    Continuing the proud tradition of the first three books, the fourth member of the family adds more Kinks to help you conquer problems in the shop, new ideas for tools and time-saving fixtures, plus lots of business and shop tips and, of course, all the jokes that have appeared in the Newsletter since Kinks III came out back in 1993. And, we’ve added many Kinks and jokes that haven’t appeared in any Newsletter.  You might think that after three previous volumes of Gunsmith Kinks Books there just wouldn’t be anything new left to say about gunsmithing. But, you’d be seriously underestimating the ingeniuty of your fellow gunsmiths and tinkerers. Matter of fact, we think they’re more inventive than anyone else. New guns are introduced which need to be repaired; new games are invented which require different modifications to the guns used; and gun folks don’t hesitate to tell their fellow gunsmiths (even if they could be competitors), the incredibly unique Kinks they use to help get the work done, and done right, in their own shops. We’ve collected 569 original how-to Kinks, 332 illustrations, plus 64 pages of our latest instructions on a variety of processes - from Color Case Hardening to applying our Bake-On finishes and more, then added in “how-to” articles reprinted from Brownells BenchTalk newsletter and a whole chapter dedicated to advice on running your shop, and increasing profits. You’ll find 133 pages with 167 job-specific Kinks for handguns, rifles, and shotguns; a method to keep tiny springs and parts from vaporizing into space, tricks to make your drill press more versatile, some sample dream shop layouts; and that’s just a very partial list. All this information creates a fantastic collection we absolutely couldn’t have put together without the help of our incredibly dedicated customers. One ’smith, or even a dozen in twelve shops, will never run into all the jobs or problems for which solutions are included in Gunsmith Kinks IV. The sum total of know-how contained is truly mind-boggling. You get to tap into the job files of the world’s best gunsmiths and take advantage of the hours they spent figuring out how to fix the problem that’s sitting on your bench! If just one of the 569 Kinks in this book saves you 1 or 2 hours of figuring out how-the-heck, or a business tip brings in one new customer, you’ve paid for your copy of Kinks IV - everything else it helps you do is gravy!

    Over 1,600 Exploded View Photos, Blueprints, Sketches, Schematic Drawings, Cutaway Photos And Drawings.By Bob Brownell, 1,066 Pages, 8-½x11 inches Before the publication of The Encyclopedia late in 1959, absolutely no service manual encompassing all American-made guns was available for the gunsmith, dealer or hobbyist. What information was to be had, had to be dug out the hard way - and at best it was skimpy. As the guns covered in The Encylopedia get older, the information becomes even more valuable; what little other info was available has long since gone out of print, original manuals have been lost and today's gunsmith might have to pass up repair or restoration work on "Dad's favorite", without The Encylopedia. It answers hundreds (and thousands!) of questions and problems. As so many have told us after getting their copy: "It paid for itself the first day I owned it - just in time saved alone." Here's what you'll find in your Enyclopedia: DEPARTMENT OF THE ARMY TECHNICAL MANUALS - Especially released for The Encyclopedia, they cover base repair and maintenance for the '03 Springfield and later modifications; the 1911 pistol, Remington Models 10 and 11; Winchester Models 12 and 97; Stevens 520/620; Savage 720 and Ithaca 37. All with detailed illustrations and nomenclature lists. NEW GUN INSTRUCTIONS that most manufacturers issue with each new gun, giving assembly and disassembly instructions, PLUS the extensive GUNSMITH MANUALS of Winchester, Remington and Browning up to the date of printing (late 1959). UNUSUAL ILLUSTRATIONS from the files of the manufacturers showing the functioning of many of the guns. Most are no longer available, many were never publicly released. ALL AVAILABLE PARTS ILLUSTRATIONS & LISTS - Many of these are either exploded view or schematic, showing where parts go and in what order they are assembled. "Our illustration is worth 10,000 words!" ILLUSTRATIONS OF ALL NEW GUNS being manufactured in the U.S. as of Jan. 1, 1959, for which information is available . . . complete specifications given on each number and model. DETAILED MEASUREMENTS IN CHART FORM of the thousands of pins, screws, and helical springs shown in all the parts lists. Only those of very unusual construction or function are not shown. This information available in printed form nowhere else in the world. KNOWLEDGE AT YOUR FINGERTIPS   Each manufacturer is grouped alphabetically, starting with Department of Defense Technical Manuals, then Browning, Colt and so on. Each manufacturer is subdivided in the following order: 1. Illustrations and technical data. 2. Where available, illustrations which depict the working parts. 3. Manufacturer's new gun instruction literature. 4. Complete parts lists ('tho parts are now only available from specialty sources and prices aren't current). 5. Parts data pages giving specifications for pins, screws and springs.   If you've ever paid $15 to $35 for a single manual covering one model automobile or one series of technical equipment, you'll be amazed at the vast amount of material for so reasonable a price.(Quantity prices available.

