The Gunsmith's Manual: A Complete Handbook for the American Gunsmith, Being a Practical Guide to All Branches of the Trade by J. P. Stelle & William B. Harrison

Originally published in 1883, The Gunsmith's Manual is generally considered to be the first substantive work dealing with gunsmithing exclusively and in detail. A comprehensive introductory chapter, one of the manual's best qualities, provides the reader with an extensive history of the gun, including the invention of gun powder, the first rifle, and much more. Once acquainted with firearms, readers can then move on to learn how guns were made and used in the nineteenth century, as well as terms used in gunsmithing.

The real meat of the book, however, is the authors' detailed instruction on gun care and maintenance. Specifics are offered on tools, workbench materials and setup, metalworking, working with wooden stocks, common repairs, and the process of browning, among many other topics. You can even improve your marksmanship with these expert shooting tips for a variety of firearms.

Although first published in the nineteenth century, The Gunsmith's Manual is highly relevant for today's firearms owners and tinkerers. The authors' recommended procedure for removing a rusted-in screw, for example, is still widely used over 100 years later. You can learn to care for your rifle or shotgun as traditional gunsmiths would have. For both the historian and the firearms enthusiast, The Gunsmith's Manual is an invaluable learning tool.
