Powers Metal Works,LLC,  owned and operated full time by John L. Powers. I have over 38 years of  experience in refinishing fine firearms and gunsmithing specializes in  manufacturing the highest quality ultra-precision long range hunting  rifles. My shop is located in Duson Louisiana, right outside of  Lafayette. I am a holder of a Class 7, manufacturing Federal Firearms  License. I was a Browning, Remington and Winchester warranted Gunsmith.

My experience stems from years of gun repairs, firearm restoration,  trigger/action jobs, custom firearm work, barrel chambering, action blueprinting, barrel threading for adapters/muzzle brakes, recoil pad installation, and TIG welding. Metal finishing services include bluing  (rust, hot, charcoal, fire, Belgium), parkerizing, Cerakote finishing,  case hardening (bone and wood charcoal). All of the work is done by hand  and in house. 

 Please use my contact page to reach me and discuss any potential work and/or receive an estimate for services.

In  2017, I was awarded Professional Membership into the American Custom Gun  Markers Guild in Metalsmithing, Metal Finishing, and Restoration. A  truly humbling honor and dream I've had for many years.
