"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
This is the second volume in Geoffrey Boothroyd's series on the British shotgun and covers the marvelous "golden age" of British shotgun making. The author writes about the actions and their mechanisms, covering the following types: hammer, hammerless, ejectors, sidelocks, and boxlocks. Then the makers themselves are discussed. The author has kept literally thousands of pages of notes on all the well-known and obscure gunmakers over the years. From this research he has compiled a remarkable amount of information on gunmakers-ranging from James Adsett to John Wilkes. In all, over sixty makers are described and discussed, giving as much detailed information as possible. This is a book that will be enjoyed, read, and reread for years to come.
