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.

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

  • a parts fabricator
  • a metalworker and/or blacksmith
