Comments to eBook Do-It-Yourself Gun Repair

I thought this book might be too basic, but it turns out there is a lot of good info here. I really think everybody would do well to read this book, if for nothing else, to appreciate the value of your local gunsmith. Pretty quickly it becomes apparent that to do many jobs right, purchasing high-quality specialized tools is necessary, and it doesn't make sense for every guy with a gun out there to have many of these tools. I know of people who buy 800 dollar scopes and then just crank 'em down with an ill-fitting Harbor Freight screw driver or whatever. Maybe it would be worth paying a gunsmith for a half-hour (which will be about 30 bucks) to put on that $800 scope right?

The importance of cleaning and the gradual degradation of accuracy due to barrel fowling is addressed. I cannot emphasize enough that 90% of the rifles I've encountered which couldn't shoot (and it wasn't because of a corroded, pitted barrel) was due to extremely heavy copper fouling. It seems like that maybe 5% of people manage to thoroughly clean their rifles, and it is no wonder, the junk cleaning kits sold in stores are next to useless. I really appreciated how Matunas went though cleaning!

Most of us have come to understand the differences between performing routine maintenance and accessory installation, and chambering and fitting a new barrel. If you are standing in the midst of expensive machinery, and you know how to use the equipment with a quality result, you don't need this book. If you'd like to install your own scopes, recoil pads, replace small parts and tinker with a gun to improve its accuracy, you would probably find this book to be useful.

"Do-It-Yourself Gun Repair" is presented into five logical parts: An Approach to Gunsmithing in the Home Workshop, Basic Maintenance and Repair, Disassembly - Repair and Reassembly of Popular Firearms, Advanced Techniques, and The Final Steps. The book begins by showing ways of assessing if your firearms need work or maintenance, then it move on to a chapter dedicated to determining the scope of work that could reasonably attempted. There is a chapter presenting common and useful hand tools and a brief section covering frequently used power tools. The section that follows, which addresses the work area, special tools and parts supplies is pretty sketchy. A chapter titled "Thinking Like a Gunsmith" is thoughtful, but not substantial enough in content to assist someone in acting on some of the suggestions.

"Basic Maintenance" is more of a page filler. It mostly advises how to clean a firearm, something that could be found in many sources, including packaged in a cleaning kit. A follow on section covering analyzing and correcting accuracy problems is well written and, based on my own experience, would be very useful to almost anyone. "Ten Easy Gunsmithing Projects" is OK, but the projects are a little specialized and most lead to purchasing tools or material Brownells. The section isn't bad, I just believe there are more universal and common projects, and I am not taking a poke at Brownells. They are one of the best tool and material sources out there for us gun owners.

There is an excellent section regarding proper scope mounting that results in centered optics and proper hardware alignment, and included the proper use of shims under mounts for the purpose of leveling. This is an area so fundamental to good accuracy and frequently people don't take the time to perform this task correctly. The section on various firearm disassembly and assembly is actually very good. The author includes popular firearms, very good illustrations and photos, assembly tips, and coverage of common problem correction for each specific firearm.

Some of the information offered in other sections is not so directly useful. You are not going to learn how to checker from half a page of text and one picture of a checkering tool; artistic craft work takes a lot of talent and practice to master. There is an eight page chapter, chapter 23, dedicated to drilling and tapping a firearm for sights that is decently done, but you would need to purchase a $160 B Square Professional Drill Jig or a $400+ Foster Scope Mounting Jig to do the job, and you would have to possess the basic skills of drilling and tapping and how to properly set up fixtures. There is a good information addressing the repair of stocks and fitting a recoil pad, but they all presume prior woodworking and machine operating skills and the use of some specialized machinery and fixtures. Work of this types, to justify the cost of fixtures, needs to be a frequent requirement or it is easier and less expensive to drop the gun off with a good gunsmith. Still, it doesn't hurt to know what you are asking a gunsmith to accomplish when you purchase services.

This book does contain very useful bits of information, and certainly for the price is worth considering adding to the library for any dedicated enthusiast. However as another reviewer suggested, the tone of this book really is more geared towards an aspiring professional gunsmith than it is for the typical DIYer who is looking to do basic tasks. Therefore the title of the book in my opinion is misleading.

Another thing is that at least half of the information in this book is specialized. What I mean is that the tasks are geared for a specific project on a specific weapon. Certainly while the principles of a given job should carry over to similar rifles, it is a point worth considering for someone who is looking for more generalized knowledge.

Also, some information I do not necessarily agree with either. Case and point is the section on cleaning. His basic idea of cleaning is that after 15-20 shots, the rifle should be cleaned essentially for every shot fired, and he suggests that the procedure (because of soaking times) can take up to a week to perform! In my opinion that is simply being too anal, and I doubt even necessary (hunting rifles) or even desirable (many will claim... and I tend to agree... that EXCESSIVE cleaning does more harm than good because of the wear and tear it creates). Never mind that realistically I think few people have the time or inclination to be that slavishly devoted to cleaning their weapons!

Not bad, but overall I feel that for the DIYer, Sweeney's book "Gunsmithing Rifles" is a better choice.

The author spends the first 40 pages explaining tools and work area set-up - a bit much, I think, Based on the title, I expected detailed information on how to perform a broad range of gun repeirs. There were a few of these specifics, but the author picked seven weapons and gives us parts breakdowns on them - fine if you happen to own one of this limited number of weapons - and general repairs on those. He also provides a few generic repair procedures, but not nearly enough to justify the title.

Many of the other repairs require tools, jigs, and equipment not likely to be owned by most do-it-yourselfers. Perhaps my expectations were unrealistic, but I doubt I'll be doing much of my own gun repair work if this book is my only guide.

I would have expected bluing to be covered, since it can be done at home with care. But there was just a brief mention of a "touch-up" bluing kit and no information on refinishing the metal parts.

Essentially, the book tells us that, unless we're already pretty sharp on gun repair, we'd better hand off the job to a professional. Disappointing.
