Introduction

A gunsmith is a person who repairs, modifies, designs, or builds guns. Gunsmiths may also apply carvings, engravings and other decorative features to an otherwise finished gun.

Please add your ancestors to this project. Profiles must be set to public. This is an international project.

To pursue the entirety of this trade, a gunsmith must possess skills as:

  • a parts fabricator
  • a metalworker and/or blacksmith
  • a woodworker, and/or an artisan

Those who are (self-) employed in small gunsmith shops must also possess skills as small business operators; work effectively with a wide variety of customers; and remain abreast of, and comply with federal, state, and local laws, ordinances, and requirements.
