From the publisher:
Until recently, owning a scout/utility rifle was basically a high-cost proposition. Even when commercial versions surfaced, they carried a hefty price tag. Now, hobbyist and scout enthusiast Bob Cashner offers viable options for the do-it-yourselfer. Using common tools and easy-to-come-by parts, Cashner has fashioned his own home-built scouts from a variety of tried-and-true, battle-tested military actions, from the 98 Mauser and Mosin-Nagant to the venerable Springfield. A nonpurist at heart, he has also built semiauto versions based on the M1 Garand, M1 carbine, Ruger Mini-14 and SKS. Each of his creations cost him less than a quarter of what the commercial models would have. Here he provides step-by-step directions for building his favorite scouts, including guidelines for key modifications such as a forward-mounted intermediate-eye-relief scope, backup iron sights, a synthetic stock (if the budget allows) and more, followed by instructions for disassembly and a breakdown of costs. He also includes instructions for building a .22 LR practice scout, discussions about the various loads suited to the scout rifle and an overview of that all-important accessory, the shooting sling. 8 1/2 x 11, softcover, photos, illus., 128 pp. ISBN 1-58160-393-2
