listen, you will leave the shop wiser about a few firearm topics.Written
Don was the man in his day
Don comes from the old school of gunsmiths who knew every inch of any gun and could make the part if he couldn't find it. Well, I've dealt with Don for the past 20 years, more or less, and I can't say that he ever did an unsatisfactory job. Now, I never had him build a custom bench gun or varminter but he did correct some other gunsmith's mistakes and he did a heck of a job on a slide and rail job as well as a trigger job on a FEG P19R. Before you jump on that, he said to never bring him one of those again. The exterior looked so good he didn't think that the interior would be that crude. The slide rattles like crazy but I've never had a FTE or FTL.
That said, he's slowing down and turning down the harder work. So, if you have an hour to kill he will tell stories that will entertain if not amaze you.Written (Edited )
