Introducing the August Issue

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

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

Here you will find articles by the best writers in the business and by working gunsmiths and professional hunters, as well and news and topical features.

We are here to share our knowledge and enthusiasm for the finest guns ever made.

August showcases controversial new research into E.M. Reilly's history and a detailled look at the changing terminology used by Purdey gunmakers over the decades.

There are also some interesting notes on old documents and labels from gun cases and topical issues related to sport hunting and the Game Fair.
