Of our customers own multiple GCPD rifle systems
Of new customers come via referral from other satisficed clients
Here at GCPD Arms we are here to build your long range shooting dreams. The order process of every rifle, with every client, starts with an in depth discussion of exactly what the client wants to do and achieve with their new custom rifle. This beginning is critical to ensuring that our clients make a long term investment for their perfectly configured rifle specific to their needs and requirements.
With every rifle individually built our customer know that they are not buying something that is a gun shops left over stock and doesn't necessarily suit their needs.

This is a truest form of return on investment and is something we are proud of
