Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Diagnose and repair a broad selection of popular hunting firearms in the convenience of your home workshop and save money, too. Do-It-Yourself Gun Repair is an authoritative guide to maintaining, repairing, and improving rifles, shotguns, and handguns. Many of the repairs professional gunsmiths make involve replacing broken or worn parts, and youll learn to identify and correct these common problems quickly, safely, and easily by following the detailed instructions and illustrations of gunsmithing expert Edward A. Matunas.

Matunas teaches the home gunsmith a wide variety of repairs with easy-to-understand directions and solid, step-by-step advice based on his many years of professional gunsmithing. Topics include:

• Hand and power tool suggestions for home gunsmithing

• Replacing firing pins, extractors, and ejectors

• Analyzing and correcting accuracy problems

• Top-notch information about bedding the barrel and bore

• Easy installation of scopes, mounts, sights, and recoil pads

• Repair of splits and cracks in stocks

• Avoiding common mistakes and time-consuming double work

A unique feature of this book is a section covering disassembly, repair, and reassembly of seven of the most popular firearms: Remington 700, Remington 1100, Remington 870, Winchester 94, Savage 110, Marlin 336, and Marlin 70. The instructions are fully illustrated with photos and drawings as well as exploded views and parts lists, and much of this information can be applied to other guns with similar actions.


A practical guide to keeping your rifles, shotguns, and handguns in top working condition.
