Is it about time to thread and suppress your rifle? Does your shotgun need a new bead installed? What about a trigger job? Well you've come to the right place!

Gun City Christchurch has a fully equipped workshop to complete all of the tasks you might require.

If you're not Christchurch based, thats not a problem - any of our other stores can take your firearm for gunsmithing, there will just be an extra $50 freight charge to get it to and from Christchurch. If you can't get to a store at all, that's fine too! Just give our Christchurch branch a call (03 379 8888) and we can arrange to receive your firearm and get it worked on!

Most tasks, you should expect to wait a couple of weeks from drop off to collection, although there are some jobs that will require extra time. 

Please see below, for a list of what we can do for you - if there is something else that you want done that you dont see on here, dont panic, there are so many little things we've just compiled a list of the more common jobs!
