In Vol. 6 the author covers the Webley company, it's history and the companies that were combined to make the firm. Also covered in detail are the rifles produced: the Scott-Field, Webley-Wyley, model of 1897 and the famous Model of 1902. Webley was, during the late 1800s and early 1900s the largest British manufacturer of sporting arms. This is not widely known because Webley was a wholesale maker and most of their production carries a retailers name. This story and various models, of single shot rifles that Webley produced will be studied in detail. The remaining sections of this volume will cover a little known rifle, the Ingram-Coster of 1897 of which only one is known. The history of the two major makers of British ammunition, Eley and Kynoch as well as their activities and developments from black powder days through Cordite and it's problems and the development of Nitro for black loads, compromise the balance of the book. Also included is a large section devoted to additional information and corrections of material covered in previous books in this series. 8 1/2 X 11, hardcover, photos, illus, 311pp.
