Learn to build guns in a challenging program that really delivers.

Fall of 2017 the Firearms Technology Certificate program at Flathead Valley Community College is well established.  This will be the fourth year for this one of a kind program. This is the only such program in the United States and in 2016 was expanded to accommodate 16 full time students.

If you want to work in firearms manufacturing , this is the program.  Designed to help machinists gain skills and a “vocabulary” for the firearms manufacturing field, ultimately making them more employable.  The courses are constructed specifically to give the student a mechanical and ballistic understanding of firearms so that they comprehend how the parts they are building fit into the firearm system.  Issue like headspace, chamber pressure, accuracy and manufacturing tolerances are a major focus.

Employers have stated that this program give students the building blocks they need to be valuable in the firearms building business.

The instructor is quoted as saying, “This is a truly challenging and informative program. Students can come away with a wealth of knowledge and tools if they choose to apply themselves.  There is nothing more satisfying than sharing knowledge and giving someone with passion a leg up on the firearms trade.” Measure the bore to work with the reamer.
