Many of the repairs professional gunsmiths make involve replacing broken or worn parts, and you’ll 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:
