Few things are more comforting or more useful than having a true expert at your call. That’s why Second Amendment Sports is proud to boast a professional on-site gunsmith.

It’s not unheard-of for a gunshop to keep a gunsmith on board, but the vast majority of these are send-out, not on-site. Having a gunsmith always present at our facility means quicker turnaround and more responsive service for you, with the gunsmith available to consult with you and discuss your firearm right away at the point of purchase.

Buying a used gun and want it cleaned? Buying a new gun and want it sighted, fitted with an accessory, or otherwise modified? You can schedule a consultation while checking out, be seen while the paperwork for your purchase is brought in order, and have your desired modification, cleaning, or repair already completed for you when you pick up your firearm. Just another way that Second Amendment Sports strives to be your one-stop shop.

Maintenance and Cleaning

For a high-quality gun to stay a high-quality gun, there’s a lot of care that has to be put in. A poorly maintained firearm not only runs the risk of misfiring at a crucial moment, but more generally of degrading in smoothness of action and accuracy of shots fired. Regular cleaning and maintenance is crucial to making sure your gun keeps working right and holds its value.

But sometimes, you’d just rather not do it yourself. You might not feel up to the task of some of the more involved processes that require disassembling and reassembling the gun, or you might just not want to go through the tedium of it all—even if you love your gun, sometimes cleaning it can be about as fun as mowing the lawn or washing your car, and you just want to pay someone rather than go through the time and effort of doing it yourself.

That’s where our gunsmith takes over. Capable of performing every aspect of routine maintenance, from giving the barrel of your rifle a good scrubdown with a bore brush soaked in solvent and lubricant, to applying anti-rust lubricant, to cleaning the recoil spring in the buttstock of your autoloading shotgun, our gunsmith gives your firearm the professional care and attention to detail that it deserves.

Second Amendment Sports offers stand hand cleanings for all firearms, as well as ultrasonic cleaning for highest level of clean. If you want a truly deep clean for your gun then your best option is going with an ultrasonic cleaning. This process, similar to that used to clean fine jewelry, involves placing the gun in a special chamber that cleans it with heat and vibration, producing a higher-quality cleaning than available via

Repairs and Modifications

Yet even having taken every possible precaution, sometimes things just happen and your gun needs some repair work. In that event, we invite you to make full use of our gunsmith’s extensive technical expertise. Whether your gun is an old friend you want fixed up or a new acquaintance you just bought and want restored, our gunsmith will get it operating at peak performance again.

Or maybe your gun doesn’t need to be fixed—maybe it just doesn’t fit your needs quite right. You like it, for the most part, but there’s something that’s just a bit off. In such a case, our gunsmith is ready and able to perform any modification you desire. Whether you want a different grip for your handgun, or a different stock for your rifle, or to add a fresh finish or new sights or a long-range scope, our gunsmith can take on any job. Get your gun customized, and it’ll be like it was designed just for you.
