The American muzzle-loading rifle, when regarded simply as a shooting device or gun, became obsolete at the close of the Civil War more than 130 years ago. Today, however, tens of thousands of people are interested in these rifles. They study them, read about them, collect them, shoot them, go hunting with them, and they make them.

This book will help with the steps of building a rifle.
