The Crafting of a Superior Gunsmith Department
Gander Mountain’s Gunsmith department was founded in 1979 in Wilmot, WI. During its early years, the gunsmith “department” was a one-man operation housed in a 200 square foot shop. As Gander Mountain’s reputation for quality work at a reasonable price grew, so did the shop. By the late 80’s the shop employed five full-time gunsmiths and offered a host of professional services and accessories. Entering the 90’s, Gander Mountain focused on growing its retail presence in the Outdoor sporting goods market, and was determined in their choice to grow its gunsmith services as well. Today, Gander Mountain employs 40 plus gunsmiths in its regional shop locations and repairs thousands of firearms each year. Over the years Gander Mountain gunsmiths have adopted the slogan “Quality, Integrity & Service” and each of the gunsmiths treats that slogan as their own personal pledge. Stop in and see for yourself, Gander Mountain’s professionals would love to help you with all your firearm projects.
