From the publisher: "This is the definitive book on rifles and shotguns, by Jack O'Connor, America's foremost authority on firearms. It is clear, concise, organized for easy reference, encyclopedic in its coverage and fully illustrated with photographs and drawings. The author traces the history of shoulder arms from the unwieldy midget cannon through the Kentucky rifle and the plains rifle, the breech-loading systems that replaced them, up to today's precision pieces. The book discusses in full detail American and foreign sporting rifles. It covers the cartridge, its evolution, primer system, parts and chambering, and how cartridges are named and numbered in the United States and abroad. It explains types and actions of big-game rifles, barrels, stocks, iron and telescope sights. Here, too, is valuable information on windage, sighting and trajectory. There is advice on the best rifles and cartridges for hunting in mountains, woods and plains, for shooting all kinds of game, including soft-skinned and hard-skinned big game."; 477 pages.
