This 62 page booklet was one of the first on building the longrifle. The author shows his work, and scratch builds almost every piece.

All of these parts can now be purchased, but the price of this book will quickly be saved by gunmakers who follow these instructions. Nearly 100 photographs illustrate his techniques.

The series of photos on fitting the buttplate is worth the price! Soft cover, in 5 x 8" format, with separate full-scale 1820 Golden Age longrifle plans included.
