> Gunsmiths > About Gunsmiths
Modern gunsmiths repair firearms and modify them to customer specifications using grinders, drill presses, lathes, saws, planers and millers. Many gunsmiths restore antique guns as well as convert stock rifles, and they may work for gun manufacturers, sporting goods stores, or be self employed. Gunsmiths must be experts in handling, operating, assembling, and adjusting firearms. They must be able to fit the action and barrel into the stock and attach optical sights, pistol grips, recoil pads, and choking devices.
Previous experience with woodworking, metalwork, and technical drawing are advantageous. Many gunsmiths complete formal studies or take an apprenticeship under a gun manufacturer to gain experience. Those with gunsmith training should have little problem finding employment, as there are relatively few trained gunsmiths to fit the demand.
