Format: Paperback
John Dougan is a premier firearms scholar. With his works on Ruger, he helped teach a generation how to think about collecting. Jim Hoobler is an accomplished firearms executive. Over several years he built the most impressive collection of Great Westerns in existence.

GWA's corporate story was compelling and its guns are important. The book here is the only resource as yet written on this topic. It's a worthy tribute to Great Western's Frontier revolver and Derringer.

If you collect, the book is a must have!

I purchased the book based upon a recommendation of a friend and the fact that I had recently purchased a Great Western firearm. You can't collect these weapons without this book! Even if you are not a collector, the book tells a most interesting story of the "Cowboy" era, 50's and 60's when we "baby boomers" were growing up, with our "Saturday Morning" cowboy heroes.

This is a good book to set you straight on these greatly underated firearms. Lots of info, lots of pictures, enough to have me looking for more of these guns. Any Colt lovers would like this, as GWA Co. filled the gap between the first and second gen. Colts....

Great Western Arms was small company that tried to fill the void of cowboy guns from 1954 to 1964. There have been only rumors of what they made, John Dougan and Jim Hoobler set the record straight with careful research. A very good job.
