Review: Big Bore Six Guns

I bought this book after buying my Ruger .45  Colt and completing a lot of grunt research on the single action revolver. Probably would  have been a good book to get prior to purchasing because it offers a broad look at big  bore six-guns, both single and double action, although single action is clearly the…

For the price, this is a pretty good reference book.  There were some sections that were of questionable merit, as an example, 50+ pages  dedicated to a manufacturers index, many with no direct relationship to the topic at hand.  As an example, is a listing for a knife manufacturer really pertinent to a handgun  gunsmithing…
