About Us

Rob Schauland, the founder and chief architect of Alchemy Custom Weaponry, is a world class gunsmith whose outstanding body of work and pedigree in the realm of handcrafted, custom firearms have earned him a devoted and loyal following.

One of the top 1911 experts in the field, his faithful yet innovative redesign and painstaking reproduction of the John Browning classic have resulted in a set of handmade, hand-fit guns that are every bit as precise and reliable as they are stunning.

A master of Old World Craftsmanship, Schauland’s artisanship is a prime example of American exceptionalism at its finest and is matched only by his superior work ethic, dedication to perfecting his craft, and adherence to uncompromising standards.
