Gunsmith FAQs

Can my family member or friend pick up my gun for me?
No. We cannot release a firearm to anyone other than the person who dropped it off.

Can you improve the function of my gun?
Depending on the model, we can usually make improvements. Each gun is different, and we will discuss what you want and what the gun is capable of.

Can you install new sights?
Yes, we have the tools to properly install sight on most popular handguns and rifles.

Can you sight in my gun?
Yes, we can adjust your sights on our 25-yard range. For longer distances, we will get things as close as possible and as always, the owner is responsible for the final adjustments to suit his or her shooting style.

How fast is your turn around time?
That depends on the work required and the availability of parts. Please keep in mind that we take in a high volume of guns and quality work takes time.

I have a family heirloom that I would like to pass down. Can you fix it?
If parts are available and the gun is not damaged beyond repair, we can usually restore it to working condition.

What are your policies regarding custom work?
We work closely with our clients to ensure they receive the high-quality outcome they expect. We will NOT do any work that we feel compromises the safe function of a firearm, nor will we do anything that we feel is legally questionable.
