Professional Gunsmithing Course

The American Gunsmithing Institute’s certified Professional Gunsmithing Course is offered at three levels:

Beginner – Level I
Intermediate – Level II

These courses teach you the complete design, function, and repair of firearms with step-by-step instructions. When you have finished the Professional Gunsmithing Course from the American Gunsmithing Institute, you will be able to pick up any gun or firearm and determine the system it uses, quickly diagnose the problem, and make the appropriate repairs.

We will teach you how the mechanical components of common firearms work together, enabling you to better diagnose the issue so that you understand the problem and why you are fixing it in a particular manner. No other gunsmithing school, campus-based or otherwise, offers this level of instruction. Even serious students graduating from campus-based gunsmithing schools have enrolled in our course to expand their knowledge and skills.

Just some of what you will learn:

  • Design, function, and repair of pistols and revolvers, shotguns, rifles and rimfires
  • Gunsmithing tools and how to use them
  • Firearms components and terminology
  • Advanced trigger jobs and systems
  • Firearms refinishing
  • Machining for gunsmithing
  • …and much, much more

Taking the FAST TRACK to Success!

Most people don’t have the time and money to spend years learning a new trade. Our Professional Gunsmithing Course is intended to put you on the Fast Track to success. Many people learn new skills faster through visual demonstration. It takes too long to read and visualize a subject as intricate as gunsmithing through a textbook. The American Gunsmithing Institute will show and tell you everything you need to know.

If you are like many of our students, you already have a career and a family and cannot afford to invest $15,000 to $20,000 per year, plus endure lost wages for the 2 to 3 years of full-time commitment studying at a campus-based program. That could total $50,000 or much more!

Our Professional Gunsmithing Course is Used by Professional Gunsmiths Nationwide

This course is now being used by thousands of professional gunsmiths that have become certified through the American Gunsmithing Institute. Why would a professional invest in our course? Because we save them time by teaching them faster, better, and more advanced repairs and methods of analysis.
