You may have heard the terms armorer and gunsmith. An armorer helps maintain and replace parts for a particular firearm. A gunsmith can alter and replace parts as well as make factory level repairs, modify and design work to a firearm.
Several of our staff members are certified Smith & Wesson M&P Armorers. To become a certified armorer, a daylong training is provided. Our certified armorers gain an understanding of how the firearms works giving them unprecedented knowledge that will aid you in selecting your next Smith & Wesson firearm.
Our certified armorers talk about the value our customers receive through the Smith & Wesson M&P Armorer training:
Anthony – “By becoming familiar with the firearm we have a good understanding of the features that makes it easier to explain them to our customers. Additionally, we can easily offer repairs and perform upgrades (triggers, night sights, etc.) to our customer’s M&P pistols.” Anthony is also a certified Glock armorer.
Brandon – “With the course, we received a parts kit that allows us to repair your pistol in very little time. It’s invaluable that we can fix your pistol quickly allowing you to return to shooting with minimal time away – especially crucial too if it’s your carry pistol that breaks.”
Sean – “By attending the daylong armorers class, I am able to better understand how the firearms works on the inside which allows me to offer my knowledge to customers when they are making their selection.”
Isaiah – “In the daylong course, we disassembled and reassembled the M&P pistol allowing me to understand the firearm better and in turn allow me to pass along my knowledge to our customers.”
Frank – “Being an armorer allows me to be familiar with the inner workings of the M&P line. I can make minor repairs and offer suggestions on maintenance and care of the weapon.”
