My Mission

Fowler Precision Arms (FPA) is a small family run manufacturer of custom firearms in Wilsall Montana.  My mission is to build extremely high quality precision competition and hunting rifles along with AK (Kalashnikov) style rifles from parts kits that are eminently functional, precise and accurate.  All rifles will be headspaced utilizing proper gauges, function tested and test fired.  I will use extreme attention to detail and the proper tools, gauges and jigs in order to produce a rifle that is very precise in it's manufacture and tolerances.  This will result in a precision rifle that will be extremely accurate.  A precision rifle will not be released for sale if a target cannot be provided with it, demonstrating it's capability to produce a three shot group that is 1/2 minute of angle (MOA) at 100 yards or smaller with match grade ammunition.  Many will produce much smaller groups utilizing the proper ammunition and shooting techniques.  No AK style rifle will leave the shop unless it functions absolutely flawlessly in the Kalashnikov tradition.  Your satisfaction is guaranteed.  If a product I produce is not functional, precise and accurate due to a manufacturer's defect, I will do everything in my power to make it so, at my cost and labor.  Thank you for considering Fowler Precision Arms for your next rifle build.  I look forward to hearing from you soon.

My Promise

I’ll only work with the best materials available and provide a 100% satisfaction guarantee. I never compromise quality for time and give my clients realistic schedules that accommodate their lives. I strive for honest customer service, so there will be no surprise charges or fees. The final cost of work will be agreed upon prior to starting work on a project.

Who I Am


My name is Shawn Fowler.  I founded Fowler Precision Arms in 2018.  I do all of the production.  As a fifth generation resident of the Shields Valley in Montana, I have been around firearms since I was a child and have utilized one as part of my daily employment for most of my adult life.  I know the importance of a firearm that can be relied upon and refuse to make one that I would not trust my own life to.  I served as a scout platoon leader and intelligence officer in the 82nd Airborne Division in the mid 1990’s and performed various duties in the Army National Guard afterward.  I retired from the Montana Highway Patrol in 2018 where at various times throughout my career I served as a road trooper, honor guard member, criminal interdiction officer and canine handler.  I was a firearms instructor and armorer for 15 years and served as a district lead firearms instructor.  I live and work in Wilsall Montana where I enjoy building rifles and knives, hunting, fishing and hiking with my family.  I am also an unapologetic Orthodox Christian who relies greatly on God to guide me through my daily life, sinner that I am.  I look forward to working for you in the near future.
