The Meticulous drawings, notes and studies compiled by General Pitman in this 5 volume set are recorded with unparalleled thoroughness, exactly as presented in his original notebooks. His heretofore unpublished papers reveal that he began his work as early as 1868. The level of detail could only have been done by a man impassioned by the material and his research. Vol 3 contains U.S. Breech-loading rifles and carbines, cal. .45. More than 200 illustrations, including the 45/70 Solid Head-experimental national armory box label, Capt. Metcalfe's cart. Block, .45 machine gun blanks. 192pp.
