Hi.  Thanks for visiting my web page!  My name is Shawn Fowler. I am an AK gunsmith/builder with a Class 07 FFL/02 SOT.

Fowler Precision Arms is a small business, owned and operated solely by me with the purpose of producing the most historically correct, precisely built, functionally reliable and accurate Kalashnikov pattern rifles and pistols possible.

I have no employees, so I alone hand build, tune and test fire every Fowler Precision Arms (FPA) firearm that I sell.

I don't build a lot of rifles, but I build each one with the goal that there will be none other made that is better or more reliable!

I build each one with the same attention to detail and dedication as I would if I were participating in a competition with it, building it for my own historical collection or defending myself and my family with it.

Thanks for considering Fowler Precision Arms for the best Kalashnikov pattern, hand-built Kalashnikov pattern rifle you can own!


I apologize, but I am no longer taking custom builds, parts kit builds or gunsmithing.


I have 6 to 8 months of work to finish but please periodically check on my sales page, Gunbroker.com or Armslist for listings of rifles I have built.  They will be sporatic for the next few months, but I hope to have them available on a regular basis soon.  Thanks!

Please feel free to contact me by email, phone or text, preferably in the afternoon or evening Monday-Friday. I have no employees, so in the interest of getting work done, I likely will not respond right away.  Please leave a message and I will get back with you as soon as possible. It may take a few days.  If you do not leave a message I likely will not respond.  I am happy to answer any questions that I can and look forward to hearing from you.  I just need to limit my time on the phone so that I can keep my lead times as short as possible.  Thanks for understanding!
