In this book, you will find the history of break-open shotguns, rifles, drillings and other combination guns produced in Germany during the period of 1840-1940. German guns built before 1939 exhibit a high level of quality and finish. Collectors marvel at the subtle lines and superb craftsmanship of a Rasch or a Springer. Others find satisfaction using a beautiful Sauer shotgun made well before World War 1. Many people have had the thrill of picking up a fine old gun from Germany or Austria and are in awe of the level of engraving, fit and finish. The book is divided into three sections: Hunting, Gunmakers and The Gun Itself. These three sections capture the essence of the topics through the use of photographs and illustrations.
