    I was given a copy of Total Airguns: The Complete Guide to Hunting with Air Rifles by Peter Wadeson and it's pretty good, well worth a read.
    What the John Darling one like?

    The Third or fourth edition of John Walters' The Airgun Book

    The Airgun from Trigger to Target by Gerald Cardew & Son


    These are essential reading! You can get them off the auction site or amazon.co.uk occasionally.

    The ancient

    Smith's Gas Air and Spring Guns of the World is a good read too, but it is from the late 1950s.

    The hunting ones I can take or leave, make a good read but I don't feel the need to keep them or re-read.

    Cardew - From Trigger To Target.
    Hiller - Collectors Guide To Air Rifles and Air Pistols
    Beeman - Blue Book Of Airguns

    All books that I try to keep to hand for quick reference. I also have a copy of Wesley - Air Guns And Air Pistols kicking around.
