I came to S3 Gunsmithing with a fairly significant issue. It was corrected quickly and professionally. I cannot offer any higher recommendation.

If you’re looking for a professional, responsive, and hard working gunsmith...look no further! Jim was very easy to work with and has an incredible amount of expertise. I’m completely satisfied and can’t wait to have him work on some of my other firearms! Highly recommended!

Jim is the best, there's no problem to big or to small. He's easy to talk to and knows what he's talking about. I have used Jim several times and would recommend his services to anyone! VERRY fair on price. I'm a happy and repeat customer.

I brought in my AR-15 that would not shoot. Jim diagnosed the issue within 15 minutes as a problem with the upper I bought having the wrong firing pin in it when I bought it. Jim reviewed the rest of the gun to make sure nothing else was an issue. He is extremely knowledgeable and efficient with his time. Jim swapped out the firing pin and now it fires perfectly (except I do not shoot well). His price to me was very reasonable. I will have Jim do all my guns going forward.

Jim is a great guy and does fantastic work. He will be my go-to for anything my firearms may need! Quick, professional and fairly priced. Thanks Jim!

Brought my recent antique SxS shotgun purchase to Jim for a safety evaluation as I truly wanted it to be a serviceable firearm, not just a wall hanger. Jim provided me a mother lode of information me to ensure that I didn’t become an “Elmer Fudd” victim of over-pressure negligence. A few watch-out issues were brought to my attention and if they arise, S3 Gunsmithing will be my go-to remedy. Jim is knowledgeable, professional, and truly concerned for the safety of antique firearm owners.

First time doing business with S3 Gunsmithing and Jim. I'm a life long shooter and hunter. I was not disapointed at all. Jim is extremely knowledgeable, pesonal and his quality of work is superb. I will be a continuing customer as long as he is in business. Thank you for the amazing work on my rifle, Jim.

Jim did an outstanding job. I brought him a family heirloom; 1883 Single Action Colt that needed the cylinder pin screw removed (a difficult and delicate job) and the cylinder spring replaced. He drilled out the screw and found/installed the uniquely threaded replacement screw(nickeled as the old one). Finally he disassembled and replaced the cylinder spring to complete the job in a short time. The cost was much lower than I expected. I would and will recommend him to anyone in need of gunsmithing. Good work, Good prices and a Good guy. Thanks

Jim's work speaks for itself... there are MANY other "gunsmiths" in the area - but beware who you trust your firearms to! The quality of work as well as the prices he charges are inline with what you'd expect to have something done right the FIRST time.

I brought him a Savage 93R17 (.17HMR) to have the heavy barrel threaded for my .22lr can that just got out of "jail"... he had it done within two days! When I got home, I couldn't wait to screw my suppressor onto the newly cut threads at the end of barrel -- only to find out that there was a substantial gap in between the suppressor and the shoulder of the barrel. UGH! Since I didn't want to mess around with spacers, I just called Jim back up on the phone - explained the situation to which he replied... "oh, shoot - bring it back out along with your suppressor and I'll cut back the threads on the barrel to exactly match up to your suppressor!" So I did. Another few days later (he's a busy guy!!!) he called me up and said to come pick it up. When I got there he went over everything he did and it all lined up perfectly... then he surprised me...

1. He not only cut back the threads on my barrel, he turned down the thread saver to match the newly shortened threads so that it all matched up beautifully AND he cut a new target crown into the barrel for me.

2. He did NOT_ charge me a DIME for all of the extra work he did!

I have owned firearms for decades. Finding someone to fix them and do it right has always been a problem until now. Jim's knowledge and skill level is as good as it gets. My firearms run better than new. I had him build me a custom rifle as well. If I do my part it is a sub 1/4 inch rifle all day long! If you want the best, you take it to the best. Call Jim!!
