"Homebuilt Firearms" is a great initiation for hobbyists who wish to try building a real gun from scratch, using only standard garage tools, NOT milling machines or lathes. Such a project is definitely a great learning and skill building experience for a person who enjoys gun sports and shooting-- and unusual, challenging projects. Starting with a used .22 barrel from a gun show, and adding some scrap Steel, a hobby builder can utilize his ingenuity and skills... using a drill press, grinders, wire welder, a hacksaw, files, etc. and can indeed build a firearm, first a repeater Single Action model, then a Double Action weapon. The rifle project described here is a functional ten shot .22 rifle. It offers a fun and rewarding building experience for any mechanically minded individual, an achievement to be enjoyed and used.

The book is now availabe on Amazon Kindle for about $7.50 Large format, lots of photos and illustrations. It is a 10 shot .22, but now Mr. Hartman is building a .45 carbine. Perhaps 5 or 6 shots. Keep an eye out... these are great projects!
