A gunsmith is a person who repairs, modifies, designs, or builds guns. This occupation differs from an armorer. A gunsmith does factory level repairs, renovation (such as applying metal finishes), and makes modifications and alterations for special uses. Gunsmiths may also apply carvings, engravings and other decorative features to an otherwise finished gun. The environment in which all this takes place often varies depdending on the specific locality, with some gun stores featuring one or a handful of individuals while others resemble large scale specialty shops.
Looking for a gunsmith in the Oregon City, Portland, Salem area that can repair a Ruger black powder revolver. Purchased new in the '90's, gave it to my son and he says it will not fire because of bad springs??? Have not seen it in decades but want it in firing order before I die. I need the...

looking for advice, input on what...
I want to have my K frame 648 drilled and taped for a scope mount...I know it’s a pretty straight forward job, but I'd hate to have an inexperienced well intentioned person drilling holes in a quality firearm. The only smith I knew in Port Angeles retired sometime back. Any recommendations?
I'm new to the forum and am about to kick off a couple of projects. The one I'm really struggling with is finding a quality gunsmith who has experience with the Winchester model 88.
Thank you in advance for any help you can provide!
Hi guys, so I'm in the Hillsboro / Forest Grove area and I recently added a Hi Power to my collection. I am in need of a gunsmith who can handle barrel fitting, and trigger and hammer install. I have to send the slide out for milling so I can add new sights, but if they can do that also it'll...

2: Can I register the LLC after I get my FFL??? That way, if I don't get approved to have an...
