Gun Information: Now in Downloadable Form
A couple weeks ago, I told you about Max Prasac’s new book, Big-Bore Revolvers. Now, revolvers tend to be simpler guns, mechanically speaking, than semi-automatics. Still, things break, parts wear down, some people want to customize, and others want to take these things apart and put them back together just for the sheer joy and challenge of it all.
That’s all fine and well, but having taken apart my share of revolvers, rifles, shotguns, etc., I’ve occasionally wound up with a leftover part and gone scrambling for a long-lost owner’s manual to consult. If I knew then what I know now.
What I know now is that GunDigestStore.com has hundreds of gun information downloads on assembly and disassembly for just about nearly any gun you can think of. Heck, in revolvers alone we stock assembly/disassembly and exploded gun drawings for dozens and dozens of Dan Wessons and those by H&R, plus almost too many Colts to count, including Colt Single Action Army six-shooters, the Peacemaker Buntline, 1860 Army, Walker and Dragoon models, and New Frontier single-actions, as well as double-actions such as Police Python and old model Troopers.
Then there are the Ruger Security Six and Blackhawk, the Model 82, 83, 85, and 88 from Taurus (among many others), Hi-Standards and Charter Arms wheelguns, and models from Freedom Arms guns, too. And then there’s Smith and Wesson—don’t even get me started on how many S&W revolvers we cover. We’ve even got them for some of those way-out-there guns, like Colt’s 1855 sidehammer revolver, the Llama Commanche II, the Remington New Model Army 44, and the Japanese Type 26, just to name a few.
So, if you loved Big-Bore Revolvers and have a thing for five-shots, six-shots, eight-shots, and more, then check out our gun information downloads. Sure beats trying to figure out where that leftover spring goes on your own!
Bonus Gun Information Pick: Gun Digest Book of the Revolver
Without a doubt, I had a great time working with Max on Big-Bore Revolvers, and it brought back fond memories of the snubby two-inch barrel S&W Model 686 I owned once (and regret selling to this day). But as fascinating as the powerhouse wheelguns are that Max devised his book about, guns that big aren’t for everyone.
Love a revolver but wanting a taste of the gamut? Then check out Grant Cunningham’s Gun Digest Book of the Revolver. From .22 target revolvers to snub-nose J-frames for self-defense and others, Grant also provides great lessons in tactics for dealing with malfunctions, advice on revolvers for self-defense, mastering the double-action trigger, reloading skills, and more.
There’s a wealth of information in the Gun Digest Book of the Revolver, and it makes a great mate to Max Prasac’s Big-Bore Revolver. Buy one, buy both and have some fun with one of the hardiest handguns the world has ever seen.
