Meet Our Gunsmiths: Steve Krieg
Steve has had a lifetime of firearm use, repair, and diagnosis. His love of firearms began as a young child. He carried this passion into the US Army when he enlisted at age 17 as an armor crewman and went on to spend 5 years on active duty for our country, including serving in Vietnam.
Following his service, Steve began working for the Department of Defense where he was responsible for weapons testing and development for the US Army, determining the viability of current and new firearms. In layman’s terms, he was the guy that decided if a gun was suitable for combat use. Steve tested everything from pistols and rifles to grenades, rockets, and the monstrous 30mm Vulcan Gatling Gun.
Throughout this time, he achieved an impressive number of certifications and completed training in weapon systems repair of numerous platforms; including the M240 and M249 SAW, M16, M4, M9 pistol, M242 bushmaster 25mm, MK19, MOD-3 machine gun, and the M2 “ma deuce” machine gun. He has more recently completed factory repair courses from Heckler & Koch, Smith & Wesson, and Glock.
When Steve joined the Black Wing team as a gunsmith in 2007, his experience and knowledge of firearm diagnosis and repair became an unbelievably valuable asset not only to our Gunsmithing Department, but our Black Wing family!

Why Black Wing?
“Great gunsmithing. I took a chance on these guys due to the lack of a reputable gunsmith in my area. I had them pin and weld some muzzle devices and do a function check. Everything I got back looked great and worked well. Totally worth it.” – Andrew Barlow
