Stylized eagles have been stamped on government owned or manufactured firearms in the United States since the beginning of our country. It seems that little or no attempt was made to standardize the design of the eagle, hence many different birds appear on the muskets, rifles, and pistols made by government arsenals or private contractors. This book lists and illustrates the various eagles in an informative manner. Most of the national armory examples are represented, as well as early contract arms, particularly limited production. Soft cover, 8-1/2 x 11", 140 pages, over 200 illustrations.
