Full Answer

The salary of a gunsmith ultimately depends on the demand for gunsmiths in the area and any special areas of expertise. Those that opt to work for a company may earn less than those starting their own business, though as many as 50 percent of such ventures fail within the first few years. In the end, years of experience and a reputation for outstanding work equates to higher earnings.
