about

Originally published in 1808. The author not only appreciated the advantage of the rifle in war, he also gives an exceptionally lucid account of its origins, operation and mechanics. The well illustrated contents will prove of great value to the historian, soldier and gun enthusiast. Contents Include: Of Projectiles in General Theory of Spiral Motion Qualities of the Rifle History of the Rifle Construction and Perfections of the Rifle Appendages of the Rifle Modes of Using the Rifle General Hints Loading, Aiming, Cleaning etc. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Home Farm Books are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
