Part Number: BOOK-ARS
Availability: In Stock
Price: $89.00
A need for a comprehensive reference for the sights found on collectible firearms has been needed for some time. No previous publication has detailed coverage of the sights found on rifles such as Sharps, Remington, Ballards, Maynards, Winchesters and other rifles of the late mid to late 1800's. This book covers the products made by the companies that made the rifles as listed above, as well as sight manufacturers such as Lyman, King, and Marbles. Also covered are sights made by experimenters and tinkerers who had some production, often with just a sight or two in their product line. A chapter is devoted to some of the early telescopic sight manufacturers such as Mogg, Malcolm, Sidle, Stevens, and several that are so obscure that most collectors have never heard of them. Sight adjusters, which are occasionally found comprise another chapter. To finish the book the last chapter is devoted to some of the sight patents. The book's coverage is primarily the earlier sights of 1850-1920 or so, but a few more modern sights are covered. A must have for the antique rifle collector.
