Since he was eight years old, Marc Stairet was doing the reloading, cleaning, and maintenance of his family’s firearms. Under the tutelage of his grandfather and later local master gunsmiths, Marc learned the craft of gunsmithing. This skill was crucial during his time in the military, where his job as an expert marksman demanded that he be able to refine his weapon for unparalleled accuracy and dependability.For over forty years he has cared for the firearms of family and friends, helping them to enjoy a more satisfying shooting experience. From providing young shooters with a comfortable, easy to manage rifle, to helping more experienced gun owners refine their firearms for casual to competition shooting, Marc has honed the craft of gunsmithing into what many fear is a dying art. Now, he has decided to share that craftsmanship is a more formal way by providing professional gunsmithing services full time; hence, the birth of Fredric’s Arms and Smiths, LLC.
