Originally printed in 1883, The Gunsmith's Manual is generally considered to be the first substantive work dealing with gunsmithing in detail. Includes an extensive history of the gun, including the invention of gun powder, the first rifle and information on gun care, maintenance, tools, metalworking, repairs, browning and much more. Still highly relevant for today's firearm owners and builders - the author's recommendation for removing a rusted-in screw, for example, is still widely used over one hundred years later.

  • History of the gun
