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.
