Breech Loading Firearms and Ammunition on CD

A breech-loading weapon is a firearm (a rifle, a gun, etc.) in which the cartridge or shell is inserted or loaded into a chamber integral to the rear portion of a barrel.

Modern mass production firearms are breech-loading (though mortars are generally muzzle-loaded). Early firearms were almost entirely muzzle-loading. The main advantage of breech-loading is a reduction in reloading time - it is much quicker to load the projectile and charge into the breech than to force them down a long tube, especially when the tube has spiral ridges from rifling. In field artillery, breech loading allows the crew to reload the weapon without exposing themselves to enemy fire or repositioning the piece.

Contained on this disk is a rare little book from 1879 from the Sharp Rifle Company, covering the history, use and care of the Breech Loader. Also included is a book from 1893, with over 300 additional pages of rifle design history and use.

Lobrary Includes Both these volumes:

:: Breech Loading Firearms and Ammunition {1879} 94 pages.

:: The Breech Loader {1893} 316 pages.
