The book of fairly inclusive with sections on the most common repairs and customization that older firearms are likely to require. There are some sections that could be better illustrated and it seems that even our small shop has a better selection of tools on hand than the author (which is likely due to the age of the material). Also, like all books of this type, it is important to use your best judgement and not proceed if a technique is presented that doesn't seem right or is above your skill set.
Also consider Pistolsmithing (Stackpole Classic Gun Books), which is also a good resource on older firearms.
I agree with some of the reviews, in that this book is old, But I think Old School is the best. This book is fine the way it is, if it were updated it would loose all it's charm. Most all the key information is ageless and timeless for learning some of the basic gunsmithing skills.
