name is Marc Delaney, a certified gunsmith and owner of MMO Tactical Gunsmithing
shop based in Yellowknife, NT. The only certified Firearms Repair shop in all of
the Northwest Territories.
I am a
Graduate of ICS International
career college / Firearms Repair/Gun Pro.
Having always been my old
man’s extra eyes with the binoculars on deer and moose hunts in Nova Scotia it
was time for me to get my own hunters permit. My first rifle was a Lakefield
22LR and that’s when it all began. My trade being a floor layer and many years
as a building maintainer for a major airline company has taught me that quality
work in finishing and safety is absolute priority #1.
Having a passion and respect
for firearms, it was always a hassle to have them sent out of province to have
even the simplest of work done. So I started with doing my own scope mounting
for some friends, then for a friend of a friend and well you get where this is
going. After doing all types of repairs and troubleshooting various
malfunctions, it only seemed natural that I get my certification in firearms
repair and if for nothing else than at least my own personal stuff would be in
top running condition.
Last summer I built a shop on
my property to be my own shop just for firearms maintenance, built to my own
specs just for that purpose. The decision to open a shop was an easy one
coupled with the fact that there wasn’t any shop in Yellowknife that offers
firearm repair services and so it became a logical reality.
The name started with a
combination of two names, my name Marc and my son Marc-Olivier and there MMO
Tactical was born. “Tactical“ being the emphasis that is certainly not all we
are limited too. Anything from new rifle or handgun set up to routine
maintenance right on up to custom AR & 1911 builds, it can all happens right
here in our backyard north of 60.
Major equipment purchases
i.e. metal lathe and milling machines are in the future so we don’t have to send
anything out for re-barreling. However, in the mean time if you don’t mind
having your firearm sent out then that is a service I can offer on a one on one
Your firearm when in my
possession will be securely locked and handled with care. Whether it is your
first new or your father handed to you from his father so on and so forth, great
care will be taken.
I hope to hear from you and I
will be honored to work your firearm(s).
And remember, always prove a
firearm safe when handing one to someone and when being handed one because
firearms safety doesn’t happen by accident and accidents are caused by
Shoot straight and shoot safe!
