Book Description Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, 1981. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. 185 pages. Shotgun buffs have long had a love affair with a certain few classic double-barrel shotguns. Admired for their fine materials and superb workmanship, these treasured firearms are not simply collectors' items; they are accessible and shootable. And because they are no longer produced, they're even more desirable today than ever before. Michael McIntosh from his own personal experience and that of other aficionados, writes for the first time in a single volume of the seven top classics. In a systematic and unified way, he relates the colorful background of the Parker, L.C. Smith, Ithaca, Lefever, A.H. Fox, Winchester Model 21, and Remington Model 32. He describes the brilliant and sometimes eccentric inventors and their ingenious solutions to design problems and writes of the struggles of the entrepreneurs who manufactured the classic doubles in good times and bad. McIntosh gives valuable advice on classic doubles: how and where to find them, how to judge market value, the pros and cons of repair and refurbishing. He also covers shooting tips, steel shot, and serial numbers. A classic in its field. There is the former owner's neat library impression at the bottom right of the front end paper. There is light soiling to the top of the page block with the book closed. Otherwise the inside is generally clean and the binding is solid. Overall the Book is Very Good. The Dust Jacket has some edge wear at the top edge, especially the top of the spine. There is age toning/soiling to the white background of the Dust Jacket and other moderate wear. Overall the Dust Jacket is about Good. Bookseller Inventory # 5739
