Percussion Pistols And Revolvers: History, Performance and Practical Use, by Mike Cumpston and Johnny Bates
'I had a lot of fun reading this book, as I know one of the authors by reputation. Mike Cumpston posts on a number of firearms sites and specializes in black powder shooting, particularly of revolvers, but also including pistols and long arms. Mike is past being recognized as an expert in this field and his expertise has helped a lot of his fellow shooters overcome various problems commonly encountered by black powder shooting enthusiasts.
As an avid shooter myself, I can say that Messrs. Cumpston and Bates know their material. I have a couple of Colt percussion revolvers myself, one over 140 years old, and it still works due to a little preservation and attention like that advocated and described in this helpful book. '
