– LEAD GUNSMITH –

Jeremiah Pratt

Growing up in Michigan, Jeremiah spent many years enjoying the outdoors and most of those days involved firearms. Whether he was sighting in a rifle, practicing handgun fundamentals, shooting clays, or hunting that big whitetail buck, he knew one thing: Firearms were his passion and he wanted them to be his career one way or another.

While attending college for Mechanical Engineering he heard about the Colorado School of Trades and their ability to produce some of the finest Gunsmiths in America. The decision was simple, he left Michigan and pursued his dreams. At CST he excelled in the machine shop and specialized in 1911 building. After graduating from CST he was offered a job with Fortress Arms in Texas as a Gunsmith and custom 1911 builder where he spent 5 years perfecting his trade, grew the company, and built up a reputation in the community. He now joins Saddle River Range bringing a modern take on the Gunsmithing world specializing in custom 1911’s, Precision Boltguns, Glock grip work, slide cuts and Cerakote.

.

I recently bought a rifle that hadn’t been shot since the previous owner got it 20+ years ago. I wanted to get it checked out by a gunsmith just to be sure it was safe for me to shoot. After contacting many different gunsmiths and getting no reply, I decided to visit Saddle River Range. The gunsmith took my rifle apart right if front of me, checking to make sure every little thing was in good condition. He even shot it to make sure everything functioned properly. I was in and out of the range within fifteen minutes. I couldn’t have asked for better service. I will definitely be back.
