First, let me say that, when I ordered this book, I knew it was copy of the 1946 edition. Please understand that if you order a copy. I ordered it to preserve my original 1946 first edition. However, the material is still valuable today and should be on the bookshelf of any aspiring gunsmith. The original deserves five stars. My problem is with the BNPublishing edition. Even though they claim a 2013 copyright date, the only new material is the cover artwork. Not only that, the actual original contents are incomplete. BNPublishing has chosen to leave out all the unpaginated (and valuable) figures and illustrations, as well as the last six pages of the index. And in producing the facsimile, while enlarging the page size, they have reduced the text size to 96% of the original. Small, but noticeable. My biggest complaint is the use of GLOSS black ink on bright white paper. It makes the book difficult to read under anything but the best lighting conditions. I would recommend finding a good used copy of the original before buying this edition.

I have put much effort into reading gunsmith books, and my view is the "NEW" books are just crap. This book combined with the book by Roy Dunlap, have been the most useful. They are both dated, so if you are interested in fixing an AR, this wont help. However, if you want to learn how to tune a revolver, how guns actually work this is the book for you. Unlike the new works it does not mention brownells catalog on every page, which is nice. It was written in a time when the purpose of a book was to transmit information and not just advertise more products.
I have taken the AGI professional gunsmith series and this book seems to follow the premiss of teaching design function and repair.

Anyway, I'm surprised to see so few reviews becuase this is a hidden classic.

While this books is obviously around 50 years old (he mentions that "the war" will probably have a negative impact on Germany's gun industry), some information is simply timeless. In these days of CNC and computer-driven milling, this book still contains a wealth of invaluable information. Sometimes there are issues that you just can't fix with your $20,000 lathe, and this book can help explain many of them away.

This book has already paid for itself 5 times over in my gunsmithing business, as it's helped me resolve several issues that some of the "new age" smiths in town were clueless about. By the time the customers came to me, they thought their gun was trashed... this book helped save their weapons, and made me some cash in the process! I have no issues giving it 5 stars.

This is one excellent book for a novice and intermediary level gunsmith. Even though it was written in the late 40s or early 50s, this book is NOT, obsolete or irrelevant. It contains a wealth of useful information and actually explains the "why" in addition to "how-to". It covers the fundamentals really well. The only other volume that also deserves a 5 star rating is the book by Roy Dunlap called "Gunsmithing". Get both of these volumes if you are serious about learning the fundamentals.
Yndanol
This book is full of useful info even for veteran smiths. It is focused more on operating the business and being a professional in the industry. Not really for the folks that like to tinker on their weapons for fun. I highly recommend you pick up a copy if you do this for a living.
Jube
Chock full of information, but really geared toward practical restoration and tuning, A good book, but not really for hard core design / metallurgy etc.
Jusari
Good reference.
The outdated nature of the book loses it a star. All people who tinker with guns can learn a great deal from this text.
