Joshua and Joie Casto are the owners of The Casto Armory. The Casto Armory specializes in modern and custom made muzzleloaders. We furnish supplies and accoutrements for muzzleloaders. We also offer a full line of custom muzzleloader bullets.
Josh has been gunsmithing part-time for 22 years and has decided to make it a career. Josh has built many custom guns from automatic pistols to custom side lock muzzleloaders. He is a certified muzzleloader and rifle instructor.
Josh is very familiar with needs of competitive shooters, hunters, and recreational shooters. He has been active in shooting sports both as a competitor and a coach. He is currently a coach with the Tama County 4-H Club in rifle and muzzleloader disciplines.
Josh is originally from Ohio and is married to Joie (Staker) Casto. They have a son, Connor, and a daughter, Liesel, who are also very active in shooting sports.
The Casto Armory will be offering classes for black powder firearms in the near future.
If you have any questions about your firearms, come in and see us.
We accept consignments for black powder and antique firearms, as well as their accoutrements.
