Make your rifle shoot better than ever!

Gunsmithing: Rifles takes a look at all major rifle types and gives you practical information on how to make repairs, improve performance and modify your rifle to fit your needs.

In additional to practical information about keeping every rifle ready to shoot, Gunsmithing: Rifles provides specific projects to improve:

  • Mauser actions
  • AR-15s and their clones
  • The Ruger 10/22
  • The Remington Model 700
  • The Winchester model 70
  • Lever-action Rifles
Step-by-step instructions and plenty of photos guide you every step of the way.

As a practicing gunsmith for the past 20 years, Sweeney also knows enough to tell you what not to try. If an operation requires an expert, he'll tell you. He'll also tell you what questions to ask to help you make sure the person you hire is qualified.

If you're in the market for a used rifle, this book also includes tips on getting the most bang for your buck.
