Gunsmith » Overview


Gunsmiths make, modify, repair and service firearms. They may also hire and sell firearms, firearm parts, ammunition and accessories. Experienced gunsmiths may also specialise in creating customised parts and modifying weapons to suit their users.

Because guns are controlled in New Zealand, gunsmithing is regulated. This means that gunsmiths must make sure they comply with safety precautions and make sure that their work falls within the law. For example, educating their customers about gun safety and ensuring that gun buyers are licenced and their identity is verified.
