Sighting In Rifle Optics
Cajun Arms can sight your rifle in for you at our rifle gunsmith shop in West Chester, PA. Don’t have access to a range? Are you too busy? No matter the reason, we can help! We will take your rifle to our range and dial it in perfectly for you. Please note that the owner may need to supply ammunition for unusual or hard-to-find calibers. Another consideration is that the point of impact can be affected by poor trigger control, cheek weld, etc. We are firearms experts, professionals, gunsmiths, and actively train citizens in safe, defensive firearm classes. That same level of professionalism will be utilized on your firearm so you know there are years of experience behind sighting in your optic.
Replacing Uppers & Rifle Barrel Replacements
Do you want to shoot 458 SOCOM, 300 Blackout, or some other cartridge out of your AR15 or AR10? Cajun Arms can help by selecting and assembling components that will meet your needs, all while keeping your existing lower receiver and parts. We can also replace your rifle barrel if it’s shot out, and we can even completely change the caliber of your rifle! Contact us to discuss your specific needs/goals, and we can set you up with a new barrel or help you make two guns in one!Ask an Expert
Cerakote & Painting
We can protect and personalize your rifle with a Cerakote custom gun finish. We can paint patterns on your rifle, add camouflaging to your rifle, or - if you want to keep it simple - apply a single color to your rifle. With dozens of colors and color-combos to choose from, we can completely customize your gun to truly make it one-of-a-kind. Coating your rifle will make it look like new and offer impact and heat resistance, finish hardness, corrosion prevention, and chemical resistance. Cerakote custom rifle finishes are as tough as your firearm. Based on your comfort level, Cajun Arms can completely strip and reassemble the gun or you can bring it to us after you strip it. Either way, contact us today for a quote on personalizing your rifle at Cajun Arms!
Free Float Barrels/Glass Bedding
Are you looking to wring out more accuracy out of your rifle? One great way to achieve the gun’s maximum potential is bedding the action and free-floating the barrel. Let Cajun Arms tweak it up. We use an epoxy-based material and mold it on the rifle stock to fill in any gaps that exist between the stock and the receiver. We utilize metal plates for the action screw if we can as well. We create a stiffer action for your rifle and prevent it from deforming under pressure. The harmonics of your weapon are improved, and a repeatable, neutral stress is more likely.Ask a Question
Rifle Handguard or Forend Replacement
Do you have an outdated, old-school AR platform? Does the rifle shoot well? Then let Cajun Arms set you up with a new forend. We will remove your front sight post/gas block and install a new low-profile block. We will help you select the proper length flat top forend and install it. Cajun Arms will pop on some new iron sights and you have a rifle with an entirely different feel and look!
New Rifle Stock Replacement
Here at Cajun Arms, we love to work with wood (and plastics). We can take your worn-out rifle and re-stock it with a modern laminate or composite stock. Want to have your daddy’s old Remington 700 accept detachable mags? Let us set you up with a modern solution that will probably have you shoot better too! Most new stocks will include free floating the barrel and having the action fully bedded. See above.
Rifle Trigger Enhancement
Allow Cajun Arms to help you take your shooting to a new level. We can perform trigger work on many styles of rifles. Often, a new cartridge or assembly is a smarter choice than using the old trigger as a starting point. If you're not a trained gunsmith, we’d advise that you do not work on or change your existing trigger in any way. At best, you’ll damage the part, cause it to wear out more quickly, and void the warranty. At worst, you can create a point of failure that can lead to an inert rifle or one that is prone to misfires. In either case, you’ve created a safety hazard that puts everyone at risk any time you use your rifle. The professional gunsmiths at Cajun Arms in West Chester can help with your rifle trigger enhancement. Contact us today.Send A Message
Deep Detail Rifle Cleaning

We also offer safety and informational tutorials on how to clean your unique rifle yourself. No matter your rifle cleaning needs, contact Cajun Arms today.

Antique Rifle Restoration
Cajun Arms can restore or refurbish your antique rifles. If you have an older rifle and you are not sure what it is worth, please contact us. We can help you determine whether it should be refinished, restored, cleaned, or left as is. Depending on your rifle, making all these decisions can be difficult, but the antique rifle gunsmiths at Cajun Arms in West Chester are here to help. We will examine your antique rifle, help you determine its value, and make recommendations from there. Collectors are after value above all else, age is not always the biggest factor. They also take into account your rifle's condition, rarity, provenance, and overall desirability to determine its estimated value. We have seen many antique firearms and rifles that just require a light cleaning and nothing else! Light is the keyword here as we do not want to remove the patina - or what remains of the original rifle’s finish. Another crucial task we will perform as part of our rifle restoration process is to do what needs to be done to stabilize rust. Let’s take the guessing out of antique rifle restoration and contact us for an assessment today!Gunsmith Appointment
