In depth resources for Gunsmithing classes and topics.



"The Gunsmithing curriculum is designed to provide students with the required skills needed to refurbish metal and wood as applicable to firearms, to diagnose malfunctions for repair, and to accomplish complex custom gunsmithing tasks. The FTCC Gunsmithing program features: A state-of-the-art Machine Shop with modern manufacturing capabilities, a dedicated refinishing lab for Parkerizing, bluing, painting and color case hardening, and an extensive firearms library. A dedicated workspace is available for each student to focus on projects such as the 1911, AR15, and precision rifles."
