"The Gun Doctors" p. 69 June Field & Stream 2006-Written by David E. Petzal
I leaned about Mr. Freudenberg from Wayne van Zwoll, eminent hunter, rifleman, writer, and fitness lunatic, and I figure that if he can make a rifle good enough to keep van Zwoll happy, he should be good enough for the rest of you.
Freudenberg got his start in things mechanical by working for four years as a diesel doctor in the U.S. Marine Corps. Having survived that, he spent 1980 to 1983 at the Colorado School of Trades, where he logged 3,000 hours in various gunsmithing courses, deciding that what interested him most was rifles, and competition rifles in particular. He is also a highly experienced big game hunter, which is a good thing to be if you make hunting rifles.
In addition to doing a wide range of general gunsmithing jobs, Freudenberg accurizes rifles and builds them. He will make you a hunting rifle or a BR-50 rifle or a target rifle or a varmint rifle, and will by God shoot real good before it leaves his shop. Mainly his target-shooter clients influence his thinking, because for them, if a rifle is not a world-beater, you might as well stay home and watch reruns of Lassie. Freudenberg works solo and does not require an appointment . Freudenberg’s Custom Rifles, 425-347-3986; freudscustomrifles.com
