    In this book you will find the history of break-open shotguns, rifles, drillings and other combination guns produced in Germany during the period of 1840–1940.
     
    German guns built before 1939 exhibit a high level of quality and finish. Collectors marvel at the subtle lines and superb craftsmanship of a Rasch or a Springer. Others find satisfaction using a beautiful Sauer shotgun made well before World War 1. Many people have had the thrill of picking up a fine old gun from Germany or Austria and are in awe of the level of engraving, fit and finish. Hunters delight in carrying a drilling in the field, for they know that they can take any game that presents itself.
