Diagnosing a Kimber With Issues

with Ken Brooks
AGI Instructor and Owner of Pisco Gunsmithing

This video from the Gun Club of America gives a valuable lesson to all aspiring gunsmiths. It is an excellent example of the thought process and investigation into a gun that has several problems. Ken looks at the parts that may be culprits and then develops a plan to solve those issues.

Using these techniques, any gunsmith or owner should be able to understand how to repair a faulty firearm, rather than simply throwing a bunch of new parts at it and hoping for the best. The key, of course, is to understand the function of each part and how it interacts with the others. Continue reading

Some things are just meant to be, for instance, me and my new (old) Remington Double Derringer, Type 3.

DunnBy Robert Dunn 
AGI and GunTech Video Producer, 
AGI Pro Course Graduate, GCA Charter Member

I would like to write about cheap guns in this article. What do I mean when I say, “Cheap Guns”? I could mean that they are cheaply priced, meaning a good value, or I might be saying that it is a cheap piece of crap… or both! Some folks are lucky enough to be able to say that they would have nothing to do with a cheap gun. Well, I would bet that most of the people that own cheap guns would love to be able to have the same attitude. Continue reading
