Table of Contents

This hands-on guide will help the reader build or reproduce a fine flintlock or percussion longrifle using hand tools and old techniques developed by Chuck Dixon over fifty years of creating & shooting muzzleloaders. Beginning with a history of American longrifle development and issues the builder should consider before purchasing parts, it covers every step in the building process, including carving the stock from a blank, inletting, engraving, staining and finishing. Generously illustrated and includes a glossary, bibliography and a special section of notes for the revised 2002 edition.
