Armorer Services

Craftsmanship and Detail

Republic Outdoor is proud to offer Armorer Services for our customers. We work with JB Custom – Custom Manufactured Firearms, which is owned and operated by the talented Jim Breedlove. After working with JB for many years and seeing his work, both professionally and personally, we’re excited to provide this level of craftsmanship and detail that is nearly impossible to find elsewhere. JB’s experience spans more than twenty years, including being the Lead Instructor for the Marine Corps’ National Match, Special Operations, and Inter-Service Match Weapons, and being an Armorer for National Level Military and Intelligence Organizations requiring only the highest levels of workmanship. We’re proud to now offer that level of expertise and craftsmanship, whether it’s a minor change or a complete, specialized build.
