Introducing the May Issue

Welcome to The Vintage Gun Journal, your free-to-view monthly magazine for all things British gun and rifle.

Our Youtube channel is getting some good feedback. We use it to demonstrate some of the guns we write about in action, with short films. This month readers will find links to some more; starting with a Thomas Horsley slide-lever.

With Gavin Gardiner's auction successfully concluded, May sees Bonham's back in action with a sale in London on 27th, which we preview.

We also do a little retrospective on early 20th century stalking rifles, some of which are getting hard to find ammunition to feed, unless you home-load.

Regular readers will enjoy Nick Harlow's final installment on Purdey in the current series, but fear not, he will return!
