    An All New, Invaluable Tool For Any Gun Worker ... Knowledge You Can't Find In Any Other Book Or Source I know you're going to love this book - period. That's not saying it's better than Kinks and Kinks II, because they are both fantastic in their own right. Gunsmith Kinks III continues their legacy of being the finest collection of experience you need to make your gunsmithing, gun-loving and gun-fiddling more rewarding, more fun and more successful. Following the highly acclaimed Gunsmith Kinks and Gunsmith Kinks II, this latest addition to the collection brings you all the Kinks, cures to problems, jigs and fixtures, shop suggestions, cartoons and jokes that appeared in the Newsletter during the 10 years since Kinks II was published. Plus, we've included unpublished Kinks from the files that haven't appeared in the Newsletter prior to publish date because of their length. Every one is shop developed and written in the words of the men who did the work. By himself, no one individual could possibly come up with all of these extraordinarily helpful bits of wisdom; no one guy can live long enough or see enough guns through his shop. With the combined, world-wide collection of knowledge we have for you in Gunsmith Kinks III, you get the handy collection of information. Now, when a problem comes up in your shop that really causes you grief, sure as the world, someone else has been faced with that same problem, figured out a cure, and unselfishly sent that cure along to us for one our four volumes. What great stuff it is!! For instance, we have detailed instructions on glass bedding synthetic stocks; how to properly do pillar bedding; cleaning oil-soaked stocks; extensive instructions for installing pre-threaded, short-chambered barrels; removing frozen choke tubes; a specification and hole-spacing chart for Weaver scope mount bases; 80 pages of instructions and suggestions on bluing, plating and parkerizing and over 400 listings of "Private Label" guns cross-referenced to their original manufacturer's counterparts. Then, 50+ pages of clever, time-saving shop/bench ideas from neat ways to build cleaning systems and sandblast cabinets, to removing rusty recoil pad screws, to making and using some mighty clever jigs and fixtures, to "you-name-it". 260 detailed photographs and drawings - 512 pages - with 778 separate subject headings. Deluxe, heavy-duty hardcover, sewn binding, 3600 entry index, cross-indexed with the original Gunsmith Kinks and Gunsmith Kinks II. Plus, all the jokes "The Newsletter" has become famous for!

    HANDBOOK OF HARD-TO-FIND GUN PARTS DRAWINGS: PAGE-PAK EDITION BROWNELLS

    $49.99$49.99

    By LeeRoy Wisner ... Over 2901 Dimensioned Drawings Covering147 Guns From 36 Manufacturers You know, it doesn’t seem possible that you’d ever be called upon to make even one firing pin spring guide for something like a 1909 Bayard, but if you don’t make a drawing of that first one, it’s virtually guaranteed that another one will come in - and if you’d just made that sketch, you’d have a place to start from for the second one. Well, LeeRoy’s been doing just that. For more than thirty years, he’s been making drawings of many of the internal parts in the guns that came across his bench. These parts aren’t on the factory’s shelf, or anyone else’s for that matter; the only place you’ll find them is in this tremendous volume. And, you don’t have to put in thirty years fixing guns and making drawings before you can start making parts, and profits, LeeRoy’s done all that for you. All you have to do is buy The Handbook... and start with the drawings LeeRoy provides you! This is truly one of the most useful tools you’ll ever buy for your shop. To help you put the book to work, there are two special chapters. Chapter One gives you a good, solid, basic course in steel selection and heat treating, complete with how-to instructions. Chapter Two covers, step-by-step, making a part using one of the drawings, with photos showing the part at various stages of construction. As an added bonus, The Handbook... helps you take advantage of those bargain boxes of assorted parts you find at gun shows or sales. A little time spent flipping pages with a part in-hand can put a name on some of that unidentified “junk”, and turn it into real dollars for you. The drawings are printed on heavy, 60 lb., 8" x 11" stock to make them very durable. And, the pages are punched with oversize holes to make it easy to turn them, without tearing. This is a working book and is furnished loose-leaf. That lets you take out just the page you need for the part you’re building, instead of lugging the whole book around the shop. And, LeeRoy is going to keep on making drawings. As he does, we’ll make sets of these Updates available periodically; you’ll be able to add the new pages to The Handbook... precisely where they belong. We’re offering this Page-Pak Edition since we know that some of you may already have a collection of 3-ring binders lying around. You get all 488 pages of valuable information, the divider tabs and the reinforced end sheets; what’s missing is the Deluxe, D-ring binder. Big Book Catalog, Issue:69, Page:378

We think it may even be better than Gunsmith Kinks (which is fantastic!) because it includes so many more Kinks, so many more "hands-on" cures to shop problems and so many more useful and time-saving jigs, fixtures and drawings. Follows the unprecedented format of Gunsmith Kinks, bringing together in one book all the Kinks, shop suggestions, jokes, cartoons and cures to problems that appeared in the Newsletter and all our catalogs, just as they originally appeared during the 14-year span between the first book, Gunsmith Kinks, and the second book. Plus hundreds of previously unpublished Kinks that never made the Newsletter due to lack of space. Every one is shop developed - shop proven - written by the men who do the work - and written in the language of the gunsmith. It's amazing just how clever and creative our gunsmithing fraternity really is. Some of the cures are so ingenious you want to bang your head against the wall for not thinking of them yourself! But, with the help of Kinks II, you have immediate access to solutions that have been figured out in operating gun shops by the gunsmiths doing the work - it's like having your own friendly, confidential adviser sitting right beside you willing to answer any question you might ask - giving workable cures for your problems, because he has already done them himself. Stuff you just won't find anywhere else - like a complete-as-possible interchangeability list of guns from the manufacturers who made "Private Label" guns; a list of modern formulae for all the old chemicals and solutions (like "sweet spirits of nitre" and more); hundreds of quick cures for really impossible repairs; tips on stocking, bluing/plating, drilling, tapping, hunting, reloading; plus loads of info on specific guns, listed and indexed by gun name.
