My name is Matt Cheely and I’m the owner and gunsmith at Cheely Custom Gunworks. I am a 3 division Grand Master in USPSA, and winner of multiple major USPSA matches. I have a Bachelors Degree in Product Design and previously worked as a Performance & Emissions Engineer for a diesel engine manufacturer.

I decided that in order to accomplish my goals of designing and manufacturing some of the best pistols, I’d have to be a full time gunsmith & designer for myself. The products and firearms you see here are some of the results of that goal. I’m never finished improving, so keep checking back for great new parts & guns.
