Gunsmithing FAQs

What are the basic tools used for gunsmithing?

If there’s anything our guys like to talk about more than designing and building custom rifles – it’s gunsmith tools and supplies. Whether you’re customizing a grip or machining a rifle from the block up, here’s some basic tools of what you would need;

  • Gun vice: Unlike a standard bench vice, this has a few upgrades that make it a better choice for gunsmithing.
  • Rifle bedding kit: Also known as a glass bedding kit, this allows the fit between stock and action. Try not to go cheap on this one, either.
  • Hand tools: you will need a set of hand tools specifically for gunsmithing.

 

Does gunsmithing require a license or certification?

If you’re tinkering and customizing your own personally owned firearms, then no. Otherwise, you will be considered a dealer by the ATF if you “engage in the business of engraving, customizing, refinishing or repairing firearms” as a career or profession and a license is most assuredly required. Also, strict record-keeping is required by law.

 

How long has gunsmithing been around?

The first firearms were invented in China during the 1200’s, and gunsmithing – a term we use that encompasses alteration and improvement – followed close on its heels. The gun barrel was later designed and added in Europe. It wasn’t until around the 1400’s that official gunsmith guilds began to form; before that – in the Middle Ages – gunsmiths were part of the blacksmith guilds.  It can be argued that all the advancements of modern firearms through the centuries, from the sleek Desert Eagle to the 25mm GAU-12/U on the Harrier, were the result of custom gunsmithing, as opposed to outright invention. Either way, gunsmithing has extraordinary history worthy of this noble profession.
