New book by Schiffers
« on: January 06, 2014, 01:45:45 pm »
Some may be aware of "Civil War Carbines - Myth vs Reality" by Peter Schiffers, in which he test fires 12 ACW original carbines for reliability and accuracy out to 200m (220 yds).
He duplicated ammunition as accurately as possible, right down to the bullet lubes. His findings may come as a surprise to those of us with pet beliefs and preferences.

He has recently released "Civil War Revolvers - Myth vs Reality". I'm ordering a copy today from:

www.gunsandswordcollector.com    1-800-999-4697  or  401- 597-5055

NOTE: I just ordered a copy from the supplier and they have not yet received any copies to sell. It's hot off the presses. If you want a copy, get in the line up.
