Students who participate in the Professional Gunsmithing Bundle have the advantage of taking the three gunsmithing courses at one time, instead of individually. The information in this course combines the material found in Gunsmithing Course 1, Gunsmithing Course 2, and Gunsmithing Course 3. While in this course, students will receive an overview of gunsmithing, as well as the more complex techniques and methods involved in this trade.
The first course will give students a general idea of what gunsmithing entails, and the tools that are typically used in the trade. As gunsmithing involves more than just working with the metal part of a gun, students will also learn about the other skills that are typically involved in this profession, such as metalworking and wood crafting. The basics of cleaning and storing firearms will also be discussed, as will the procedures that should be followed for proper gun safety.
In the second portion of this course, students will learn how to customize the metal areas on a firearm after learning about stock layout and gunstock. In this area, students will also learn more about the customization that may be implemented in gunsmithing. While not all of these professionals choose to focus on customization, those who do may be proficient in plating, polishing, Parkerizing, bluing, browning, engraving, and jewelling.
The last part of the Professional Gunsmithing Bundle will concentrate on how to maximize firearm performance, ammo making, shotshell components, and basic ballistics. A special part of this last module will show students how to build an 80% lower receiver of an AR-15. While gun laws should have been discussed in the beginning of this course, students will receive a refresher before completing this course. Gun laws and legislation will be explained, in addition to how to set up a gun business.
After successfully completing this course, students should understand the rules and standards all gunsmithers should use while in their profession. Students should also be aware of the different techniques that can be used in gunsmithing, as well as the common tools and processes that are used to clean and shape metal and wood.
