Meet the Owners of Carolina Gunworks​


Carolina Gunworks is an established business with more than forty years combined experience in firearms training and repair.

Our goal is to provide the best training and safest quality firearm repairs at reasonable market prices. 

Welcome to Carolina Gunworks. My name is Rod Rice and I am the gunsmith for Carolina Gunworks. I have been repairing and restoring firearms since leaving the U.S. Army in 1992. 


I mentored under my father for several years until I went out on my own. I am a Sornoran Desert Institute Graduate and certified. Even though I specialize in the 1911 platform, I have experience with all other types and manufacture of firearms such as Glock, Sig, Smith and Wesson, Ruger, Remington, Mossberg, Browning, Winchester, and many more.


I can restore that old gun in the back of the closet or assemble that gun parts kit and make them like new. Check out our social media pages to view some of the work I have done.


I look forward to helping you with all your firearm repairs.

Hello, I am Roger, the trainer/instructor at Carolina Gunworks. I am a certified instructor for the NRA and State of North Carolina.


I have been involved with firearms of all types since a very early age. My father taught me to respect the power and use of a firearm (mostly by picking up his brass cases at the range).


During my military career, I had the opportunity to learn and use firearms from several different nations. I have taught all ages and genders many different aspects of firearm use, safety and practical application, along with other life lessons.


With my partner, Rod, I started teaching others about firearms and helped establish Carolina Gunworks. I hope to continue to help others achieve their goals in gun ownership and proper use.


As I continue to grow my certifications list, and education of firearms, it will give me the ability to teach more and more. Thank You for choosing Carolina Gunworks for all of your training and instructional needs.
