The most widely used pistols, rifles, machine guns and other small arms of the twentieth century in one app.

Twentieth-century Small Arms looks in detail at the most widely used pistols, rifles, submachine guns, machine guns and other small arms of the last 100 years in one comprehensive volume. It provides a unique and readily accessible reference guide to the most important personal weapons in use throughout the world during the last century.

Twentieth-century Small Arms offers a wide survey of the development and use of small arms in the modern era of combat.

Each small arm is illustrated by a full-colour artwork and accompanied by a detailed specifications table giving the country of origin and the technical details of the weapon, including calibre, length, weight, barrel length, rate of fire, muzzle velocity, operation and, where appropriate, magazine capacity. Each entry also contains text summarising the weapon's development and service history.

    I love this app!

    It has great histories about each gun and features hundreds of handguns, shotguns, assault rifles, and mahine guns. I really like all the apps by Jourist and have their World War Two Aircraft app.
