    The Golden Century

    Does anyone know where I can obtain a copy of this book written by John Knibbs? Its a history of BSA rifles I believe.

    Thanks Jeff

    Revised edition might be a little more palatable price wise

    Thanks @muzza and @Fireflite I'm looking for the definite history of BSA rifles not really concerned with air rifles yet (maybe when the 3rd trance comes in) and it's that and wooden spears!

    Are there any particular parts/sections/rifles you want?

    I actually have a copy somewhere. Paid about $350 for it landed a number of years ago - was expecting something enormous and authoritative - what turned up was very much an ordinary small to medium sized book without as much detail as you would think...

    I was to be honest quite disappointed.

    Still a great book but hard to see the $$$$
