Cutting spiral grooves inside the barrel is now within the grasp of the serious home craftsman. In eleven chapters, the author explains the theory of rifling and styles of grooves, building a suitable rifling bench, drilling, straightening, reaming, rifling, lapping, and breeching the barrel. Proof testing and safety issues are emphasized.

If your rifle barrel will not shoot accurately, due to wear, neglect, rust, pitting, or perhaps a new barrel with some invisible factory flaw, you may be ready to order a new barrel. Try lapping the bore! The author explains how to make a lapping rod to polish the rifled bore, new or old. A bit of clever lapping can often restore a bore to its best accuracy potential.

Soft cover spiral bound volume of 54 pages, 8-1/2 x 11" format, illustrated with drawings of the tools and techniques, followed by photographs of the actual tools in use. Photos of targets, with details of the charges fired in these hand rifled bores, prove their worth.

  • Chapter 1 Theories and styles of rifling
  • Chapter 2 Building the bench for drilling, reaming, and rifling
