Noted underhammer researcher and scholar, Nicholas L. Chandler, has devoted untold years in research, compiling data and photos, and writing what is sure to become the new standard reference on the subject of early American underhammer arms. You may recall that the previous post below is a review about one of Mr. Chandler’s articles about the origins of the underhammer concept. His is a fascinating story to say the least, but he didn’t stop there.
His new book, EARLY AMERICAN UNDERHAMMER FIREARMS, is published by Mobray Publishing of Woonsocket, Rhode Island and features 192 pages of information and over 350 clear and detailed photos that tell the real story of the origins and development of the underhammer percussion system beginning in 1820s New England.
At only $59.99 this fine book would be a wonderful Christmas gift. However, if you want to receive it in time for this Christmas, I would suggest you contact Mobray Publishing - like Pronto.
