NRA Museums, in partnership with Gun Digest Media, has released a new edition of “The Illustrated History of Firearms.” The full-color, hardcover, 320-page work features more than 1,700 photos compiled by NRA Museums curators Jim Supica, Doug Wicklund and Philip Schreier. 

This follow-up to the best-selling original NRA Museums book is loaded with beautifully rendered images and data on old, new and currently manufactured firearms that have changed history. Covering the earliest matchlocks to modern match-grade superguns and everything between, “The Illustrated History of Firearms, Second Edition” provides a fascinating education on how the guns evolved, where they originated and how they looked and worked.

The book is ideal for coffee-table display and includes 300 more photos than the original, plus dozens of new profiles of the people who influenced firearm development. The stories of the guns they created, refined and lived and died with provide readers with a new appreciation for the role firearms have played in world history.

The hardcover with dust jacket includes some of history’s most iconic firearms. MSRP is $39.99 plus shipping and handling. Visit gundigeststore.com to order.
