Master two essentials skills: gun part geometry, and inletting:

The geometry of old guns is simple, but essential. You must understand each part, how it works, and how it fits other parts.

Practice "contact transfer stain inletting". Apply inletting black, a special grease; press the part into an undersized mortise. Remove, examine, and scrape the smudged area. Repeat until it fits.

Inletting Black: Jet black pigment in a grease base that won't dry out. Simply brush a tiny amount on the part, press it into the mortise, and the "fingerprint" left behind will make interference areas obvious. A few authors call this stuff "inletting compound" or "spotting compound".
