4)  Where can I get one of those?

We'll go into a little more detail on each of these questions below:

Often, the collector or enthusiast will find themselves the owner of an interesting but puzzling firearm.  Some questions that come to quickly to mind are:  What is this gun?  How old is it?  Where was it made?  Who was it used by?  What other variants are there?  What is the proper ammunition for it?  We at serve the shooting and collecting public by providing custom detailed, illustrated, and bound reports on individual firearms that answer these questions and many more.

Even collectors who are well versed in the history of their firearms may be daunted by issues of mechanical operation!  Uses and methods that were commonplace in the beginning and middle of the 20th century may have long since been forgotten here at the dawn of the 21st!   We at serve the shooting and collecting public by providing custom detailed and illustrated guides to the operation, use, disassembly and reassembly of YOUR firearm.  Videos are available upon request.
