From Musket to Metallic Cartridge is an historical introduction to the use of black powder firearms, from the primitive smooth-bore musket to breech-loading cartridge guns, as well as a primer on their practical use for today's black powder shooters.
Vakre våpen – svart krutt by Øyvind Flatnes was published in 2005. Now out of print it covered the same subjects as his latest book in English From Musket to Metallic Cartridge: A Practical History of Black Powder Firearms (2013).
