Brand new, still in their shipping boxes and cellophane wrapping, vols 7 & 8 of British Single Shot Rifles by Wal Winfer and Tom Rowe.
A superb two volume study of the British Rook, Rabbit & Miniature rifles. These rifles were the most common of all British rifles but have been little known until now. They were made in all grades from the cheapest models made on the continent to true gems of the gun maker's art.
Volume 1 features early percussion, air and needle rifles and why they are important to the rifle trade.
Volume 2 covers the later types including the hammerless models, double rifles in rook calibers and Martinis. Also included are the ammunition and loading tools used in these rifles as well as reloading and shooting the Rook rifle today.
8.5 inches x 11 inches. Profusely illustrated with numerous high quality colour photographs and drawings.
Price £60 each (collected from South Beds). Can be posted for £10 extra (each). Buy both for £110 (£120 posted).
