This historical database of USA-Gunmakers was created using the following texts:
- ARCADI GLUCKMAN and L.D. Satterlee, American gun makers 1953
- ROBER E. GARDNER, American Arms and Arms Makers, 1988
The two texts are digitized on the Internet and I think they are now in the public domain; if I'm wrong, I invite the owner of copyright to inform me and I will delete the data from the database I note that my site has no profit and its purpose is purely cultural.
The names of gunsmiths in capital letters are from the book of Gluckmann-Satterlee.
The names of gunsmiths with normal letters are from the book of Gardner.
In case of doubt about the correctness of the transcript data, please always want to make references to the original texts.
