A very useful book. Absolutely indispensable to firearms owners/collectors. I liked mine so much, I bought an extra one that I gave to my favorite gunsmith. Made him very happy, also - says he uses very often.

It is ok as far as it goes. Should be called the abridged directory of proofmarks. I bought it to look up some proofmarks on a Martini-Henry, and they were not included in the book.Standard Directory of Proof Marks

I'm a novice at this, so I'm sure I don't understand all that I should regarding the organization of this book. However, as a rookie, it seems as though I'll have to hunt through the book for the correct picture in order to identify the manufacturer. I wish it could be indexed somehow for ease of information retrieval.

Anyone collecting European firearms needs this book to answer many questions about the guns they own. It will tell you the era when the gun was made and where. Was it built and proofed for Black or smokeless powder. Saves a lot of time and searches on the internet.

This is a first class starting point for the study of Proof Marks.

It is sometimes little confusing but I put that down to it being translation into English.

Having said the above It is thoroughly recommended.

limited info and very limited Geographical coverage.....no real US. coverage, no experimental or trials info....the time or era of use was good but limited....maybe I was expecting more but the price got me to try.

Bought this for my Dad who recently started collecting guns, it is a very interesting and useful guide to use to
determine the gun's heritage.
