I bought this book as background material for a project that I was about to undertake. I wanted to do some modification work on a European double and was looking for some general information that would support my intentions. This book was one of four that I bought before starting the project. Two others that I found interesting are Gun Craft: Fine Guns and Gunmakers in the 21st Century which I consider one of the finest gun books EVER on traditional gun studies (particularly European..), and Shooting the British Double Rifle: A Modern Guide for Load Development and Use, 3rd Edition which is of tremendous value to those who need load information for traditional British cartridges.After ordering this book 'DOUBLE GUNS and CUSTOM GUNSMITHING', I was not certain what to expect. When the book arrived I looked it over casually and was about to return it because I thought it was just another "do it this way" book...which I had no intention of doing!! Then I sat down with it and started reading a little and discovered that the author (Steven Dodd Hughes..) had done some homework before publishing this effort. This encouraged me to keep reading and I am glad that I did.You should note that this book is about double guns (ONLY double guns..) and about general gunsmithing techniques that are used on double guns (ONLY double guns!!!..).
