Through the use of modern replicas, authors and shooting enthusiasts Johnny Bates and Mike Cumpston investigate the capacities and limitations of the original revolvers, providing insight about accuracy, utility, and ballistic performance.

The percussion revolver emerged in the 1830s and remained state of the art until metallic cartridge revolvers came into common use in the mid-1870s. Bates and Cumpston discuss the development of the precartridge arms, placing them in their proper historic context. They also take a look at modern replicas, including detailed information on selection, maintenance, and shooting, while delving into both the positive and negative realities that can be encountered when using these firearms.

A valuable reference for the student, fiction writer, and active shooter, Percussion Revolvers is an in-depth and comprehensive exploration of caplock handguns and their modern replicas.
