    He has a solid reputation. His work I've seen looked good and was done for an amazingly reasonable price.

    I believe he injured himself in a fall a month or two ago.

    Did my trigger work as well. Very good and very reasonable. Had my trigger done and back to me in less than 2 weeks.

    I have been sending work to Phillip Crenwelge for many years. I have never had the first complaint. I highly recommend him!

    Had him adjust a BT-99 trigger for me, was at over 7 lbs. ask him for a 3 lb.

    pull. It came back in 2-wks at 3 lbs. no creap no over pull.

    He is very good.

    He is famous for his trigger work, but he does it all. Resoldered ribs on 2 of my old 101s without needing rebluing. They are as good as new. Tightened up an old Ljutic 2 bbl set. Tight as new.

    Phillip is the best IMHO.

    I left him 9 guns at the MN state shoot a couple of years ago Had to leave and come back in a couple days. Guns ranged from Baker, LC Smith, Fox SxS's to P gun and M12. All were done and ready to go as promised when I came back.
    Made part for the Baker SxS and had firing pins on hand for the LC. Great to
    work with.
    Thanks Phil.

    I'm very annoyed that he moved to TX. He used to winter 45 minutes away!

    Sent him an 1100 trigger to be reworked and he couldn't get to it when he promised, so he reworked it and returned it to me ....no charge. Trigger is tight and light.
