There are a couple of books that I've seen that explain exactly what you're interested in. One is The Encyclopedia of American Gun Design and Performance by L.R. Wallack and the other is Guns and How They Work by Ian V. Hogg. I found them online, if you want I will provide you with a link to download them. Good luck.

Highly recommend going to Amazon and getting "The Modern Gunsmith" by James Howe and "Gunsmithing" by Dunlap. Howe is out of print, but is easy to find. Both are excellent books for teaching basics. Also, I recommend going to Midway USA and getting "Building Your Gunsmithing Library". Every smithing book ever published in this country is cataloged there, with a copy of their table of contents and information on which books are best at what areas. Hope I could help.

Remember that crazy and guns don't mix.
