The Proof House Library and Research Facilities

The Proof House Library contains a medium-sized collection of books, periodicals and original manuscripts spanning two hundred years to the present day, all of which relate to the Gun Trade or to weapons, ammunition and shooting. It is therefore an ideal reference source for information for genuine firearms researchers and extracts from these items are available on request. Although access to the Library is restricted, permission can be sought from the Proof Master to visit the building but books cannot be loaned. A small charge is required for this service.
