Want to upgrade the trigger on your polymer pistol? No problem. We’ll show you how. How about making your standard pistol shoot 1″ groups? A semi-drop-in barrel job will do the job. Here’s the best part: You won’t even need a pile of expensive tools. On the other hand, if you’re looking for an excuse to add to your tool collection, you’ll find some recommendations.
If you’re already an intermediate or advanced home gunsmith, never fear. We’ve got plenty of valuable tips and tricks in this issue for you too.
If you’re feeling adventurous, consider making your own 1911 — from scratch! You’ll be surprised at what you can accomplish with kits and hand tools.
You might have a wall hanger or beater gun that’s seen better days or doesn’t work at all. Whether yours are revolvers, surplus rifles or shotguns, you’ll find stories to help bring old guns back into range or field condition.
You’re about to gain valuable pro tips on woodworking, metal working, parts fabrication, lathe and mill techniques, and even a bit of welding.
