Welcome To Pioneer Gun Works!
*An American Born & Run, Family Business!*
Pioneer Gun Works is celebrating 11 Years of offering the finest in American made high performance parts for Uberti Model 73 & 66, Winchester Model 73, and Marlin Model 94 competition rifles.
All of our PGW performance parts are designed and manufactured in our own facility right here in Oregon!
We are happy to answer any questions that you may have about any of our products, so feel free to call. We're also very good at coaching customers through any difficulties that they may have during installation. However, you may be able to find the answer to your question on the F.A.Q. page, so you might try looking there before you call.
A Word about Fitment of our Uberti Competition Rifle Parts
The parts that we have designed for use in Uberti made Model 1866 & 1873 rifles are designed (for the most part) for rifles made after 2000. However, there are also some rifles made by Uberti back in the 1980s and 1990s that our parts will work in also. Uberti made some of those older rifles differently than the newer rifles, and that affects the fitment of some of our competition rifle parts in those rifles. For example, Navy Arms model 1866 carbines (made by Uberti) have internal dimensions that prohibit our short stroke kits, carriers, and many other PGW parts from working in those rifles. So, if you have an older Uberti rifle and want to know if our parts will fit, give us a call and we may be able to tell you over the phone if they will work.
Remember, you can always return any parts for refund or exchange, provided the parts have not been modified in any way, and are in like new condition.
Three levels of Competition Ready rifles are now available at three price levels
We know that different shooters have different budgets when it comes to how much they can or want to spend on a new competition ready rifle.
If you're a new shooter on a budget, or just want to get a good competitive rifle at a lower price, we've got you covered.
If you're an experienced shooter who want to be able to shoot with the best of them without your equipment slowing you down, we've got you covered.
If you want the best rifle money can buy that has all the bells and whistles, we've got you covered.

PGW Performance Parts for Winchester Model 1873 Rifles
*Notice* All of our parts made for Winchester rifles are designed to fit into the new Winchesters made by Miroku, not the original Winchester rifles
Winchester Short Stroke Kit with Carrier
Our short stroke kits for the Winchester model 73 rifle come with a light weight aluminum carrier, and sells for $235.00. The lever throw is the same as that of our Super short stroke kit made for Uberti rifles.
Our Winchester short stroke kit will not work with Winchester's carrier. After testing Winchester's carrier, we have found that there are dimensional issues that interfere with the quality performance of our short stroke kit.
Winchester Light Firing Pin Extension
Our new Winchester light firing pin extension replaces the stock firing pin extension with all of it's safety devices, improving performance and reliability of your rifle.
PGW's New Action Springs
Here at Pioneer Gun Works, we have developed a brand new concept in light weight springs for your Uberti model 1873 or model 1866 rifle's lever and lifter arm. Our "Action Springs" are a high tech 21st century improvement for a 19th century design.
While the piano wire type springs have been an improvement over the stock Uberti springs, they are a hassle to install and adjust for the proper feel. That's because bending wire to a specific shape while maintaining a high level of dimensional and geometric precision isn't possible.
What we have done, was to machine a mounting base and pivot arm from high strength steel, attaching them together with a hardened steel dowel pin at the hinge point, and used a tensioning rod to apply the correct amount of tension to give you a light lever feel while assuring positive function. Once installed, spring tension does not fade, the spring assemblies do not move, and there is no fitting or adjusting to do. And the mounting bases are tapped with the correct metric thread, so they will accept your Uberti screws or our heat treated screws.
Our Action Springs are the highest quality, most precise springs that you can buy for your rifle's lever and lifter arm tensioning needs.
Our Action Springs are designed for use with PGW short stroke kits. Installation of Action Springs with NON-PGW lifter arm will require modification to that lifter arm.
Available now for $60.00 a pair.

Pioneer Gun Works Teams Up With
We are pleased to announce that Badman Bullets are now available through our website. We've just added a selection of cowboy caliber bullets to our online store and a new page has been added to our website to show the bullets that are available.
We have been asked many times to recommend a high quality bullet that will feed well through the custom rifles that we build and have a high degree of accuracy as well. Badman Bullets easily meets both of those requirements.
Stronger & Smoother Super Short Stroke Kit
It's been considered common knowledge up until now that a shorter lever throw resulted in a stiffer action. That is no longer true. In 2011, we re-engineered our super short stroke kit to make it just as smooth as our standard short stroke kit! So, there is no longer a trade off between length of lever throw and smoothness of operation. It can be used with confidence in 45's as well as 38's.
We've also strengthened the rear toggle link by closing the open end of the channel that the lever pin rides in. These changes make our Super Short Stroke Kit the smoothest and strongest that you can buy!
Super or Standard Short Stroke Kit - $170.00
Improved Aluminum Carrier
In 2012, we modified our small caliber aluminum carriers to make it easy to reload over the top. When you have a stage where you need to reload your rifle, simply open the lever, grab your reload round from your belt, place it on top for the carrier, push down, and close the lever. There's no need to reload through the gate. Reloading over the top is much faster!
PGW Performance Light Weight Carrier $65.00

We have a new kit available that will allow your model 1897 shotgun to hold six rounds instead of the stock capacity of five! Perfect for Wild Bunch! Easy to install and comes with fully illustrated installation instructions.
