Teaching Professional Gunsmithing for Over 30+ years – Established 1993 – Thousands of Graduates

Picture this: a staggering 500 million firearms scattered across the United States, each one representing the passion for freedom and the right to bear arms. The astonishing part? This number is just an estimate, with countless older firearms tucked away in private collections, off the record books.

In the past four years alone, the sale of firearms has reached unprecedented levels, averaging over one million units per month. The sea of firearms owned by freedom-loving Americans is vast, and the need for skilled gunsmiths has never been more apparent. Whether you’re concerned about your own firearms or want to contribute to the broader community, the call for those who can maintain, repair, and customize these weapons is resounding.

At any given moment, a minimum of 10% of all firearms requires professional attention, be it cleaning, maintenance, repairs, or customization. That’s a staggering 50 million guns in need of service. Sadly, a significant portion of these firearms remains untouched, residing in closets and safes, either unreliable or completely unusable.

The challenge lies in the fact that most firearm owners don’t have access to knowledgeable gunsmiths or know where to take their firearms for proper maintenance and repairs. Many so-called “gunsmiths” lack a comprehensive education, oft en resorting to part swapping without a deep understanding of firearms design, function, and repair.

This is where the American Gunsmithing Institute (AGI) trained Gunsmiths stand out. Armed with a trade school-level education, they possess a profound understanding of the intricacies of firearms. Unlike their counterparts, AGI-trained gunsmiths comprehend the design, function, and repair processes, ensuring that they can customize guns without compromising safety or integrity.

In stark contrast, many self-proclaimed “smiths” resort to changing parts in the hopes of solving issues, without a true understanding of the underlying problems. AGI-trained Gunsmiths, on the other hand, follow a step-by-step approach to customization, delving into the how and why of each process.

So, how can you be part of the solution to the shortage of skilled Gunsmiths? The answer lies in AGI’s Home Study, Trade School Level, Certified Professional Gunsmithing course. Whether you are looking for part-time opportunities, a full-time career, or a source of retirement income, becoming a Gunsmith is a viable option.
