I enjoy reading from the masters. Some of the instruction can be done easier today with current tools available. But most of the instruction is very relevant today. And gives a sense of where some of these tools/procedures for gunsmiths came from. You might even find a better way to work with firearms than spend every cent you make on tools you may not need.
Quite dated, but useful, especially if you are just starting.
disappointed, Just ok it covers the basics but seems like something they would teach you in the 50's not very up to date
No up to date info
If you want to learn gunsmithing; don't get this book. If you want to know how they did it 75 years ago, get it.
Info is a little outdated. But a good read none the less
Very detailed information
