is there a school that teach how to fix guns? and become a gunsmith?
hehehe, learn by experience and hanging around your favorite smith will teach you lots.
Here sa Philippines? Wala AFAIK.
Sa US, Lassen Community College, in California of all places, has
an accredited vocational gunsmithing program. Tambayan ni
Mark Krebs yun (the guy who introduced the snakeskin treatment
used in the Ed Brown Kobra Karry .45, and copied by countless others).
There are other schools there, I'm sure.
so mga gunsmith natin dito ano almost experience lamang?
yung glock generally di na kailangan ng gunsmith, try and detail strip it when your gun arrives, its so simple, here's a how to guide:
thanks do you have more site that give info or just like that link? mine got from glockmeister.com also download the armorers manual but its old January 1992, hope someone could share updated armorers manual
It's almost a tradition to hand the skills down to the son(s) or the next of kin. Or to beer buddies for that matter.;Y
A lot of gunsmiths here are machinists by trade.
Sir Ersatz - In your neck of the woods (Iloilo, right?), most competent gunsmiths started out as machinists (i. e. Junior, Cirling, Ben, etc,) then graduated into gunsmithing. If you really are interested and would want to follow their footsteps, suggest that you familiarize yourself with machining, particularly lathe machine operations. IIRC, even Bill Wilson started out as a watch repairer, then a lathe machine operator before going into full time gunsmithing (and earning lots of dough in the process). Check out ISAT. I think they have some offerings in this field. Hope you become a successful gunsmith someday para pro bono lahat na BOGs sa shop mo. ;f ;f
I can show you what I learned (tricks on Beretta,Glocks and SW) it will cost you somewhere between a cold beer and a cup of coffee.
isa pa magaling noon don yung anak ni rodson, kaso lang we all know what happened to him, i have a good friend there who shoots a lot, si jojo yap, si nelson ata tumira ng baril nya, si cirling yon ba ang sa lapaz gun club?
I think there are some correspondence courses for gunsmithing but you would need experience in precision machining. And of course a sacrificial/volunteer gun to practice on.
Yes. Cirling is the one in La Paz. Nelson Uygongco, other than being one of the members of the Philippine Team in the last World Shoot is also a very, very competent gunsmith. His gunshop is right in the heart of the city.
Jojo is my cousin, yup he told me to txt him is ever I need help, pero I think mdyo busy cya sa Ranch nang tita ko sa roxas, so dito na lng ko ask questions sa mga BOG frnds ko hehehe
Plus he is super busy setting up his gun club and firing range. They had an inaugural shoot three weeks back.
You can practice at home using these:
download the powerpoint slideshows as well and see what magic you can create! I'm sure Oliver will love these if he hasn't got one yet...;f
Nelson is a gunsmith? as if he needs the money pa hehe
Lathe machine? BAH! I don't need any lathe machine. I can fix your gun with my screw driver, hammer and monkey wrench. Ask gundog....;f;f;f;f;f;c
