A. G. Genez is alway a favorite on this forum. I just finished a pretty detailed examination of the life and business of one of America's finest gunsmiths! I began examining him again after he came up in the Pinfire Game Gun thread and have spend many many hours over the past couple weeks finding everything I could on this man, his life, his company and his successors.

It really is worth taking 12 minutes to read this through!

Wonderful research. I thought Genez was a French name, but had no information about his background. Even Jerry Swinney’s multi-volume work on New York gunmakers completely misses him. Thanks so much.

Later-----I have been reminded by a friend that Genez does appear in Jerry Swinney's epic 5 volume work on New York gunmakers. Vol. 5 contains the New York City gunmakers in alphabetical order and information and fine photos appear on pages 177-183.

A great read, thanks for sharing. This is a maker that has long been overlooked and under-appreciated.

From my Genez files, I believe this is one of his dual fire conversions.

Interesting read, I especially enjoyed the bit about the neighbors contacting the health department about safety concerns. Some people are so uptight.
