  • An All New, Invaluable Tool For Any Gun Worker
  • Knowledge You Can’t Find In Any Other Book Or Source

I know you’re going to love this book – period. That’s not saying it’s better than Kinks and Kinks II, because they are both fantastic in their own right. Gunsmith Kinks III continues their legacy of being the finest, most current, most up-to-date collection of experience you need to make your gunsmithing, gun-loving and gun-fiddling more rewarding, more fun and more successful.

Following the highly acclaimed Gunsmith Kinks and Gunsmith Kinks II, this latest addition to the collection brings you all the Kinks, cures to problems, jigs and fixtures, shop suggestions, cartoons and jokes that appeared in the Newsletter during the 10 years since Kinks II was published. Plus, we’ve included brand-new unpublished Kinks from the files that haven’t appeared in the Newsletter yet because of their length. Every one is shop developed and written in the words of the men who did the work.

By himself, no one individual could possibly come up with all of these extraordinarily helpful bits of wisdom; no one guy can live long enough or see enough guns through his shop. With the combined, world-wide collection of knowledge we have for you in Gunsmith Kinks III, you get the handiest, doggonedest collection of information yet. Now, when a problem comes up in your shop that really causes you grief, sure as the world, someone else has been faced with that same problem, figured out a cure, and unselfishly sent that cure along to us for one of the three volumes.

What great stuff it is!! For instance, we have detailed instructions on glass bedding synthetic stocks; how to properly do pillar bedding; cleaning oil-soaked stocks; extensive instructions for installing pre-threaded, short-chambered barrels; removing frozen choke tubes; a specification and hole-spacing chart for Weaver scope mount bases; 80 pages of instructions and suggestions on bluing, plating and parkerizing and over 400 new listings of "Private Label" guns cross-referenced to their original manufacturer’s counterparts. Then, 50+ pages of clever, time-saving shop/bench ideas from neat ways to build cleaning systems and sandblast cabinets, to removing rusty recoil pad screws, to making and using some mighty clever jigs and fixtures, to "you-name-it".

260 detailed photographs and drawings – 512 pages – with 778 separate subject headings. Deluxe, heavy-duty hardcover, sewn binding, 3600 entry index, cross-indexed with the original Gunsmith Kinks and Gunsmith Kinks II. Plus, all the jokes "The Newsletter" has become famous for!
