Interest in cowboy action shooting and Old West reenactment has skyrocketed, and spawned tremendous growth in the field of replica firearms; the 'cowboy action club' is 55,000 members strong. Unfortunately, there hasn’t been much information available on these replicas - until now! Guns of the New West gives readers comprehensive information on the gun they own or are thinking about buying. No Old West enthusiast will want to go without this guide! Providing historical information on the original gun, the book discusses the pros and cons of the replica, with detailed photos of the inside of the replica and an explanation of disassembly and reassembly, as well as instructions on how to make minor repairs. More than 20 handguns, rifles and shotguns are covered, with a review of available ammunition and information on accuracy and reloading. This heavily illustrated guide is the most comprehensive book available on the subject! 264pp.
