I have been doing repairs of firearms “on the side” for over 30 years. From 2010-2011I worked as a civilian
armorer attached to an Army unit in Iraq. A retired Marine, I’ve worked 6+ of the last 10 years in the
mid-East in support of the American military in both security related and weapons repair positions.
Labor rates are competitively priced at $45 per hour.
A word on parts… I buy parts from distributors who deal primarily with, or exclusively with gunsmiths.
Some of these distributors I’ve dealt with for over 30 years. I am confident of the quality of the parts that I
buy from these companies. As I cannot be assured of the source, or quality of customer supplied parts, I
DO NOT install them. I stand behind the quality of my work, and the parts I supply.
Additionally, I make every effort to ensure that the firearm received by the customer after being repaired in
my shop is safe, and reliable. Therefore, if I receive a firearm in the shop that has one of the inherent safety
features broken, disabled, or bypassed, I will repair that feature to its original condition. Any parts required
in this repair will be passed back to the customer. If the firearm cannot be made to function safely, it will be
tagged as “UNSAFE TO FIRE” and returned to the customer. Please do not ask that a safety feature be
removed, bypassed, or disabled. It won’t happen on my watch.
