The Gingery Series of metal working books are pretty informative - they teach metal casting and how to make a lathe. You need to know that before you can do anything else.

All the best, I hope you succeed in what you are trying to do, there is so much scope for an accomplished gunsmith in India. Despite a very slow paced change, the generation of new age gun owners will expect professionalism, which a well educated smith can offer.

As pointed out earlier there are only a few professional smiths, so the market place is not crowded.
