Description
This greatly expanded edition has been completely reorganized to make it less complicated to use. In addition to full coverage of all centerfire military and commercial rifles produced from the perfection of the metal-case cartridge to the present time as provided in the first edition, author John Walter has gone back in time to include the Civil War guns, and back even further to include the Dreyse breechloaders and others. He has also included a vast array of.22 rimfire rifles.

The book is now organized on an "A-Z" country-by-country basis. Each national entry is divided by maker, then (when necessary) by action class, and then chronologically. Every design is introduced by an overview of the system, assessing its strengths and weaknesses, followed by a brief history, of each rifle in a unique year-by-year method.

Completely indexed with extensive cross-referencing, this is the widest-ranging and most comprehensive survey ever produced and an invaluable resource for anyone interested in the rifle.
