Periodical Articles

After 35 years of collecting and studying antique guns and all things related to them, I received an invitation in 1999 from my friend Dietrich Apel to write an article about My favorite German Gun for the magazine-Der Waffenschmied. This sparked the pleasurable avocation of writing articles sharing what I have learned and guns I have handled with a broader audience than my circle of friends. Below is a bibliography of those articles for those that might be interested with information pertaining to acquisition of back issues containing those articles.
