"Reading the schematic will teach you how to craft this item. The quality of a crafted item is determined by its governing perk such as Shotgun Messiah for all shotguns.
Some items are crafted with parts and scrapped to the same parts.
An example are pump shotguns that scrap to pump shotgun parts and are crafted using those parts."
