If you’ve ever been curious about a gunsmiths’ career path, our gunsmith features are for you. Check out our Q&A with this month’s featured craftsman: Seth Shacklett of Shack's Gunsmithing.
Seth has had an interest in gunsmithing ever since he was a kid. A retired and disabled veteran of the U.S. Army, Seth became a gunsmith hobbyist after serving our country. For the past ten years, he has been actively working as a gunsmith for his business, Shack's Gunsmithing.
Shack’s Gunsmithing focuses primarily on Russian designs from 1891 and on, in addition to general gunsmithing on a wide variety of firearms and projects. Check out the photo below — a heavily modified Romanian Tokarev with parts from China, Russia, and the U.S. (plus a sneaky 1911 part)
