Written by a trained historian and experienced black powder shooter, the book covers both the historical and practical background of the firearms — from muzzleloading pistols, muskets, shotguns, and rifles to black powder cartridge rifles and revolvers. Illustrated with hundreds of colour photographs and technical drawings, the book includes descriptive entries on weapon details and loading processes.
Who is it written for?
Unlike other black powder books it has as chapters on Scandinavian military firearms such as the kammerlader — one of the first military breech-loaders — the 12 mm Remington rolling block, and the Jarmann rifle — one of the worlds first military bolt-action repeating rifles.
The book won the "Best Specialised Book/Textbook" award in Norway's largest tabloid newspaper, Dagbladet, in 2005. Click her to look inside!
It has 190 pages, hardcover/dust jacket and is illustrated with hundreds of colour photographs and technical drawings. The format is 21 x 27 cm. ISBN: 8252929400. Norwegian language only!
