“Exceptionally Accurate and Reliable Custom Pistols”

As of September 2012 I will be working exclusively on some projects and teaching classes in several locations around the country.

This means that I will not be able to take on any gun projects but plan to have more announcements about classes on this site in the near future

Bob Marvel Guns started in 1981 to do one thing - to build exceptionally accurate and reliable custom pistols.My Custom Gun shop has the reputation for building some of the finest handguns in the world.  Every one of my pistols exemplifies my passion for building exceptional guns and my desire to improve the industry's standards.  My pistols have often been referred to as "artful exceptional masterpieces that shoot accurately and reliably over time". I maintain the utmost personal and professional integrity in that  none of my custom built pistols leave my shop unless they meet my high standards.  As evidence of the pride I take in my craftsmanship, I provide a life time warranty for all of my custom built pistols (excluding customer damages, modifications made by the customer or a 3rd party, damages incurred due to the elements, and barrel life span).

Today, my custom pistols are used by some of the top competition shooters in the world.   My custom pistols have set over 40 national records and have also won over 20 nationaltitles in bullseye competition.   Pistols from my custom shop are also owned by novice shooters and discriminating collectors who simply want the best custom, accurate and reliable handgun. In addition, I  rebuild or customize a variety of models for personal protection and concealed carry, and rebuild pistols for owners who want to improve the guns they already shoot.

My most popular model is the 1911 .45 caliber match pistol which has a guaranteed accuracy of 1.5" or less at 50 yards.  To achieve this level of precision, each gun is hand built and ransom-rest tested, using 10 shot groups at an outside range.  Each Bob Marvel pistol also undergoes a 15 point quality control process to validate the gun's reliability. The testing is certified and test targets are included with each purchase.

I encourage you to peruse my site to learn more about the various types of pistols that I can build for you and my other custom work.  In addition, please take your time to explore my other products; such as, the NEW Bob Marvel Custom Pro II 1911 .22 Conversion and Bob Marvel Custom Oil.  If you would like to be placed on the waiting list for my NEW .22 Conversion, please email me at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
