Phil Flack

P.F. Custom Guns
18 Sunset Drive
Asheville, NC 28806
Phone: (828) 252-9487
Fax: (828) 254-7108

Phil is working a 1911 for me right now, and I've heard nothing but excellent reviews on his work. Just call or e-mail, he's quite a nice fellow.

If you get to mapping his address, make sure you use the full address with the ZIP code. There is a Sunset Dr. near downtown Asheville that some maps will identify as that address, but it's not correct. His shop is located at his residence in the Leicester area, off of Mt. Carmel Rd.


And I completely forgot...

I bought a Remington 870 from him a couple of years ago. It was a former police gun that he refinished. It looks better than most any new 870 out today and the action is slicker than hot butter on a glass plate.

See here: Remington 870 Police
