About Us

shop 2.jpg

My name is Chris Lukenbaugh, and I am the owner and operator of Aquila. I have always been a gun enthusiast, and I began coating guns and performing gunsmith services part-time in 1991. I have been applying various types of coating systems since 1982, and in 1990 I started doing small machining jobs for a machine shop that produced high-speed turbine couplings. I realized that I could utilize these skills to produce some of the most precise rifles available. In 1986, I received a Bachelor of Science in Accounting and worked for a Fortune 100 company. I had enough, retired, and moved on to producing high-end rifles and industrial machining full-time. Aquila holds a Class 7 Manufacturing FFL.

I personally shoot and inspect every rifle that leaves our doors. If it doesn't perform, it doesn't leave the shop. When purchasing a rifle from Aquila, you can rest assured that it is machined to exact tolerances and performs flawlessly.

 

 

 

Sincerely,

Chris Lukenbaugh

Our Name "Aquila"

Aquila means "Eagle" in Latin. 

"But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.  They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint."
Isaiah 40:31 (NIV)

Aquila was also the name of a tentmaker who worked (Acts 18:2-3) and traveled (Acts 18:18) with Paul.  Paul praised Aquila and his wife, Priscilla for risking their lives for him. (Romans 16:3-4)
