Review

"This work is well on its way to becoming the standard reference guide to black powder replica revolvers." --Phil Spangenberger, Field Editor, Guns & Ammo, True West magazine

There are a great variety of black powder revolvers on the market today and it was great to find a quality book covering all of them. This in-depth study has eight chapters covering Colts, contemporaries, reproductions, and limited editions. What I enjoyed most were the vivid color photographs. Dennis always sprinkles them with period accessories, action photos, and nice gun leather. Chapter five is very helpful and covers shooting and maintaining these pistols. I personally recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Old West guns whether you own one or not. You get more than your money s worth with this book. --Alan Soellner - Chisholm s Trail Old West Leather

Just a great all around book. Super pictures and information on black powder clones that most people never knew existed. Now if you could just find half of them for sale somewhere.

Well put together and as I stated it's something you would want to leave out for company to see. Photography and design are outstanding. I purchased this book and Dennis's other book Metalic Cartridge Conversions together. Both are great, alot of the infomation in Metalic Cartridge Conversions is covered in this book. If I could choose between the two I would have bought this one.
Great Book!

Contained more information than hoped for. A little light on items other than colts. All and all an excellent book, with very nice photos.

The info in this book fills some of the holes in the research I have attempted on black powder repros. Well worth the price, and the pictures are incredible.
