I still remember my initial taste of this, trying to disassemble my first Browning A-5 semi-automatic shotgun so I could give the gun a detailed cleaning. Without any written instructions in hand I began, honestly fearful of the outcome.
Antique Firearms Assembly/Disassembly : The comprehensive guide to pistols, rifles & shotguns
This little job took me almost nine hours to finish. Now, it did turn out successfully, but if success were measured by time spent, then I certainly did not make a profit on this one! Also, I can remember phoning the late Bob Brownell for help with that one. Bob was a dear old gunsmith friend, the same Bob B. Nevertheless, he always offered the best information he could, for free and regardless of how much time it took from his busy schedule, a wonderful service that his company still provides to the trade today.
On the other end of the spectrum, if all firearms were as simple as the Remington Rolling Block or the Sharps 4-barrel pepperbox about 20 parts in all , then most of us could probably get by just fine without any instructions. Alas, such is not the case and if you have even a little experience trying to disassemble various kinds of firearms, you already understand that.
Having good instructional material is a boon to the average sportsman, but it is vital if you are a working professional.
Thus, when this work was begun, it was with the thought of presenting a good, easy to read manual to aid those who had the need to disassemble antique firearms, taking care to include some of the more unusual older weapons, ones that are not normally covered. It was also our intention to present the material in such a way that the reader would more quickly become familiar with the subject than with earlier presentations. In that light, we have taken the liberty of writing instructions that in many cases will be found suitable for use with both the replica and an original.
Today it is a fact that some replica weapons are being used in greater numbers than originals are; it is for that reason more than any other that in some cases we thought it more appropriate to use internal photos of replica weapons within the instructions. I only wish we had more space, so we could have included a hundred more of these great old guns! This special tool is called a mainspring vise. If you work on old shotguns or muzzle-loaders, this is a handy tool for safely compressing the huge V-shaped mainsprings found in many of these weapons.
Tool courtesy of Dixie Gun Works. In the new millennium, firearms are commonly made from space-age polymers, sophisticated aluminum, fiberglass resin, high-tech stainless steel and even titanium. The key words are low-maintenance, no-rust, non-organic and low-glare.
Flat ugly is considered to be okay, as long as pure functionality is the goal. Machine work, where there is any, is performed largely by computer-controlled, automated machines and many complicated parts are now precision investment castings that require very little, if any, final machining in order to function. Often these modern marvels have rough looking surfaces, finished off with matte, low-glare coatings that are as modern as the parent materials. In many instances, modern weapons can be completely disassembled in short order, using few or sometimes even no tools.
It was not so very long ago that weapons were built very differently from how they are today. In days past, firearms were manufactured in a labor-intensive environment, using mostly finely machined carbon steel.
