Here is a custom bolt gun completed by one of our students in the specialization portion of the program. Mr Simpson started with an @zermatt_arms Origin action. He then took a carbon wrapped @xcaliberbarrels blank to the lathe where he threaded and chambered the tenon and chamber respectively. For a trigger, this student chose the always reliable @timney_triggers. On top of the barrel work, this student designed and manufactured his very own muzzle brake. Once the barreled action was finished it was time to throw it into a stock. He went with a Greyboe Ridgeback which he custom bedded to his newly machined barreled action. Finally he designed his own camouflage that was applied with @cerakote. Join us at CST to gain the skills necessary to build your own custom rifle. Educational Institution.

Recently two of our amazing instructors traveled to Las Vegas to receive an award for institutional excellence, on behalf of the school. "A few months ago, CECU had the privilege to recognize Concorde Career Colleges, the Colorado School of Trades and YTI Career Institute as recipients of the award for institutional excellence. These institutions have been recognized for their commitment to excellence, as evidenced by their active participation in the CHEP employee certification programs since 2013." ...

Have a soft spot for the 1911? We sure do, and so does student Grady Simpson as is evident from the refinish he preformed on this firearm. #gorgeous #ColoradoSchoolofTrades #Gunsmithing #Since47 #GunsmithingStudent #GunsmithingSchool #guns #1911porn #colorado #gunsofinstagram #pistol #rifle #shotgun #tradeschool #1911 ...

Today in Gunsmithing school Grady Simpson decided to try his hand at meteorology. Colorado’s forecast calls for more lightning and thunder.

Took me 2 days to fit this slide to this frame. Once I got the fit I wanted there was no wiggle/wobble and was 1 to 1. Not too shabby for my first time building a 1911. More updates to come.

Had an absolute blast giving a handgun class this last weekend! Keep up that dryfire! If you do even 10 minutes of good dry fire daily, your skills will improve dramatically. Set up a camera and watch for inconsistencies in your technique, and fix them.

Also thank you max_flats and whatfunk6 for the camera support!
And another thank you to my additional RSOs that made an appearance!
More on the way.

SIG P938 came in after being in a floor safe that flooded over the years. Was loaded and one in the pipe. Barrel and hammer rusted in place. It was fun taking apart with the threat of live round going off. All springs are shot and now I get to clean and refinish if required. #coloradoschooloftrades #stimpertfirearms #cerakotesouthwest #collectorsgunexchange #freedomweapons #elpasoguns ...
