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 in to the US Army when he enlisted at age 17 as an armor crewman.  He spent 5 years on active duty for our country, including serving in Vietnam, before deciding to work for the Department of Defense.  During his time with the DOD, Steve 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.  During his time with the US Army, 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 to our Gunsmithing Department.

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 2021
