|"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.
