By Dale Olson. Paperback book with 200 pages. Andrew Burgess was one of the 19th century's most prolific arms innovators and inventors, holding nearly 600 firearms patents, yet he has been practically overlooked by most writers and historians until now. Dale Olson has put together a book that combines technical and historical information, weaving together the design of the 1878 Burgess Long Range Repeating Rifle along with its manufacture at the Whitneyville Armory. He ties it all together with the stories of "Bear" Davis, a well-known early Wyoming pioneer, and his use of this gun, as well as Chief Joseph's rifle and Israel Hutchins rifle and the strange wolf-like animal he shot in 1886 with his Burgess rifle. The stories that have been gathered over years of collecting and research makes for a fun and entertaining read. An invaluable book for collectors of 19th century firearms and those who love the Old West. Now out of print, get your copy before they're no longer available...
