This week in our readings and we read about making and replacing obsolete gun parts in the FAT 100 course text, and touched on some tips and tricks for drilling and tapping in Gunsmith Kinks. Chapter six in the FAT 100 course text covered making and replacing obsolete gun parts. Chapter six in our course text covered a wide range of operations that are involved in manufacturing firearms parts. I will briefly go over my thoughts on this week’s readings in this short paper.

The vast majority of firearms I’ve owned have been manufactured within the last 20 years, so there has been no need for me to fabricate replacement parts for them due to a wealth of parts availability. Although I lack personal experience dealing with the subjects
