My name is Chris Lukenbaugh and I am the owner and operator of Aquila.  I have always been a gun enthusiast and began coating guns and performing Gunsmith services part time in 1991. Over the years, I have worked with a Class 1 machinist and learned a great deal.  I realized that I could utilize these skills to produce some of the most precision rifles and pistols available.  I have been applying various types of coating systems since 1982 and in 1990 started doing small machining jobs for a friend of mine that owned a machine shop where they produced high speed turbine couplings.  During that time period I decided to get an accounting degree and have worked as a Credit Manager for various companies including a Fortune 500 company.

I have now left the desk job and moved on to producing high end hunting rifles and pistols full time.  My friend, the Class 1 machinist, now serves as our shop's consultant.  He ensures that we stay in tune with the latest techniques, tools and materials.

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.

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 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)
