"Ask a Gunsmith" at The Adelaide Arms & Militaria Fair hosted by Ignition Custom Engineering

Ask a Gunsmith at Adelaide Arms Militaria Fair (Adelaide Gun Show)

Talk over your project ideas with some of Adelaide’s leading gunsmiths as the Ignition Custom Engineering team host “Ask a Gunsmith” at South Australia’s premier firearm expo – The Adelaide Arms and Militaria Fair – next Saturday and Sunday.

Ask us about aftermarket upgrades or repairs, or perhaps that nagging oddball question that no one can seem to answer…..If no one else knows or can do it, we most probably can. We specialise in the unusual and unique and are not afraid of a challenge.

We will also be showcasing a small selection of the custom jobs we can do as fully licenced D-class manufacturing gunsmiths.

Twice a year the team at Tarling Events throws open the doors to Adelaide’s biggest gun, firearm and militaria collecting and trading event which attracts several thousand punters from across South Australia. The Fair  (or Adelaide Gun Show as its affectionately called) stretches across 2300 square metres in the undercover function centre at Chasers Expo Centre at Greyhound Park, Angle Vale SA.

Adelaide Arms and Militaria Fair (aka Adelaide Gun Show) features 2300 sqaure metres of firearms and pieces for all styles of shooters and includes Ignition Custom Engineering

It offers a prestigious and premier collection of historic and collectible rifles and guns and armed-forces memorabilia.

For the hunters, there are knives and hunting equipment and accessories. Plus stalls catering for target and competition shooters.

Some of the samples you might see at the Ignition Custom Engineering stall include:

  • Custom built rifles and handguns
  • Aftermarket custom shotguns
  • Muzzlebrakes and flash hiders
  • Bolt fluting and knobs
  • Extractor upgrades
  • Custom Cerakote work
  • Weight reduction/lightened firearms for hunting
  • Accuracy and precision upgrades for target acquisition in competition or hunting
  • Aftermarket fabrication work
  • Lever action upgrades
  • Rebarrels and chamber work
  • Trigger work / upgrades and aftermarket triggers inc Timney Triggers
  • Decommissioned/display pieces
  • Let us know if there’s something specific you want to see

One of the common questions we get is about changing calibre on a rile or changing from one brand of magazine to another. We’ve done plenty of these styles of conversions. If this is something you’ve ever thought of, we can happily talk you through the process at the Arms Fair.

We can decommission firearms too – that means keeping the look of the firearm intact while altering its internal mechanics so it no longer functions. We include a SA Police certificate so it can legally be used for display outside a safe. So if you find something on the day at another stall or there’s something at home you want for display (not use) come speak to us and find out how we can make it happen.

At Ignition Custom Engineering, our team believes in supporting the shooting community at a local level and have proudly been part of this event for several years – along with some of South Australia and Adelaide’s leading firearms industry innovators (names like Impact Dynamics / Southern ShootersSTS Targets, Precision Rifle Products, Projectile Warehouse, & Afterdark Surveillance).

Admission is $10 (children are free) and you can discuss the day’s finds with mates over a meal on site at Chasers Restraunt. Be sure to bring cash for purchases as EFT facilities are not always available.
