After we posted our first gunsmith kink yesterday, someone asked, “What is a gunsmith kink?”
If you are not familiar with the term “kink” used in this manner, it refers to “a clever unusual way of doing something.” Thus, a Gunsmith Kink is a shop short cut, tip, or trick that that improves quality, makes a given process easier, etc.
They are mostly small things, or unique tools that that typically come from experience or have been handed down from one gunsmith to another.
We post one here from time to time. Watch for the category “kink.”
