Two hundred and twenty local firearms are covered in this new reference guide. The full story of these firearms and of the people who designed them has never before been told. This new firearms reference guide is the result of eight years of hard work tracing and interviewing key people, scanning original documents and taking original photographs.

This book comprehensively covers the technical data on Southern African hunting rifles, sporting arms, handguns and military firearms as well as telling the story of the companies which manufactured them, the designers who created them and the people who made them.

For those who have an interest in the Rhodesian War, there is a detailed chapter on the firearm industry in that country during the late 1970's as well as information on Rhodesian firearms in other chapters.

This quality, information packed, full-colour, photo rich, hardback A4 book runs to over 500 pages.

Compiled by the Pretoria Arms Ammunition Association / Pretoria Wapen En Ammunisievereniging and edited by Chas Lotter.

Firearms Southern Africa

I found the book to be well researched and very informative. I was mainly interested in the Rhodesian section but the other sections especially the development and uses of the R1 and its later versions a good read. There was some hiccups over postage but that is to be expected considering the distances involved. Any queries that I had were sorted immediately. I have bought from Bush War Books before and the service has been excellent. The book was well packaged and arrived in perfect condition. I would recommend them to all those who are looking for those less mainstream books to do with Southern Africa.
