More Information
In the late nineteenth & early twentieth centuries the rook & rabbit rifle was one of the mainstays of British gun making, & were produced by every gun maker of note, although very little has been written about them.

This fascinating book traces the history of rook rifles from their beginnings in the late 1860s to the period between the 1880s & 1910 when they were in their heyday. It also considers their decline in the period between 1910 & 1930s where they were displaced by cheap but efficient .22 rim fire rifles.

It illustrates the full range of rook rifles from those that were basic & functional to those that were supreme examples of the gun maker?s art. Wherever possible the author seeks to establish who actually made the rifles. Well illustrated with over 290 photographs, some in full color, this is essential reading for gun collectors, gun makers & those interested in firearms & their history.
