    American Gunsmithing Institute

    Has anyone ever tried one of their products. I thought about picking up a couple of their dvd's but didn't know how they woul dbe. I did sign up and got the catalogue. My wife was wanting to me to get the full gunsmithing course till she saw the price. My only problem is certified or not a dvd can't match hands on with person to person instruction. Anyway, I thought about picking up a M&P, and the glock for starters. As that covers my guns, my wife's gun, and my cousins. Then later snatching up one for my Dracco AK pistol.

    Didn't know if anyone had any experience or knew anyone who had tried one of the videos out.

    I've ordered a couple of their dvd courses, well laid out and very informative. Will teach you most anything you will need to know. But like you said there is no substitute for person to person instruction. Are you intending this as career training or just for personal information to work on your own firearms? As with most employers they view self taught as not being taught at all and will prefer formal education.

    Mainly just personal information. I haven't broke down any of my M&P to the little bit parts as I am afraid I will never get it put back together. There is one gunsmith and I hear he does good work, but is cocky and is pricey. I was mainly hoping to get one if it will help me as far as breaking the gun all the way down and putting it back together. Kind of as a reference guide. The others are guns like my cousin has. he has bad hands can barely shoot anymore and it is all he can do to clean his gun sometimes. if anything goes wrong I would like to be able to fix it.

    I really do want to learn how to do gunsmithing work. I however can't drive 4+ hours to go to school.

    Then I would just order the particular dvd courses you need, that what I did. Why pay for information you don't need or will most likely never use. You can often times find them on ebay or sportsman's guide for lower rates. Also check out midwayusa.com they sometimes have overstock in the clearance section.
