I bought this book some 20 yrs ago and find it to be the absolute authority for those wanting to build their own longrifle.My copy is right next to my gun bench and is referred to many times during the construction of one of my rifles.If you must decide between two or more books to buy on the subject , this is the one.

I bought this book to guide me on the building of a muzzle loading rifle. It was one of the best books I have purchased on the subject. I highly recommend it if you are looking to assemble from kit or scratch a flint lock or cap lock rifle.

Seriously, for me, this is an essential book/reference that anyone interested in the "Kentucky" Rifle should have on their bookshelf. I learned so about the day to day details of a gunsmith during the "day" from how barrels were made then folded to stocking. I also learned about the system of taxation and internships and how they drove the way in which gunsmith did business. A very rich and detailed book with two full scale plans.

Even if you are not planning on building a longrifle this book is well worth reading just to understand what goes into one of these American treasures. If you are planning on building one, whether from scratch or a kit, this book is essential.
