Professional Gunsmithing – Level 1

Improve your gunsmithing skills and learn design, function and repair so you can start maintaining and repairing firearms.

It is our belief that you can’t fix it unless you really understand how it works. Many so-called gunsmiths simply throw new parts at a problem until they hope it is fixed. We teach the why and the how. When you fix a gun, you’ll know you really fixed it.
