Review:

'Those with even a passing interest in fine shotguns and sporting rifles will need to find a space for this book on their shelves.' --Shooting Gazette

Unless you are fortunate to have watched your collection of modern and expensive shotguns being handcrafted, Vic Venters' new book is the closest you will get to the pinnacle of gunmaking today. Featuring technical and historical details about leading gunmakers' products, what really makes this book stand out is the behind-the-scenes stories of the stockers, actioners, barrelmakers and engravers who dedicate their skills to the world's best guns. Thoughtful, intelligent and beautifully written, this is a fascinating and impressive work.' Shooting Times

Venters deserves praise for his writing style, not just his knowledge of fine guns and their makers. Perhaps he makes his subject so widely accessible because he doesn't see himself first and foremost as a gun expert. ;I consider myself a journalist with a passion. His prose ranks with short story writers and novelists.' Virginia Sportsman

'This work combines sufficient technical information to titillate the nuttiest of gun nuts while simultaneously providing enough general interest read material to please folks, like this columnist whose interest focuses more on history, the human side of guns and gunmaking, and field performance.' Sporting Classics

'As I said in the last issue of Gunmaker in my review of Vic Venters' Best of British, anyone with an interest in British gunmaking will enjoy this book as well... I think you will find the money well invested.' --Gunmaker

'An immensely readable book, full of the interesting and unexpected as well as being a mine of technical information. It is as much about the people as the guns, giving fascinating insights into a world where superb craftsmanship still reigns supreme and, coupled with new technology, is producing some of the finest guns ever made.'-- BASC Shooting and Conservation

'Gun Craft (subtitled Fine Guns & Gunmakers in the 21st Century) is a look at a unique period of time in gunmaking which has seen traditional skills supplemented by new technology.' -- --Fieldsports
