Everything You Wanted To Know About Gunsmithing | Guns And Gunsmiths

Bob Dunlap
Master Gunsmith and AGI Instructor Bob Dunlap with AGI President Gene Kelly Master Gunsmith and AGI Instructor Bob Dunlap with AGI President Gene Kelly An interview with Gene Kelly, President of the American Gunsmithing institute, and Robert Dunlap, Master Gunsmith and Senior Instructor. For those of you who have never seen or heard this interview before, it is a fascinating look into the life of Master Gunsmith Bob Dunlap. I enrolled in the Lassen College Gunsmithing Program where I met Bob Dunlap. At that time, Lassen was noted as the best gunsmithing school in the country because Bob Dunlap was teaching design, function, and repair there. He made sure you understood how things work. You can't fix something unless you know how it works. After graduating, I worked in some other shops and started my own manufacturing company. Around 1993 Bob was getting ready to retire, so I asked him "Who is taking over this whole program at Lassen, teaching design, function and repair? Let me tell you a little more about Bob Dunlap. For over 35 years, he was the senior instructor at Lassen College Gunsmithing School and also maintained a fulltime gun repair business with up to nine gunsmiths working for him. He was a warranty station for Smith and Wesson, Colt, Charter Arms, Winchester, Browning, Para Ordnance, I believe Uberti and about a dozen other manufacturers. In his career he has been responsible for over 250,000 repairs. Bob is also an expert witness in firearms court cases and he's traveled internationally to many of the factories around the world. Bob, how did you get started in gunsmithing? Robert: On my 11th birthday my brother gave me a BB gun. My mother didn't like guns so I couldn't have any. She married a guy who hunted and he allowed my brother to give me a BB gun. Robert: No, but I wore that gun out. Robert: Yeah, that was the deal I made because my father felt they were more dangerous than a shotgun because they shoot farther. Robert: Almost immediately. Robert: From the get-go, and it might be because of my engineering background and my background in research with General Motors, I knew you had to know how the thing worked before you could fix it. Robert: To me, that was the hardest part to fixing a gun I'd never seen: taking it apart and putting it back together the first time because they all have idiosyncrasies. Robert: My first gun shop, when I was a kid in high school, was an old chicken coop. Robert: We do between 10,000 and 14,000 a year. Robert: There's a lot more meat in the master course isn't there? The thing that Bob teaches, I think, is concepts. Not necessarily specific things but concepts and like Bob says, if you know how it works you can fix it. Robert: Isn't it amazing how precise that fit on that particular part had to be? It's close. Robert: That's amazing. Joel: Yes it is, and Bob and I have talked on the phone before. Robert: That's why your voice sounds familiar. That's the thing about AGI, I've talked to Bob and I've talked to Ken. The approach that Bob takes with teaching is exactly what works for me. I'm pretty much self-taught on everything. Robert: Another thing about apprenticeship-finding a qualified gunsmith to work under and that's a real problem. Robert: That's not what you want. Bob, I know you did this in the Moneymakers section of the course, but why don't you just hit the main tools you feel somebody needs to do general repair. Robert: In my shop, I have about 30 screwdrivers, not the replaceable bit type. I have four different weights of ball-peen hammers, two sets of punches and a few specialized punches and screwdrivers for doing just one particular task. Gene: What about power tools? Robert: I have a hand grinder. Robert: No, no, Jacobs Chuck. Robert: Yes, I recommend Foredom. Robert: I'm not either, Gene, but my understanding is that as long as you don't do it for profit but to enhance your hobby, you don't need it. This entry was posted in Bob Dunlap, Gene Kelly. I wanted to simply add my thanks to Mr. Dunlap. I bought an AGI video re: Sig P226. I am an amateur but I have fixed and cleaned and so on many weapons since 1954. Because of Mr. Dunlap's presentation clarity in the video, I have taken my 226 apart until not a pin remained to remove. Put it back together and not one malfunction yet.
