Students combine all of the skills that they have learned to clean, diagnose and repair firearms in the Design and Function section. While the school operates one of the Largest Repair Facilities in the United States that is open to the public, students are exposed to repair scenarios that are as real world as can be achieved in a learning environment. Students are faced with both modern and antique customer firearms that are in need or either repair or customization.
Once the student understands the operation of the firearm, they insure safe operation and will complete any customer requested repair or customization work. This work can range from a simple cleaning, repair, complete restoration or a complex modification. Students will grasp a working knowledge of firearm safety, machining, fixturing, firearm alteration, sight installation, troubleshooting, parts fitting and installation and firearm operation in the Design and Function section.
