Product Description

Collecting, maintaining, and shooting classic firearms.

Vintage gun expert Diggory Hadoke (writer of Vintage Guns for the Brand new Shot and The British Boxlock Gun & Rifle) has now produced a major work on the subject for which he’s best known: the hammer gun. With a captivating mixture of historical analysis, practical application, and personal reflection, he makes a robust case for the Victorian hammer gun as the finest sporting gun to be had today, just as it used to be a century ago.

The reader will discover all that may be worth knowing about the subject: how the guns were devised, crafted, and used, how they were perfected, and how they work. Brand new applications are given equal weight to historical ones, and subjects such as the selection of suitable ammunition, stripping, refurbishing, and customizing will prove invaluable to someone contemplating taking a hammer gun into the field and the use of it as they would a Brand new gun.

This is the fullest and most practical account of the development of the breech-loading center-fire hammer gun and its many variations yet written, with a guide for owners and collectors in order to prove invaluable when buying and maintaining their guns.
