The British Shogun series is a tribute to the ingenuity and craftsmanship of the British gun trade. This volume contains information on many unrecorded designs and artifacts, including the single trigger, the over and under gun, and the single barrel or the classic side-by-side gun. This is the most sought after volume of the three volume set because it provides the complete story of the British shotgun since 1891, the period that most interests shooters of British guns. Thus, it covers the heyday of the British gun industry from the Edwardian Period, through both World Wars, the period between them, and the post WW-II period. The book finally brings us up to date (2011) with the most modern of British designs.
