About Me and My Practice

My name is Walter Frear and I am the owner / operator of W. FREAR INNOVATIONS LLC, a fulltime Gunsmithing Practice dedicated to improving the performance and appearance of your firearms.

I have been working fulltime as a professional Gunsmith for over 20 years after graduating from the Colorado School of Trades' Gunsmithing program with honors in 1997. I also hold factory certifications from the Smith & Wesson® Academy and Glock Firearms®.

I specialize in action jobs, and trigger jobs, as well as perform general repairs, and custom work on most rifles, shotguns, and handguns. My dedicated work space is outfitted with state of the art machining equipment which allows me to blend old world craftsmanship with modern manufacturing techniques to offer you the highest level of quality and performance when servicing your firearms or building your next custom project.

If this is something you desire from a Gunsmithing practice, please feel free to contact me to schedule an in shop consultation.

In addition to my gunsmith work, I am the inventor and manufacturer of the COLLIMATOR ELEVATOR ™, a firearm collimating tool currently sold by BROWNELLS INC.® My invention was so unique that it was granted a Utility Patent by the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office, (Patent Number 6176019 Exp.).
