Whether you own one gun or entire safe of firearms, you know that having a reliable gunsmith can make all the difference when it comes to the way your guns perform. But what exactly does a gunsmith do, and how can they help with your guns? Here is a closer look into what a gunsmith does.

What Does a Gunsmith Do?

By definition, a gunsmith customizes, repairs, and assembles guns according to a gun owner’s specifications and needs. Most gunsmiths use a variety of intricate tools to do their work, and some even create their own to accomplish what their customers want. Gunsmiths must be licensed, and they must have extensive knowledge about firearms and firearm safety. Here are a few things a gunsmith can help you with:

  • Fix broken firing pins in your gun
  • Build a gun based on your specifications
  • Put your gun back together correctly
  • Fix damage or cracks to your gun’s metal or stock
  • Fix alignment and timing issues
  • Clean and lubricate your gun for improved performance
  • Provide replacement parts and install them
  • Add aftermarket parts to your gun to make it more comfortable to use
  • Fit barrels and remove corrosion, dents, and scratches
  • Repair barrels, modify triggers, and add accessories
  • And more!
