About Us


Welcome and thanks for visiting Franklin Precision Gunsmithing, LLC. Franklin Precision Gunsmithing is located in beautiful northwest Montana near Kalispell and Glacier National Park. Franklin Precision Gunsmithing is owned and operated by Randy and Marita Franklin. Randy enjoyed a 27 year career as a police officer with the Lubbock, Texas Police Department. During his tenure with the department Randy served as a firearms instructor and armorer for department issued weapon systems. These duties, coupled with S.W.A.T. and normal duty assignments, ingrained the importance of a firearm’s reliability to the user. The reliability of a firearm to the user has carried over to the gunsmithing services we provide.Randy attended formal gunsmithing training at Yavapai College, located in Prescott, Arizona, where he received an A.A.S. in Gunsmithing, graduating with honors. Randy also completed training on numerous firearms during his career with the Lubbock P.D. Randy’s gunsmithing experience include the assigned armorer duties with the Lubbock P.D., formal education received through Yavapai College, employment as a gunsmith with a Montana rifle manufacturer, and the operation of Franklin Precision Gunsmithing on a part time and full time basis since April 2009. Should you have questions about the services we can provide please contact us. We look forward to providing personal gunsmithing services to our Montana neighbors and those located across the country.
