Our Story

Customize your hunting rifle to fit you perfectly!

Salmon River Solutions was founded in 2020 by Ken Trapp and Zach Lester. With each of us having over a decade of experience as CNC machinists, we wanted to establish our own business following our passion for hunting and shooting sports.

We started the business when Ken’s father was retiring and selling his machine shop, and we got our first CNC machine. From there, we acquired a few more machines and started launching products! We go from a vague concept of something we want to make to a design, prototype, and finally, the manufacturing, all in-house.

On top of the products we manufacture and sell ourselves, we also offer contract manufacturing. We have multiple companies that we work with where we transform a vague idea they have into a fully functional part that we manufacture for them.

Ken Trapp

Born out of a passion for hunting.

I’m a second-generation machinist. I started machining when I was 19, working for my father. I always wanted to own my own business, but my father’s mold-making company wasn’t what I wanted to pursue. After bouncing around to a few shops over about a decade and working with Zach at two of these jobs, we decided we had similar goals and wanted to start SRS!

I spend a lot of time in the field, hunting, and shooting. I love that it’s my job now to develop and sell products that help people be successful, whether it’s on a hunt, in a shooting competition, or just a day out at the range.

The joy of designing and concepting.

Having worked in the machining industry for a decade I was tired of working for someone else. Having met Ken who felt similarly, the perfect opportunity arrived for us to start our own company. A little over a year later we were able to walk away from our current jobs and start Salmon River Solutions; working full time for ourselves. I have always enjoyed innovating and creating things. Our company gives me the enjoyment of designing, and bringing a design concept to life. 

When I am not working, I spend most of my time with my family and dogs. A wife, 3 boys, and two German Shepherds keep me busy. I’m looking forward to what the next few years bring to our company, and we appreciate all the support we have gained so far!

Frequently Asked Questions

Get your questions answered.

All higher end stocks such as AG Composites, Manners, McMillan, Mesa, Seekins, HS Precision, come with sling studs that are threaded 10-32. So select that option as a direct bolt on fastener option. AG composites has a “tripod option” that has two fasteners in front of the recoil lug area. These are 1/4-20. If you have a chassis or stock with M lok, please select M lok fasteners.

This depends on what stock, and what chambering you have. The easiest thing to do is measure from the center of your front action screw, to the end of your fore end, and add .375”. The rail that is closest to that in Overall Length will be your best choice.

No, we don’t personally ship outside of the US. We are always looking for international resellers though.

If you know your muzzle threads, and barrel diameter, use these to cross reference our muzzle brakes. In general, we recommend 4 or 5 ports for magnum rifles, or if you are looking to get the maximum recoil reduction. If you are looking to limit the overall length of your barrel, the two port Chub series is a good option.
