From the publisher's foreword: "This first edition of the Muzzleloaders' Handbook marks not only Lyman's entry into the periodical publishing area but also highlights the expansion of the Lyman publishing effort. This, our first annual, follows the Black Powder Handbook published in 1975. Response to that book a blend of editorial and technical material, was so good that we immediately finalized plans for The Muzzleloaders' Handbook, First Edition."

Nonte), The perdussion revolver-tool, toy, or treasure? (Skeeter Skelton), Samuel E. Tobias, Gunsmith (Walter J. Keenan), etc.; 248 pages.

Pictorial wrap-around cover depicting a revolutionary scene of men gathered at the Red Lion working with long rifles. This first edition of the Muzzleloaders' Handbook gives broad coverage to the sport of the black powder shooter. No other area of shooting sports has so many peripheral interest as does muzzleloading. Not only do shooters use their guns for hunting and contest but often assemble the guns, leather accoutrements and other gear themselves. In addition to gathering a basic ballistic education relating directly to the founding of America, a black powder shooter can find himself exposed to closely related skills such as woodcarving, engraving, metal working, scrimshaw, leather tooling, sewing, jewelry-making, camping and more. Many of these subjects are covered in this first book.
