From Musket to Metallic Cartridge


Øyvind Flatnes

This beautifully illustrated reference work covers all aspects of early and late gun development. It covers smoothbore muskets and pistols from as early as the 15th century right through to modern cartridge guns of the 1800s.

Any shooter who is interested in the development of firearms will find this book a constant source of information which they will refer to time and time again.

The descriptions and explanations by the author are clearly written and full of detail and historical fact. The colour plates and drawings of each gun, or parts, are clear and impeccably detailed. This is definitely a book for any shooter’s reference library.
