About the Author
Steven Dodd Hughes entered the gunsmithing program at Trinidad College, Trinidad, CO in 1975. Since that time, he has dedicated his career to creating custom rifles and shotguns. He was first employed building semi-custom muzzleloaders. In 1980, Hughes started his own shop and continued making muzzleloading rifles and fowling pieces. Around 1989, he began stocking double shotguns and traditional single-shot rifles. Hughes currently completes about four and a half custom single-shot, lever action rifles or double action shotguns per year. Hughes also writes for several magazines.
