Westley Richards was the leader in British breech-loading single shot development. Their early designs predated both the paper cartridge and coil case forms of the 1850-1860 period. Volume 4 describes in great detail Westley Richard's designs during the early breech-loading period. Much attention is given to the text and hundreds of photos and drawings of rifles, sights, reloading tools, and cartridges for all models.

265 pages, black and white photographs and illustrations.
