CITORI FACTS I read with interest Bob Hunnicutt’s review of the new Browning Citori in the August issue. The Citori is indeed a remarkable shotgun that hasn’t changed significantly since its introduction almost a half century ago. The article gave a good description of the particular gun that was being evaluated, not much left out. However, there were some inaccuracies in the discussion of the Citori and Browning’s Miroku connection. The first Citori did not appear in 1978, as stated in the opening paragraph; It was in ’73. This was sometimes referred to as the pre-Type 1, while others call it the Type 1. The second version was introduced in 1976, and it was a redesign of the first Citori. Since then, there have been changes culminating in the latest 725…

MOST AMERICANS are unfamiliar with Brno firearms, which have been made in what is now the Czech Republic since 1918. Before 1918, the Brno plant was an arsenal in city of Brno within the Austro-Hungarian Empire. In keeping with the Treaty of Versailles, the arsenal was dissolved in 1918 at the close of World War I, however, the plant was converted to an arms factory known as Ceskoslovenská zbrojovka to manufacture Mannlicher and Mauser rifles in the newly-formed Czechoslovakia. With the Treaty of Versailles, Germany and brands such as Mauser were prohibited from making military arms. In 1920, Brno purchased tooling and surplus firearms from Mauser-Oberndorf and began building and rebuilding Mauser 98 rifles. Soon after, Brno also acquired tooling and know-how to produce Mannlicher rifles from Steyr Arms in Austria and…

“I’ve always had a soft spot for Whitney Wolverines . With their sleek look and aluminum frames, they were quite futuristic for their day.” U.S.1836 PISTOL CONVERSION Q: Could you please help me on this newly acquired pistol? The rotating ramrod functions correctly, although it isn’t perfectly straight. The hammer works in all three-positions and all internal springs seem to operate perfectly. The trigger also seems to work just as it should. Allin-all, the firearm seems to function perfectly (I have not fired it) and is in amazing shape (I think) for its age. Could you give me any information and the value on this firearm? J.G Email A: You have a percussion conversion of the U.S. Model 1836 Pistol. Originally a flintlock, your photos indicate this particular specimen was manufactured by A.H. Waters…

Conquest of Empire Defense of the Realm: The British Soldier’s Rifle from 1800 to 2014 by John Hutchins, 1st edition, May 30, 2014. Publisher: Tommy Atkins Media Limited. A hardcover copy can be purchased on Amazon.com for 60 euros, plus 10 euros postage. Chock full of excellently detailed color photography and authoritative text, this book more than fulfills the promise of its title. It is a superb chronicle of the development of the British rifle from the flintlock Baker to the self-loading SA 80. Recounting not only history and pertinent details about the arms, the author interweaves social history and hands-on information about operation, shooting and effectiveness of a large cross section of British rifles — muzzle-loading, breech-loading, percussion, cartridge, bolt-action, automatic (well, you get my drift) — just about every…
