The Complete Guide To Gunsmithing

All right. Some books it’s impossible to really do, like a work book. I’m going to put that one back in the box. I looked through it, tried to make a little video, but I don’t know anything about big trucks systems right now. I’d have to read the book and then the workbook makes sense, right? It’s a two-step process.

So we’re going to go to Complete Guide to Gunsmithing. This one right here.

So there’s other books; The Art of Shooting, The Complete Guide of Gun Collecting. I got a lot of these guys’ books. Is this one of his books? Something Jr. Charles… Nope, this is a different one, Pistolsmithing. There’s a lot into these things.

Lower y’all a little bit. I know you guys can’t really see. I wish there was a way you could read the page too, but whatever. I seen something that looked pretty interesting. Yeah, this has a lot. I’ll show you kind of the different chapters. There we go, yeah, because then you can kind of read your own chapters. I’ll show you what interested me. Oh, they got illustrations, right? That’s always nice.

Remodeling Military Rifles. Right? Where am I? This one here, kind of look over. All right. But they also have illustrations on how to use a steel rule, how to use dividers, workbench for gunsmith, gunsmith tools. So it looks like they’re literally kind of… Oh, whoa, yeah. Look. And their drawings. If you want to learn how to make a gun, then this is how you do it, right? Not like a 3-D printer gun, but an old fashion, real gun, wood and everything.

All right. 323. Oh yeah. Look at this. I mean, it literally breaks everything down. Someone drew this. 323. Military rifles are preferred by an overwhelming majority of hunters for several reasons. They can be bought at low prices from the United States government in times of peace, the ammunition is readily available in all parts of the United States and Canada, they have high velocity and flat trajectory. Both the arms and ammunition are highly accurate, they are rugged construction and require a minimum amount of repair work. They’re designed and built to fit the average man’s body. Gunsmiths and gun supply houses are well acquainted with their characteristics and keep a good stock of replacement parts on hand. And, finally, a great number of men and boys become familiar with them from carrying them in the various high schools and private academies, the National Guard, the state guards, the state militias, the neighbor reserve, the neighbor militia, and the regular armed services. For these reasons we shall constantly create this discussion upon the military rifles of the United States in general use today. But our remarks will apply with considerable force to other military arms.

I mean, usually I don’t really like reading a whole paragraph, but the way they put that was, I almost couldn’t stop reading. I don’t want to stop reading. I’m already interested. It’s going to be difficult, I don’t want to read the whole thing to you.

And then it goes into the M-14, the 7.62mm, or millimeter, the M-14. Wow this is cool. You see what I’m saying? They literally break it down for you so you can.. So what I’ll end up doing with this one…The Springfield rifle. Oh, wow. So the Springfield rifle I’m pretty sure they used it to fight the Indians, or to slaughter the Indians. Is that the Springfield bolt action rifle? Which one are they talking about? Yeah, see? The Springfield, I don’t know if you can see it. See the bolt action? Super accurate. Yeah, see? You can see it right here.

You can pause the video and you can look over the parts more yourself. Yeah, the United States rifle caliber .3 model 1903 is a breech loading magazine rifle of a bolt type, is commonly called the Springfield rifle. It was a principle infantry weapon of the first world war. It was used in action by the United States Marine Corps during World War One and Two, to some extent during the Korean war, and in some small wars. The Marine Corps fought overseas from World War One to the Korean war. It was used by landing forces of the Navy, when they went ashore with Marines.

Officially this rifle is now obsolete, but it is one of the guns of glory and is used by thousands of civilian hunters and marksman. It is described and illustrated in this chapter as it existed in 1917 because this is the original fundamental form from which later modifications were developed. See plate 33.

All right. This is more than just quick guns, right? Because we’re from the Springfield rifle to… Oh man, this is terrible. This is way too many pages. There’s no way I can break this down to 400. I like it. Right. I like this book. It’s very interesting. It’s one of those books you can truly get lost in for a while. I already talked seven minutes so I got shut up. So I’m going to talk faster. Well, no, probably not. I’m going to talk about Springfield, redoing the military rifles, and then the M-15, is that what it was? The M 14. All right.
