Part 4 of The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation Archive Series: The Trades of Colonial Williamsburg 

The gun was a vital part of life in 18th-century Williamsburg, and this 1965 docudrama demonstrates the expertise that went into the making of each weapon. Colonial Williamsburg's master gunsmith explains the principal parts of an early American rifle and demonstrates the gun's complex manufacturing process. 

You'll follow every step in a rifle's creation from the selection of wood, shaping and carving of the gunstock to the casting, forging, finishing, and embellishment of all metal parts. 

Extra feature: "The Colonial Printer" (1952)—While explaining the trade of printing, this docudrama relates the importance of the printer as a communicator of news, information, and learning central to the colonial capital community of Williamsburg.
