Frank W. and George, were skilled German gunsmiths who plied their trade on the Western American frontier during the last thirty years of the nineteenth century. In addition to Old World quality gunsmithing and engraving work, the brothers also modified Sharps and other rifles with their patented 'Freunds's Improved' breechlock action, and took out U.S. patents on a number of other inventions including the famed 'More Light' rifle sight, a pocket knife-fuse cutter for miners, and a novel decorative spoon design. The Freund's story is one of triumph and failure, of intriguing people and challenging times - the story of the Pioneer Gunmakers to the West. 380pp.
