A Disassembly & Gunsmithing Manual for Winchester 1873 rifles and carbines

This manual presents instructions on how to successfully disassemble your 1873 lever-action Winchester rifle. All 1873 rifles are dissembled in a similar manner, with only minor differences between sporting rifles and carbines and between the early and late models. This manual will first outline the history of the 1873 Winchester, then provide information on what tools will be needed in order to properly disassemble your gun. This will be followed with diagrams-schematics needed for reference during the entire disassembly, and finally the step-by-step disassembly process itself. There will be multiple steps involved in the dismantling of your 1873 Winchester. Each section of the gun-disassembly process will be treated as a STEP throughout the E-book, thus enabling you to move among the takedown instruction STEPS for various sections of the gun. For example, if you only need to look at the hammer, you can proceed directly to that STEP number. Because each section of the dismantling process is set up by area of the gun, anyone interested in only a portion of the dismantling can thus quickly skip directly to that step. The final step will include some tips on reassembling your gun.

You will find that, by carefully following the instructions of this book, dismantling an 1873 Winchester is a fairly easy and straight-forward process (when compared to other guns). The whole process requires only a minimum of tools, items that most people will probably already have in their home or shop.

This is a spiral bound manual with many photos of the actual dismantling of a gun, large print for easy reading. AND as a bonus, the digital EBook will come to you immediately when you order the spiral bound edition!   Don't loose value in your firearm by using the incorrect tools or removing parts in the incorrect order.
