"Percussion Pistols and Revolvers" (history, performance and practical Use) by Johnny Bates abd Mike Cumpston

What makes this book valuable is that it not only covers the history of original percussion handguns, but also covers the use of modern day replicas; modification, breakdown, shooting, cleaning, management, and tests with recommendations (including the LeMat). I've read this small volume at lest three-times and come back to it often.
