Chris Austyn, well-known author of Modern Sporting Guns, examines "best" rifles built over the last 150 years. As the head of the gun department at Christie's auction house, London, he has had the chance to examine closely hundreds of classic rifles that have come up for sale in both London and New York. He begins with a discussion of the origins and history of the famous and most sought-after double rifles, and enthusiasts of the British double rifle will be pleased with the extensive coverage of these guns. Next he discusses single-barreled rifles and rifles made by continental European makers. Then he writes about the great collectors and the rifles in their collections. In addition, he examines the bolt action and other locking mechanisms as well as rifle accessories. He lists what problems to look for when buying a gun, discusses the ins and outs of auction sales, and includes a price guide that lists what classic rifles bring at auctions today. Finally, there is a collector's overview with a great deal of historical information for today's shooter. This valuable reference work is illustrated with dozens of color and black and white photographs.
