Custom-built M1s are a special type of firearm, built within fairly narrow boundaries in terms of features and qualities that customers expect to see. Many times these features are duplicated by the tool-literate shooter with good results; the rifles are functional and provide most of what the average shooter wants.
What makes a DGR custom built rifle worth the expense? Is it just the cosmetics? Is it just a fee for the cachet of a recognized signature on the rifle? Or is there something in the combination of mechanical refinement and esthetic craftsmanship that truly does set a master’s work above and beyond the hobbyist? DGR understands the combination of esthetics, accuracy and function and combines these in the building or re-building of M1s.
The hobbyist can purchase the same barrel, stock, springs and parts, but most do not know what it takes to fine tune these parts into an M1 that will achieve its full potential. This is where DGR excels. With almost two decades of experience in finishing and building M1s, DGR has accumulated the tools and knowledge required to combine these features into exceptional firearms. Our experience can instantly be seen in the metal and wood finishing aspects of DGR’s M1 building. DGR has perfected the finishing of the M1s wood and metal far beyond what is generally seen in the industry or produced by the hobbyist today.
From Camp Perry to local shooting clubs, DGR rifles have been winning M1 matches. With careful analysis of trends in the industry and feedback from shooters DGR continues to push the envelope while keeping the needs of the shooter in mind. When the US State Department needed parade rifles, they contracted with DGR. Customers have recognized DGR’s craftsmanship and have helped to make DGR a leader in the industry.
