SUBJECT: GSS 112 Machine Shop for Gunsmiths

Welcome to the Machine Shop for Gunsmiths Course!

You will be provided with a bench to work on; however, you must bring your own basic hand tools (see recommended tool list enclosed). The benches have an enclosed cabinet that may be locked to secure your tools and projects, so be sure to bring a padlock.

Safety glasses with side shields are required.

We will be machining 6 projects depending on how rapidly you pick up the machining techniques. There are two required projects and you have the option of picking 4 others that you wish to complete. When deciding which projects you want to make please consider what your main interests in gunsmithing are and choose projects in that area. Make sure you bring the required tools for the selected projects.

There will be a lecture each day on topics such as:


We look forward to an educational and productive two weeks.

Live ammo is not permitted in the classrooms or lab.
