The Gunsmith TV Show

Their is a new TV show being produced on American Gunsmiths. The producers are looking for professional and amateur Gunsmiths to be highlighted on the show.

The idea is to show the work of American gunsmiths, to share their knowledge with others and to show case their work.

The first nine weeks of the show has three novices learning to build their dream rifles with help from three top American Gunsmiths. The rifle's are judged by a panel of judges and the home audience. with the winners receiving $5,000 dollars in prizes.

The next 13 weeks are spent traveling throughout the united states watching gunsmiths building rifles, handguns, and shotguns for all disciplines of the shooting sports, and gathering tips on how they make their guns special. Throughout the first season their will be segments where the show visits other aspects of the firearms world. Segments on Remington, Winchester, Savage and other mainstream manufactures as well as firearms engravers, barrel makers, stock makers, and parts suppliers. Each week viewers questions will also be answered by the gunsmiths.

Now here is where you do your part, if you know of a gunsmith who deserves to be on the show go to the web site www.thegunsmiths.com and nominate them on the gunsmith nomination form or if you would like to be a contestant on the show and build the rifle of your dreams fill out a contestant form.

The DVD will come out shortly after the first season. It is a combination of the 22 episodes pulse several hours of extra tips and such, I feel the real plus is the diagrams of fixtures and prints you get. As well as some real answers from the Gunsmiths. If you have any questions you want covered go to the web site www.thegunsmiths.com and fill out a form or if there is something you want to see on the show let them know. Or if you have a gunsmith you like let them know that also.
