Professional Gunsmithing Courses

Learn professional gun repair from master gunsmithing instructors.

Introduction to AGI’s Gunsmithing Courses

Experience the sheer joy of learning real gunsmithing from Master gunsmiths for about one-fifth the cost of attending a campus based school. AGI’s Professional Gunsmithing Courses are designed to give you the ability to repair and customize pistols, revolvers, rifles, shotguns and rimfires.

Our Promise To You

When you have finished one of our professional Gunsmithing courses you will be able to pick up any firearm, even one you have never seen before, determine what type of system it uses and analyze the problem and make the appropriate repair.

We teach you how all the systems work, the mystery and confusion will be gone. You will actually understand what the problem is and why you are fixing it in a particular way. Then you will have become a real gunsmith.

No other school, campus-based or otherwise offers this level of instruction.

In fact, serious students graduating from campus-based gunsmithing schools have been enrolling in our program because “they didn’t teach me that!.” Why is that the case?… because only the American Gunsmithing Institute teaches you step-by-step how all the major firearm systems work and we are the only Gunsmithing school with Master Gunsmith Bob Dunlap as a senior instructor. It’s our goal to give you the highest quality professional gunsmithing training we can.

All the advantages of a campus-based course, but faster and with the ability to review information anytime you want.

Our courses are designed to give you the advantages of a campus-based program with none of the disadvantages. In fact, many of our students say that our video-based course is better because they can “replay” the instructor anytime a difficult project comes in. In fact, researchers say that we retain less than 12% of what we learn in a classroom. That’s why we’ve designed our course to be sure every step is clearly demonstrated and rapidly available for your review when needed.

We won’t waste your time . . .

In a classroom setting, you usually only get 20 to 30 minutes of solid instruction per hour, at best, after the teacher is finished taking roll, telling a joke, answering questions, and teaching to the level of the slowest person in the class. With our course’s, there is no wasted time. On top of that, you can’t see the details and close-ups that we show you, even from the very first row in a classroom.

Study at your own pace.

We remove all those learning barriers. You move at your pace with the ability to review at any time, and there is no time limit to complete the course. And because the entire course is taught on video, note taking is not required so you can focus on the instruction.
