“How Often Should I Have My Gun Inspected by a Professional?”
This is a question we hear quite frequently at DCF guns, so we thought it would be a great idea to explain what you should expect when bringing your weapon to the local gunsmith.
As a gun owner, you should be able to notice and feel when your firearm is not performing at its optimal level, and, depending on your experience, you might even be able to pinpoint the specific cause of the issue. While some of these issues can be fixed with a quick cleaning, others will require the assistance of a professional.
What Can a Gunsmith Fix?
Our gunsmiths in Castle Rock are known for performing some of the best handgun repairs in Denver and the surrounding areas. From deep cleanings to repairs, they are able to get almost any request done in a short amount of time, and should we not have the tools on hand, we can have the proper part ordered and in stock within a few days.
When looking at the proper definition of the word, a handgun is actually a machine, and like all machines, they require basic maintenance. A successful fire requires a few actions to take place in synchronization, and small hangups between two moving parts can not only hinder your firing but also prove to be dangerous.
What a gunsmith can offer you is the confidence that all components of your handgun are working together fluidly. A gunsmith will check all springs, lubrication, and parts to ensure that all have plenty of life left in them. As well as provide a deep cleaning to the gun itself, since residue not only builds up on the exterior of your weapon but extended use causes grit to build up inside as well.
As mentioned earlier, a gun is a machine, and as we all know, there are certain procedures that need to be implemented when we intend to leave a car or boat stationary for a while or season. The same can be said for handguns, as both weather and time can cause certain parts to expand or contract given the climate, even if it hasn’t been used regularly. A gunsmith can help bring your gun back to life after a few months of collecting dust inside of a case, and should you decide to retire your weapon for an extended period of time, we can also make the adjustments needed to prepare it for a long rest.
