Lodgewood is a full service antique gun shop that offers investment-grade original guns, custom-built reproduction guns, gunsmithing services, and the largest collection of original 19th Century military firearm parts in the country. The company was founded in 1976 when Bill Osborne began selling gun parts out of the trunk of his car at local gun shows and shooting matches. He ran the business as a part time hobby until 2012 when he offered the company to David and Danielle Stavlo; a young husband and wife team who had been working for the shop for a number of years. As an accomplished gunsmith and writer, David has built guns for both museums and Hollywood, and his articles on 19th Century firearms have been featured in several publications. Danielle is both a meticulous office manager and accomplished photographer, whose photos have appeared in numerous books and magazines.
The Stavlos' began running the shop full-time in May of that year and have since expanded the company to include firearms sales and full restoration services and have modernized the business with the addition of a new website with detailed product descriptions and professional quality photographs.
Antique military weapons are their passion and that passion is reflected everything they do; whether that be parts sales, gun sales, simple repairs, or full restorations.
We do our best to treat every customer with respect as fellow history buffs and firearms enthusiasts. We offer a full range of products and services. From parts for original and reproduction guns, to in-house gunsmith and restoration work, to shooting supplies, we'll do our very best to fulfill all your shooting and restoration needs.
