This long awaited book examines the many styles of sniper rifles and
optics used by the Canadian Army. Starting with the Ross rifle of
Great War fame, mated to the Warner & Swayze telescopic sight,
the book examines issues and usage of a variety of sniper rifles.
World War II saw a medley of equipment used in the early days.

their experimental rifles as well as information on Research
Enterprises Limited and the experimental scopes they developed for
the Long Branch rifles. Post-war rifles used by the Canadian Army
