This volume, published in 1998 is the second work relating to firearms written by the Belgian author Gérard HENROTIN.  As in his first title issued in 1996 : "La Connaissance du Luger", it includes a great variety of technical pictures, drawn from the infographic technology. This ultra-modern process, used for the first time at this level in the firearms literature, allows to reach one of the most difficult goal : the close understanding of the firearms mechanical operation. All the illustrations of this site are stemming from the same graphical craft present throughout the book. Our long chapter in this site, relating to the Colt pistols will enlighten what kind of data you are supposed to find in this beautifully illustrated book. Not only you will learn how these handguns function, but you will get their complete historical background and various markings explanations. A one of its kind book, that leaves the reader with a feeling of great satisfaction. In the index below you will find some links to other pages with graphical illustrations.
