Williams Gun Sight Company, Inc. has offered quality gunsmithing services to Michigan hunters and shooters for over 60 years.  Now, Williams is pleased to offer our famous gunsmithing services to our World Wide Web customers.

Williams gunsmithing department has added many new services with the help of our talented gunsmithing staff. 

  • Barrel installation is available with any available caliber, and by using the highest quality barrels like Hart, Shilen and Pac-Nor, we have been able to obtain proven extreme accuracy.

  • We offer Williams Guide Series and Weatherby muzzle brakes.  We feel these brakes are the finest visually and the most effective brakes on the market.

  • Complete engraving services are available.

  • Quality rebluing services have always been a mainstay and Williams continues to offer new finishes like a bead blast fine matt finish and rust bluing process for double shotguns.

  • Custom stocks by Williams service supervisor, Kevin Wigton, are slow, time consuming work, but worth the wait.

  • Williams also offers drop in stock installations from HS Precision, McMillan, Bell and Carlson, Butler Creek and MPI.   These stocks can be finished in less time than a total custom gun.

  • Williams Service Department is a warranty repair center for Browning, Remington, U.S. Repeating Arms Company, Inc. and Weatherby.

NOTE: When disassembly is required, all guns will be test fired at a labor rate of $5.00 per gun plus ammo used.

 

Williams hopes the gunsmithing services and products
mentioned throughout our web site
provide you with many years of fine shooting.

SHIPPING YOUR FIREARM
TO OUR SERVICE DEPARTMENT

It is legal, under Federal law, to ship a personal firearm to a licensed dealer such as Williams Gun Sight for repair purposes without obtaining licensing.  However, the repaired firearm must be returned to the same address from which it was received.

You should check with the shipping service, such as UPS, that you intend to use, as their policies vary in regard to shipping firearms. Shotguns and rifles may be shipped by the US Postal Service, per the Domestic Mail Manual(Sec.11.3).

Clearly label the box containing your firearm with our name and address as follows:

Williams Gun Sight Company, Inc.
7389 Lapeer Road
Davison, MI 48423

  • Be sure to use adequate packaging materials when shipping your firearm.