    THE MAGNIFICENT CLASSIC THE ENGRAVING WORLD HAS BEEN WAITING FOR THE ART OF ENGRAVING brings to the reader - for the first time ever - a complete, authoritative, imaginative and detailed introduction and training in the art of gun engraving. It is a supremely unique book, for not only does it sweep aside the mystery which has surrounded engraving through the centuries, but it factually, simply and in layman's terms tells you how to engrave. Unlike so many so-called "instruction manuals", The Art of Engraving does not assume you know anything about engraving. You start at the beginning by learning to draw scrolls and layouts, then cut practice plates until you are sure enough of your ability to actually proceed to designing a pattern, transferring it to a gun and cutting it into the steel. Whether you want to learn to engrave now . . . think you might like to in the future . . . or simply wish to broaden your knowledge of the art to be able to better judge the work of others (as you will learn to tell the good from the bad - and know why), this is the book for you.Every gunsmith, gun lover or craftsman - no matter what his other calling - has the soul of an artist. This personal, creative urge can be easily directed into the highly renumerative field of gun engraving through the coaching, no-nonsense instructions and technical support in The Art of Engraving. Chapters include: Design and Layout; Materials; Anatomy; Lettering; The Camera; Beginning to Engrave; Advanced Engraving and The Gravermeister. Hundreds of original engravings, designs and layouts by the author (plus samples from other master engravers) to explain specific points and techniques. Much of the original work is intended for you to copy and transfer to your own guns to create an engraving job you can be proud of having done. 208 extremely handsome 8½" x 11" pages. Over 1378 photographs, drawings, designs, layouts and illustrations. Deluxe, hardbound cloth covers. Bound a special way to lie flat. Printed on finest, dull-finished, coated paper available. Extensive use of color to highlight designs, illustrations, pictures. Thoroughly cross-referenced index. Comprehensive listing of reference books of design, equipment, precious metals, books. Written to be used on your bench; magnificent enough for the parlor . . . but above all, intended to teach you how to engrave a gun.   We asked James B. Meek, author of The Art Of Engraving for his recommendations. This is what he wrote: "Perhaps 90% of all the scroll work in engraving can be done with the following tools". Point Graver No. 4 will cut most scrolls. Fine detail is cut with 0 Point. Knife No. 2 is also for detail. The Square is perhaps the most widely used, can also be sharpened as a point, or a chisel, Flat Nos. 36 and 37, and Round Nos. 50 and 54 are needed for lettering on high relief.

    By LeeRoy Wisner ... Over 2901 Dimensioned Drawings Covering 147 Guns From 36 ManufacturersYou 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. The Deluxe Edition has all the information, 488 pages worth!, in a heavy-duty, solid vinyl, three D-ring binder that will stand up to years of use, plus the solvents and oils commonly found in the gun shop. The title is printed on the binder’s front cover and spine in gold ink for a very classy look. Big Book Catalog, Issue:69, Page:378

This companion volume to The M1911 Complete Owner’s Guide takes you step-by-step through building a custom 1911 pistol from component parts, or by upgrading a stock pistol into a tack-driving match gun. Not only tells you the “how” of a procedure, but explains why it’s done, cautioning about pitfalls, giving tips, and describing the resulting benefits. Includes chapters on frame and slide fitting, grip safety installation, barrel fitting, slide assembly, sight installation, frame assembly, final assembly, and finishes. Don’t work on any 1911 until you read this book.
