Collecting Handguns, revolvers, pistols
This book is the Rosetta Stone for gun collectors!
The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Handguns is a fantastic reference for the avid gun and
militaria collector. It is a vast compendium of sketches and illustrations of
thousands of handguns from around the world and across time. It is organized
by country of manufacture and includes a brief treatise on the companies referenced. The
great value of this book lies in its use as tool to determine the origin of obscure,
cryptically marked handguns and rare variations of better known models.
Truly complete in scope and depth of detailed
information. This is a thorough introduction to the world of personal military
firearms. In it, the authors describe each and every pistol, revolver, rifle,
machine gun, and sub-machine gun produced for military use by every country in the world
during this century. The text is sprinkled with historical notes, giving
readers a sense of each weapon's place in history. Descriptions are fairly
detailed, including calibers, rates of fire, muzzle velocities, and a concise explanation
of each weapon's firing action. This book is the best place to begin learning
seriously about military small arms, their uses, and their historical significance.
