MidwayUSA, a catalog and Internet retailer and wholesaler with Just About Everything® for Shooting, Reloading, Gunsmithing and Optics, has just launched an Exclusive Online Gunsmith Locator.
"Customers need Gunsmiths and Gunsmiths need Customers," says Larry Potterfield, president and CEO of MidwayUSA. "Whether a person needs to have a firearm repaired or wants a complete gun restoration, everyone needs a gunsmith at some point. We think the industry is really going to like this new tool for bringing gunsmithing customers and gunsmiths together."
The purpose of the new website is to bring business to gunsmiths and allow them to specialize in the jobs they do best. For customers seeking gunsmithing services, the website is a useful tool to assist them in finding and selecting a gunsmith who can perform the desired services. Potential gunsmithing service customers may look for gunsmiths in two ways - by browsing or by searching.
Visitors may browse by:
- Type of Work, such as Cleaning or Bluing & Finishing
- Type of Gun, such as a Rifle Specialist or Handgun Specialist
- Specific Gun Specialties, such as Rifle-Remington 700
Customers may also enter a search phrase like "bluing" and enter their City and State or Zip Code to find the closest Gunsmith specializing in a particular type of work.
Another important feature is the ability to rate a gunsmith and review others' ratings for the gunsmiths listed. This rating service is designed to provide customers with the information needed to make an informed decision on choosing a gunsmith.
