The full title of this book is "A Master Gunmakers Guide to Building Bolt-Action Rifles."
Published by Paladin Press, the book description is as follows:
"Many people today call themselves gunmakers, but very few have actually
made a gun. Most buy parts wherever available and simply assemble them.
During the past 50 years Bill Holmes has built from scratch countless
rifles, shotguns and pistols of amazing artistry, ranging in caliber
from .17 to .50. He has mastered the art of custom-making all the
component parts himself and earned the right to call himself a gunmaker.
In this book the esteemed gunmaker shows you step-by-step how to make
(or modify) a custom bolt-action rifle in an inexpensive small shop. By
following the simple instructions and mechanic's drawings, you will
discover how to select the design, materials and tools; manufacture the
bolt, trigger, safety and sights; fit, chamber, shape and finish the
barrel; ensure that your heat-treating is done properly; design, checker
and finish the stock; and everything else you need to know to be able
to call yourself a gunmaker."
