Get prompt, efficient solutions to get your firearm working perfectly

The primary responsibility of a firearms repair technician, often called a gunsmith, is to ensure the safe function of firearms through careful repair and maintenance in strict accordance with laws.


Typical repair and maintenance includes the removal of corrosion, diagnosis of firing and trigger problems, and the replacement of worn barrels, which if left unchecked can lead to a loss of accuracy on the firing range or while hunting. Many owners also request after-market customizations including new telescopes, according to the American Gunsmithing Institute (AGI).


However, it can be difficult to find a reputable gunsmith in your area, or you might prefer to do the work yourself. The trained firearms repair Experts on JustAnswer are available to you no matter where you live or what time of day or night you have a question.


You can even ask follow-up questions, and approve payment only when you're completely satisfied.
