Phillip Reynolds

Title: CSA Guns Fine Guns Manager

Experience: 47 Years

Phil’s Bio:

It is with utmost admiration we provide the biography of Phil Reynolds, CSA Guns Fine Guns Manager. Phil Reynolds is nothing short of a true American Gunsmithing expert and a legend in the firearms industry. Phil has excelled in a multitude of fields in the firearms industry which began over 47 years ago. From the grassroots of cleaning and shipping guns, and doing bookwork for gunsmiths, all the while continuing his education at the local community college, machine shop, woodworking, and business classes.  At a young age, Phil also had his first FFL licenses and opened a small gunsmithing shop of his own where he did work for local gun shops.

Phil’s list of expert-level skills is beyond staggering and we couldn’t possibly pay tribute to all of them. Most of all, Phil has a passion for guns and helping guests which started many years ago and continued to grow. Phil’s love for old World American craftsmanship is what propelled CSA Guns to bring him on board to be their first in-house’ smith. His road to success included extra hours on the retail floor learning the trade of buying, selling, and trading. Through the inspiration of working with a great mentor, he learned appraisals, and evaluations of many firearms and their conditions.

Moving forward, for the next twenty years, Phil was recruited by Cabela’s as one of the original seven gun experts to start their “Gun Library” in several stores. For the next 10 years, he would serve as a manager, gun buyer, opening new stores and buying thousands of guns to build an empire of quality pre-owned firearms for them.

Phil’s appreciation for this historical raw skill, quality service, expertise, and contribution to the firearms industry is without a doubt part of the reason why David Drummond, Owner, and Founder of Carolina Sporting Arms/CSA Guns asked Phil to be his Fine Guns Manager. David knew Phil was needed to serve his members, guests, and mentor his CSA Guns team.

Not often do you get a chance to have a fine man for your business who supports your community, for generations to come. David knew, as with fine firearms, some opportunities are rare and don’t happen often and he recognized the value in Phil.

Although Phil was offered to run many shops across the country, it was the local people, the community of Charlotte, and the CSA Guns team that brought him back to NC. 

“We are honored to have Phil Reynolds serve you, as your “Fine Guns Manager” and industry expert!”
