About Us

Tom Hanson


My name is Tom Hanson. Since 1976 I have worked as a gunsmith, designer, and machinist. In 1976 I graduated from The Colorado School of Trades in Lakewood, Colorado. After completing my training in Colorado, I worked for a few years as a gunsmith in Fargo, North Dakota in a custom gun shop as a factory warranty gunsmith for Browning, Colt, Remington, Harrington and Richardson and Winchester, until heading east to work as a gunsmith for George Numrich Jr., owner of Numrich Arms in the Hudson Valley of New York state. Early in my employment there, George started accepting my designs for products and replacement parts. In 1980 I opened a home machine shop to produce, as a subcontractor, some of the parts and products they sell.

Times have changed and the shop has outgrown its' part time function with the addition of state-of-the-art CNC machining capabilities and traditional lathes, polishing, bluing and related shop equipment. In July, 1999, I left Numrich and Hudson Trading Post Ltd was opened. We were located in Saugerties, NY.

In 2010 I moved the shop to Las Cruces, NM as Tom Hanson, Las Cruces Gunsmith. And can now provide the Southwest with excellent gunsmith services. Featured products are a patented tactical "no gunsmithing" sight for the Remington 870 shotgun. and the "Recoil Tamers" custom made muzzle break. I offer Cad-Cam design services together with complex part duplication using CNC equipment. Also "state of the art" Laser engraving and precision welding. We services old and new guns, provide general and custom CNC machining, products and designs. Whatever your machining or gun needs, just give me a call. Welcome to the Rio Grande.

Our Mission:

1. To provide a full range of gunsmith solutions. We can supply a large selection of gun parts for most new and obsolete guns. Call or e-mail me and I will respond with an immediate quote.
