Make your rifle shoot better than ever!

Gunsmithing: Rifles takes a look at all major rifle types and gives you practical information on how to make repairs, improve performance and modify your rifle to fit your needs.

In additional to practical information about keeping every rifle ready to shoot, Gunsmithing: Rifles provides specific projects to improve:

  • Mauser actions
  • AR-15s and their clones
  • The Ruger 10/22
  • The Remington Model 700
  • The Winchester model 70
  • Lever-action Rifles
Step-by-step instructions and plenty of photos guide you every step of the way.

As a practicing gunsmith for the past 20 years, Sweeney also knows enough to tell you what not to try. If an operation requires an expert, he'll tell you. He'll also tell you what questions to ask to help you make sure the person you hire is qualified.

If you're in the market for a used rifle, this book also includes tips on getting the most bang for your buck.

5.0 out of 5 stars a wealth of information at a very small price May 1 2000
By Joe D
Format:Paperback
"Gunsmithing: Rifles offers an abundance of quality, useful information in the form of specific instruction for home shop projects. I'm not suggesting the book's contents are simplistic, but rather the range of information spans from detail to conceptual, which provides a good foundation of knowledge before projects are attempted.
There are virtually no chapters that would not be of value to the average firearms enthusiast, so I didn't feel I purchased the book only for the contents of one or two good chapters. There is a section on refreshing hunting rifles. The coverage includes correcting poor accuracy, refinishing wood and metal parts, drilling and taping scope mounts and metallic sights. But the information continues on into action/bolt lapping, rechambering, changing a bolt handle, installing a new safety....
I would have purchased the book just for the coverage of trigger work. Finally, a current, inexpensive book that provides detailed coverage of trigger replacement and tuning, by rifle manufacturer, including do's and don'ts for each model. I followed the book to clean up the trigger on a Winchester M70 that's been waiting to get dropped off at the gunsmith for the past 8 months, and had excellent results.
Great book

Was not exactly what I expected, but still a very useful and quality reference source.

Well worth the price, and well worth getting more if the same.

3.0 out of 5 stars Average Sept. 5 2001
Format:Paperback
This book is perhaps a good introductory text for those who do not have or do not wish to invest in gunsmithing equipment. Topics covered are largely mundane and include: scope mounting, bedding, boresighting, etc. Much of this information could be had from the instructions that come with the materials listed. There are a few genuine jewels of information that probably make it worth its' modest price. It is a superb book for the neophyte, or someone who simply wishes to be an informed consumer of Gunsmithing services.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Reference for the Novice July 24 2008
By Longhorn Engineer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is well written and contains excellent information ... with the caveat that if you are a grizzled veteran in gunsmithing, it's not for you. Having said that, fairly experienced "do-it-yourselfers" might still pick up some info they don't already know. Simply look over the Table of Contents and decide. I would say that the chapter on how to examine used guns alone makes it worth the price. Of course, this book gives a lot more such as scope mounting and trigger adjustments. So if you like to do things yourself, but need a little guidence in unchartered territory, this book is for you. One last comment. This book does not delve into any hardcore work requiring machining, such as truing an action or the like.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good approach Feb. 18 2012
By Phil - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Gunsmithing: Rifles is an easy read for someone with novice level of gun knowledge. If you know the barrel from the butt stock, but want to know more, then this is a good place to start.

The font is easy to read with captions for pictures being bold, to allow the eye to easily focus on them. The pictures are good, but suffer a lack of clarity due to printing in grey scale.

Overall I've found this to be an enjoyable read.

2.0 out of 5 stars Old, out of date, poorly published Sept. 12 2013
By Hack - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Book appears to be a series of old magazine articles. All the photos are black and white, low resolution, and of limited, if any help. This one will be going into the recycling bin, re-gifted (as a white elephant), or left at a doctor's office. Don't waste your money on it.
