Part 2, Working with Stocks
Having started your gunsmithing library with solid, basic texts, it’s time to expand into specifics, beginning with stock work.

Following the original publishing of the previously discussed Gunsmithing classics by authors such as Howe and Baker (American Gunsmith, October 2009), I think it is likely that some people read these somewhat general books and thought, “I could write a book on just one of the specific topics discussed by these earlier authors.” Even before Dunlap could get his book on generalized gunsmithing published, this is just what happened. Of course it is likely a little thing called World War II and military service delayed Dunlap’s book by a few years!
