Taking care of your gun is important. There are many steps in doing the job right, such as completing necessary repairs, cleaning the parts, and making sure you’re keeping your gun in top condition. One of the best ways to get all this done is by working with a gunsmith.

What Exactly is a Gunsmith?

Here are a few services that gunsmiths typically offer:

  • Estimates: Some gunsmiths have the knowledge and skills to accurately provide you with an estimate for costs and time. Instead of working by hourly rates, you can pay specifically for the labor and parts that you require from a gunsmith. This can be beneficial if you don’t like receiving an hourly estimate that ends up being more than you expected.
  • Repairs: Once you’ve chosen a gunsmith, the next step is to let him or her handle the repairs you need for your gun. Sometimes repairs are easy to detect, while other guns might have to be disassembled, inspected, and fire tested to find the problem. Then, repairs and/or replacements will be made to fix your gun.
  • Various wait times: Unsurprisingly, there may be many people visiting a certain gunsmith at a time. This can result in long wait times, are the backlog of pre-existing work orders grows. However, if you need your gun serviced sooner, you may be able to request an accelerated work order to move your gun further up the list.
