PO Ackley America's Gunsmith

Registered Users do not see the above ad.

Anyone reading Fred Zeglin’s new book: PO Ackley America’s Gunsmith?
I finished a quick read on it yesterday and have started back to give it a good slow read.
This book has straight forward writing, a clear text and good pictures. I you like PO, Wildcats, Custom Firearms, or Gunsmiths in general I can recommend this book.
Chapter 12:”The Writer” is my favorite chapter so far. Fred Zeglin puts a good perspective on PO’s writing – his purpose and style. PO wrote for the Day not for posterity.
Most of the important aspects of PO’s life, wildcats and business are well covered. There will always be another question to ask…
At $50.00 the book is competitively priced in today’s book market At .20˘ a page it is a good value.
