I was able to buy a first copy back some months ago at Brandywine and has been extremely useful over these past months. In ways of cleaning, maintaining and troubleshooting basic issues and truly taking a lost art and putting it into a easy to read booklet. A good book that anyone of any skill level can take from, the armorer of a regiment to the common reenactor.
