    Agreed, I have it and went to some lengths to get it. His post-war books on gunsmithing are classics too.

    As for those videos, it's a little hard to tell what's going on, but it appears there was an informal test fire on the way in, then an oil/solvent bath, then stacked either for later attention or shipping out to somewhere else. With the smoking going on you have wonder what the solvent in the buckets on the table was!
