Offers detailed step-by-step instructions for those who want to repair or upgrade their own shotguns.

Following in the footsteps of his other books on handguns and rifles, Sweeney also tells readers when to call a professional for help and what questions to ask before a professional gunsmith starts working on their shotgun. This is a valuable reference that will save the reader time and money on shotgun repairs.
