Bailey Bradshaw Gun and Rifle Maker
Welome to Bradshaw gun and rifle. My name is Bailey Bradshaw. I specialize in building single shot falling block rifles ,small bore double rifles and side by side falling block double rifles.. I manufacture actions of my own design with particular attention paid to asthetics and flow of design. Providing a fine rifle with exemplary handling, accuracy and style is paramount.
Metalwork is in my blood. Several generations of my family have been Blacksmiths and Farriers. I began forging horseshoes at age 11 for my Father. During my 6 year enlistment in the U.S. Navy, I began forging knives to take to sea and finish in my spare time. My shipmates began purchasing the knives as I finished them, marking the begining of a 15 year career as a Bladesmith. I achieved the level of Master Bladesmith with the American Bladesmith Society, which I regard as the highest honor of my bladesmtihing.
From displaying my knives at the Dallas Safari Club exposition for several years, I was able to handle, admire and examine hundereds of fine rifles. The seeds were planted, and through intensive study of design, manufacturing techniques and history of double rifles, I set out to design and manufacture my own rifles. A mere 10 years later, I realized my goal and am living a dream creating rifles that posess the qualities I hold dear.
My shop is located in Northeast Texas near the small town of Diana, 2 hrs East of Dallas .
