The Pennsylvania Gunsmith School® strives to promote confidence, awareness, appreciation, and a sense of pride and accomplishment in each student as they complete their training to become Master Gunsmiths.

Talk about industry support!

During the unfortunate temporary closing due to COVID-19 the Students and Staff enjoyed a myriad of daily video interviews with some of the top names in the firearms industry from around the world. Celebrities such as Doug Turnbull, Pete Brownell, Larry Vickers and Jim West to name a few! Also Alumni, representatives and leaders of The American Custom Gunmakers Guild, The Firearms Engravers Guild of America, Cody Firearms Museum, Beretta, Krieghoff, Cooper Firearms, KG Gunkote, Real Avid, Brownells, Ullman Precision, Childers Guns, and dozens more.

From Our Graduates

  • After getting out of the Service, enrolling in PAGS was simply a soiId decision. The Master Gunsmithing Program is packed full of skills and knowledge to be had by anyone wishing to develop and hone their Gunsmithing abilities. The vast amount of bench time helped me solidify concepts and processes learned in the classroom. I couldn’t be more pleased, and my Gunsmithing business is thriving!

    After I had learned of the Pennsylvania Gunsmith School, I called them and took a tour. There are very few Gunsmith schools in the USA that are directly focused on the trade. Others require the additional core education courses like english, math and history for a degree. Being 49 and a retired Veteran, I was quite satisfied with my level of common education and directly focused on the trade studies. On the day of the tour, I liked what I saw, both on the shop floor and in the administrative offices, so I registered. It has now been a few years and I can say without a doubt, PAGS was the right move. I still maintain contact with former classmates and instructors. I own a Gunsmith business now and am very happy with it! My ratio of repeat customers is equal to that of new customers. Couldn’t be more pleased.

    Yes, I would do it again!
