Can any of the experts explain the differences between falling block and rolling block actions in single-shot rifles? I have been using the terms interchangeably. Are they not synonyms? Thanks in advance.
The late Frank de Haas wrote SINGLE SHOT RIFLES AND ACTIONS. It has been revised at least once. James Grant wrote, I believe, SINGLE SHOT RIFLES. Everything you want to understand is understandable in de Haas' book.
