Product Description

Review

British Gunmakers Volume Three completes Nigel Brown's fantastic trilogy, which ranks as the most complete account of the activities of gunmaking in Britain ever produced. --Shooting Times

The result of years of study, it records the archival knowledge of many long defunct gunmakers, for the first time in many cases. This is in addition to the archive records that were unavailable to the author when the previous volumes went to press. --Sporting Rifle

The glossary of technical words and expressions relating to firearms and ammunition is the best I have seen in any gun book. It provides clear explanations of the meaning of not only the basic terms but also some of the more archaic ones whose use is generally confined to those within the trade. The triology is the most complete record of the British gun trade published to date. --Classic Arms and Militaria

A compilation of the known history and existing records of a vast number of gunmaking firms, this final volume completes a set of what is undoubtedly the best reference available for those with an interest in British gunmaking... Packed full of information, this book is ideal for any gunmaking aficionado's bookshelf. --Shooting Gazette

Shooting Gazette September 2004

In terms of reference books, no sporting library would be complete without it. --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

4.0 out of 5 stars Re-View - British Gunmakers 26 Dec 2010
Format:Hardcover
If you have an interest in the history and records of British Gunmakers and their range of products, this is the definitive work. However you need the first two volumes to get the complete picture. The total price for the set of three, is not for the feint hearted, however the photographs are superb and the attention to detail by the author is outstanding. These books are not a detailed history in narrative form, but a record of gun serial numbers and dates together with address`s and other historical data such as the price when new (where known), model detail and changes etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars British Gunmakers - Nigel Brown 4 Dec 2012
By William E Lewis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
An excellent reference book for a dealer in antique and rare shotguns to identify their historical, thematic, and financial significance. Technical developments from the mid 1800's to the latter part of the 20th century is also a major feature of this book. The manufacturers serial number reference lists are extremely helpful.
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent reference book for vintage English Gun nuts 24 May 2012
By E. G. Russell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
There is no better reference work for those interested in vintage English guns and rifles. There are three volumes now and these books, pricey though they are, are extremely useful to anyone interested in older guns from the UK.
