I’ve had 3 M&P triggers done,4 sets of night sights, 2 RMRs installed on my Glocks, slide serrations, refinishing and some rifle work done by Doug. I can’t say enough good things about this guy and his work. He is my “go to” guy. There are plenty of companies that are closer to me but I would much rather take the drive to see Doug. Outstanding job and he has a customer for life!
Doug at ATEI has done work on a S&W M&P9 for me. He installed a RMR site, did a trigger job and refinish. I was so impressed with the quality and craftsmanship that I had him do a M&P9c. It too is perfect and functions flawlessly!
Doug coated my slide installed RMR, co witness sights, and slide serrations on all sides and top. The gun is amazing and everyone who sees it compliments on it. I carry it for a duty gun and it is flawless, and unbeatable on target acquisition.
Totally blown away by the slide work done by ATEi! The quality of workmanship and functional enhancements I received are second to none! I couldn’t be happier and can’t wait to send you my next slide! THANKS DOUG!!!!!
I tend not to impress easily, but a brief tour of ATEi and some time with Doug was enough to convince me of his diligent craftsmanship. The work done on my M&P is of the highest quality.
I’ve had my fully converted M&P 9 in hand for about 3 months now (Half Top Cocking Serrations, Front Side Cocking Serrations, Slide Re-Coated w. Nickle-Boron, Trigger Job, and Full Grip Stippling). Man, WHAT A PRODUCT! This thing runs superbly in the dry, wet, muddy, and bloody (last not fully tested… thank God!) This is the pistol S&W SHOULD HAVE MADE! Doug does a Hell of a job!
Called in a few times for an ETA and the dates given were always very general and kept getting pushed back. I don’t really mind it taking so long but it would have been nice to have gotten a more concise answer. *Response from ATEi, Shipped to us around Dec 7th 2013, completed and shipped back in 4 weeks on Jan 6th 2014 even though we took time off for the holidays. Lead times are about 2-6 weeks.*
Had a vision when customizing My Springfield XD.45c, ATEi helped bring that to life. I was looking for functionality along with a little flare. After the slide work I had it Cerakoted in FDE & installed some XS sights. Took it to the range & worked one handed drills. the serrations make it 10x easier, along with doing routine “press checks”. Up top of just looking Damn Sexy!
I sent two firearm slides (Glock & M&P),to have them finished in black nitride, got them back in 8 days. I was able to speak to Dough twice. He was professional, respectful and answered all my questions.
Doug is a phenomenal machinist. I couldn’t be happier with the setup we settled on – between the functional enhancements and the excellent slide work from Doug at ATEi , this gun is truly a mesh between what shooters are always asking me for and what I’ve always wanted.
