Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Using a wealth of contemporary accounts, this book puts into context how the specific demands created by the struggle for survival in such a hostile environment helped create the often unique types of firearm that were to become synonymous with the West. The muskets, rifles, shotguns and pistols that saw use in the West from the 1700s through to the turn of the twentieth century, and the extraordinarily rapid growth of technology in the US firearms manufacturing industry, are all examined.”
