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 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.

October sees the start of the pheasant season here in England and shooters are again under attack in the media and Parliament. The latest challenge is a mooted ban on trophy imports, while the spectre of a lead shot ban stirs once again.

We take a look at the phenomenon of 'magnum small bores' that was a trend in the 1930s and try to regulate a .375 flanged H&H double rifle.
