A companion to Recreating the American Longrifle this book illustrates the theory and practice of making your own double barrel flint or percussion shotgun.

The author uses many lovely photographs of original guns and guns of his own make, as well as line drawings to illustrate his techniques. The author shows how to adapt commonly available modern barrels, matching right and left locks, triggers, triggerguards, and other parts, for use in scratch building a double shotgun.

This popular book, first published in 1985, out of print for over a decade, has been updated by the author, Bill Brockway, an architect and enthusiastic shotgun builder and shooter.
