Introducing the October Issue

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

Our mission is to develop knowledge of British sporting guns and promote their continued use in the field.

October began with sad news for us all. The Godfather of the vintage gun revival, Cyril Adams died in Houston, just short of his eighty-fourth birthday. We look back on his remarkable life wih an article by Vic Venters, who spent two days interiewing Cyril, back in 2011.

For the rest of us, the wet weather and descent into winter appears well-set, though auctions have been surprisingly bouyant and gun sales strong.

We continue to thank you for your support. If you like the VGJ, please tell your friends. We are free to read and always will be. If you have something to contribute, we'd love to hear from you.
