Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

A detailed and beautifully illustrated book that tells the full story of Remington Firearms model by model with more than 200 clear photographs. Separate sections cover all the company's output, including Pistols and Revolvers, Rifles and Carbines, and Shotguns. The range of firearms discussed spans everything from Rider's diminutive parlor pistol, which relied on a percussion cap to propel its diminutive .17 projectile, to the might .30 caliber Browning Machine Gun of 1917 which had a firepower capability of 600 rounds per minute.
Many interesting historical pictures and company posters complete the story.
