Hello,

I was wondering if anyone here can recommend books on general gunsmithing. Perhaps there are some classics that any person working on firearms should own.
Any machine shop books that are useful to create parts would also be welcome

Thank you

Gunsmithing by Roy Dunlap is a very good classic if somewhat dated.
All of the Gunsmith Kinks (1-4) from Brownells are great.
The NRA Gunsmithing Guide-Updated is good.
The Amateur Guncraftsman by James V. Howe is very dated (1938) but has some good info.
Modern Gunsmithing by Clyde Baker is even more dated (1928) but is considered a standard in the field.
