Handgun Trade Brands, U.S. Mfrs & Dist. 1865-1930

33 pages, about 11" x 8", glossy soft-cover in full color. New typeset original. Printed on high quality 20# 97 bright acid free paper. Not Illustrated.

A treasury of handgun makers and what they called their guns. We have two lists in the book. One is sorted by gun name and the other by manufacturer and the names they used. So, if you have a Red Jacket Number 3 spur trigger revolver, you will know it was made by the Lee Arms Company.
