I am looking for a book on 19th/early 20th. Century service revolvers for the libaray, not a coffee table book but a suggestion for a good reference volume.....Thanks
Tell you what, why don't you as you are in the position of acquiring and owning unlimited numbers of firearms? I will then be able to buy an autographed copy from you.........................
You have piqued my interest. Just what type of information are you looking for, and which service revolvers? American, British, European? What time period, cartridge or cap-and-ball?
As to American service revolvers, they are the same, except for finish, as revolvers sold commercially. Anything said for most Colt or S&W guns would apply to their military counterparts. And, most shooters of any age will have experience with the British Webleys and Enfields sold in such numbers prior to GCA '68. Certainly doesn't seem to be an insurmountable task.
