    Info on good carbine book

    I am interested in a good book on civil war carbines that would have pictures or drawings on how they worked. I am interested in the internals of the rifles to see how they worked. If I had titles and authors I could get them at library on loan. Thanks for help

    Here's one I recently bought. It has scale drawings of the actions and the ammunition.

    John Pitman
    Breech-Loading Carbines of the United States Civil War Period (The Pitman Notes on U.S. Martial Small Arms and Ammunition, 1776-1933 , Vol 1)

    Thre are 4 volumes in the complete set, but don't know what all they cover.

    John Holland has the set and might be able to expound.

    Of course, there's always Amazon and Google.
