Synopses & Reviews
THE ULTIMATE GUN IDENTIFICATION AND REFERENCE GUIDE!
Completely updated and expanded, this new edition of The Official Guide to Gunmarks identifies manufacturers' marks that appear on American and foreign pistols, rifles, and shotguns. It is the perfect reference for discerning collectors to take with them to gun shows and auctions.
[ ] COMPREHENSIVE. Virtually every gunmark you are likely to encounter is illustrated and indexed for easy reference. Modern proof and inspection marks from the late nineteenth century to the present day indicate the gun's country of origin and the specific test that was performed to qualify it. Military Acceptance Marks are listed for nations that don't require proof marks.
[ ] LOADED WITH INFORMATION. A complete reference offering new, important features: date of manufacture, curios and relics, manufacturers and importers, associations, and an essential glossary of firearm terms. A lively Q&A section investigates current firearm topics.
[ ] PROFESSIONAL ADVICE. The Official Guide to Gunmarks enables collectors to overcome the difficulties of determining makers' marks and proof marks, pointing out which marks make a firearm valuable and rare, and how to spot fakes and forgeries.
[ ] BONUS FEATURE. A special section translates the Waffenamt numerical system, used by the Germans during World War II in lieu of manufacturers' names.
