Handguns is a comprehensive visual directory of over 350 guns. Divided into five chapters, with each covering a category of pistol or revolver, the book begins with an introduction to the history of handguns and then examines the different types of firearm in chronological order.

Each selected weapon features an authoritative description of the gun and its history, accompanied by a list of key technical data. ‘Classic’ handguns – including models by Smith & Wesson, Walther, Luger and Beretta – are allocated a double- page spread and illustrated by a near actual-size photograph, specially taken by the Royal Armouries.

Compiled by a world-renowned arms expert and illustrated with rich, colour images, this is an essential book for anyone fascinated by weaponry.
