'This newly compiled and modernised book comprises a collection of modern sporting firearms available to the British centrefire rifleman, from the diminutive .17 Hornet right through to the big game calibres. It covers rifles for almost all live quarry hunting scenarios, but particularly deer stalking and fox shooting. Furthermore, this book offers a valuable impartial view on the application of each rifle in the field from a notable expert. From the traditional to the very recent, every type of hunting rifle and major manufacturer is covered, with historical information, technical specifications and opinions from some of the UK's most respected rifle reviewers. These include Byron Pace, Tim Pilbeam, and Mike Powell – a trio of sporting scribes who really know their way around a rifle. They actually use them regularly in the field rather than just on the range, and are recognised for their honest, forthright analysis.
'This book has been arranged, compiled and co-authored by Peter Carr, probably the most productive editor in fieldsports publishing. Peter is known worldwide as a big game hunter and conservationist turned sporting writer. His experience as a gamekeeper, stalker, safari hunter and sporting outfitter more than qualifies him to compile this book. He has hunted a great variety of game on four continents, with an array of different rifles, cramming four lifetimes into his 45 years.
Sporting Rifles is a comprehensive, knowledgeable book, and is as close to the definitive guide to modern hunting rifles as you're ever going to get. It deserves its place on every hunting rifleman's bookshelf.' Major Stewart Hamilton RM
