5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Reference January 10, 2001
Format:Paperback
This book makes for excellent reference material for those thinking of investing in a great rifle or simply enthusiastic about the art of rifles today.Exhaustive gun list covering most commercial rifles of today and yesterday without wasting too many pages on worthless ballistic charts.Highly recommended reference for hunters,competitive shooters,collectors or simply gun enthusiasts.

5.0 out of 5 stars great reference March 21, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Have used it to confirm features on a number of old rifles. Only a couple of small gaps in certain areas, like the Whitney lever actions, but totally informative on old military weapons

3.0 out of 5 stars Rifles of the World September 23, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Wealth of information, but usually when I refer to it I cannot find the rifle I am looking for. Possibly with practice its organization will become more familiar.
