Standard Catalog of Civil War Firearms

From the publisher:
The only guide you’ll need when it comes to Civil War firearms. Educating yourself on the many fakes and knowing current values will allow you to make an informed firearm purchase every time. With over 700 photographs and a rarity scale for each gun, this comprehensive guide to the thousands of weapons used by Billy Yank and Johnny Reb will be indispensable for historians and collectors.
