A historical landmark title on the practice of gunsmithing. Widely regarded as one of the foremost bibles of gunsmithing of its time, Vickery’s Advanced Gunsmithing is still relevant to this day. With in-depth explanations on different gunsmithing tools, gun parts, and methods, this technical resource complements other modern titles in the contemporary gunsmithing book market. Vickery’s passion for tools, and the firearms he could manipulate with them, gives this book its spirit of resourcefulness and experimentation. Different aspects of gunsmithing are highlighted in the book’s twenty chapters, such as barreling, chambering, action, and other kinds of metal-working. Vickery also attempts to reduce the gunsmither’s reliance on hard-to-find tools, and often describes alternate methods where possible. The informational text is supplemented by detailed illustrations, which are in turn accompanied by live photographs so that the reader can accurately compare his or her work to the text’s instruction. Vickery’s clear and precise instruction covers gunsmithing essentials and techniques for both the amateur and professional smith. The book’s historical significance and previous rare editions make it a valuable collector’s item for any firearm enthusiast. Classic and practical, Advanced Gunsmithing is a noteworthy companion to the gunsmither’s workbench.

Elementary Gunsmithing

A Manual of Instruction for Amateurs in the Alteration and Repair of Firearms

Author: Perry D. Frazer

A beginner’s guide to the ins and outs of guncraftsmanship from a professional gunsmith. When it was first published in 1938, Elementary Gunsmithing was one of the few books of the time to address an amateur audience, among more advanced titles. With clear, engaging, and instructional prose, Frazer takes beginner firearm interest to the next level by talking the reader through the fundamentals of gunsmithing, such as what tools are necessary for the craft, how to solder and mount parts, and even how to conduct a fledgling gunsmithing business. He specifically addresses the “young man who likes working at the bench,” and similarly the book reflects the spirit of innovation, resourcefulness, and do-it-yourself work. While the book may not cover contemporary firearms, it offers a grandfatherly, old-school instructional vibe with accurate information about guns up to the 1940s. Frazer focuses on gunsmithing with ordinary hand tools at the work bench, rather than complicated machinery. These helpful tips and information, which are still applicable today, make Elementary Gunsmithing a useful, classic, and historically significant reference for both amateurs and budding gunsmithers keen on building a full-time business. Skyhorse Publishing is proud to publish a broad range of books for hunters and firearms enthusiasts.
