More Information
In tough economic times, gun owners are unwilling to pay $75-$125 an hour for repair work, so do-it-yourself gun repair is becoming increasingly popular with gun owners.

According to industry research, more than 1.3 million new pistol and revolvers were sold during 2008, with 1.5 million sold in the used market.

Includes an updated section on today?s hot handguns including the Glock, Springfield XD, and more models for which information has not been previously available.

With the guidance of top gunsmith Patrick Sweeney, beginners, as well as serious enthusiasts, are able to diagnose handgun problems--for once they're the experts, deciding whether to do their own work or leave it up to the professionals. Profusely illustrated step-by-step instructions are presented for do-it-yourself minor repairs and major upgrades, from the how-to's of diagnosing malfunctions in both revolver and semi-automatic pistols to what corrective steps can be taken to solve them.

Sweeney provides a complete look at repairs & upgrades; setting up an efficient and organized workplace, what gunsmithing tools are needed to complete projects, and a thorough series of mini-projects--teaching professional tool-use techniques. Plus, there are chapters on cleaning, polishing and minor repairs, welding and metal joining, recoil reduction, and refinishing.
And, new to this edition, gunsmithing tips are included for polymer-framed pistols.

* Includes a handy troubleshooting guide & a glossary of gunsmithing terms.

* Complete with addresses and phone/fax numbers, this edition also features an updated directory of suppliers & services.
