National Rifle Association
Do-It-Yourself Gun Repair
Gunsmithing at Home

by Edward A. Matunas
An authoritative guide to maintaining, repairing, and improving rifles, shotguns, and handguns. Many of the repairs professional gunsmiths make involve replacing broken or worn parts, and you’ll learn to identify and correct these common problems quickly, safely, and easily by following the detailed instructions and illustrations of gunsmithing expert Edward A. Matunas.

Matunas teaches the home gunsmith a wide variety of repairs with easy-to-understand directions and solid, step-by-step advice based on his many years of professional gunsmithing.
The instructions are fully illustrated with photos and drawings as well as exploded views and parts lists, and much of this information can be applied to other guns with similar actions.

EDIT 3/5/15: I did receive this book. It covers very basic stuff and some specifics about a few olders weapons, but not the 1911. I glad I have it, but doubt it's usefulness to me.

Oh, Chica!
There is SO much fear and hand wringing in the word today. People sit in their little boxes, terrified of doing things for themselves. They rely on gunsmiths, plumbers, Obama, and Hillary to make their decisions and care for their every need.

You needn't look far to find plenty of examples of how gunsmiths, plumbers, Obama, and Hillary have failed to adequately address the issues entrusted to them. Since it's clear that these self-proclaimed experts have no magical powers and are highly fallible; would it not make more sense to trust your self before them? After all, we know that you're confident and skillful enough to carry a gun in a life and death situation, so why would you not be competent to turn a screw or replace a spring?

Just as you learned to shoot and handle a gun safely, you can learn to perform mechanical tasks... if you choose to do so. There are plenty of qualified people here who would be happy to lend advice.

A doctor who won't examine the internals of a gun? Nah, can't be.

I ordered the book. I'll let y'all know what I think.

Yep. Actually, I prefer Youtube with moving pictures and voices to tell me what I am seeing.

Figured a book might be a good backup reference down in the shop when I don't have my computer with me.

I'm far from helpless, but my husband can attest to my lack of understanding of mechanical things. Not many people can be good at everything. His eyes glaze over when I try to explain how a heart works. I have the same reaction when he explains how a dynamometer works.

As an example, how long would it take you to spay a dog? Could you do it after reading a book? I can do it in 20 minutes - 15 if it's a small dog. I have lots of skills with biological systems, just not with mechanical devices.
