After hearing several people they said this guy was the best. I decided to give S3 a try. I took several firearms to Jim. One in particular, I have had at least 4 "Gunsmiths" look at it. They all charged a small fortune to tell me that it could not be fixed. Jim diagnosed the problem within seconds and fixed it with in a few days at a very reasonable cost. The gun works better than new. It is a little bit of a drive for me to get up to see him. But it is worth it. I will never go anywhere else and will recommend him to anyone looking for a competent Gunsmith! Thanks Jim! Mike
Despite being buried by hunting season, Jim made time to see my non functioning Mossy safety. Less than a mile away from his shop, Jim called to say the repair was done.
In these times of slow, impersonal service, Jim stands out as a great exception. None better.
When you ask him intelligent questions, you'll get intelligent answers. He was able to explain to me what was wrong with my gun and how he planned to fix it. That's good service!
Jim is like a gunsmith unicorn. Honest, high quality, an no BS. I know who I am using for any other projects down the road. From one veteran to another I highly recommend Jim for any firearm services. Even if he can't do it he would point you in the right direction.
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.
