Table of Contents

This bi-centennial year has also seen the introduction of a new service rifle, the F88, which features an innovative concept in design and production. The process of evolution from the flintlock smoothbore musket to automatic smallbore assault rifle is ,tabulated in this study, along with details of Australia's own production at the Small Arms Factory, Lithgow.

For quick reference, casual browsing or detailed study, this format is ideal, and separate sections on the Colonial and post-Federation markings, a comprehensive glossary and the applicable bayonets make this a worthy successor to "Australian Service Longarms" and the original accompanying "Australian Service Bayonets".

This handbook is invaluable to the collector, historian, museum curator and military enthusiast.
