First edition selling fast get yours while still avalible. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>.. Shotgun New Wrote on 1-3-2011 edition: US World War 2 arms are extraordinarily well-documented, and you might be inclined to think the topic of M1 Carbines might have been exhausted by books from Jerry Kuhnhausen, Joe Poyer and Larry Ruth. This volume takes a new and novel approach by subordinating the text to more than 4.000 color photographs and plenty of detailed tables. If you wanted to know how to tell an S.G. buttplate from a Standard Products buttplate, this book will tell you. The many accessories made for the Carbine are well-illustrated, as are its variants, and the scetions are separated by a selection of photos of the Carbine in action. <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<,

 TITLE:  U. S. M1 CARBINES Wartime Production
 AUTHOR:  CRAIG RIESCH
This book is "For Collectors Only". It is the revised 5th edition and has even more mistakes than the 4 early books. The 5th Edition was a big mistake as the 4th Edition had less errors, the actual photographs of the various parts being described are not the best like the underwood stock with partial amounts worn off like the periods behind some letters confusing newbys. It also expanded on half truths confusing readers. This book begins with many mistakes. Page 30 has omitted the PB marking on NPM flip sights. Page 44 tells that barrels are 16inches long instead of the correct 18inch. Page 45 tells of mid 44 skirts were shorten; this was done 12-43. Page 74 will tell you that NPM type 1 trigger house's didn't have the early angle cut at the front of the house and they do! Note they were coded N6 & n7. Page 76 shows that they did make type 1 trigger house's-so which page is telling the truth? Page 118 and 119 tell a whopper! It tells that UEF didn't have periods and that G.H.D. did. This has confused many people. Too bad they didn't get a stock with a good cartouche instead of a worn off one. The picture on 122 looks like a double stamp and should have G.H.D. over U.E.F. Page 52 Winchester front sights were ground behind the blade, This is a half truth as half were done this way and the half were shaped like an unmarked Inland. I hope this will stop some of the many phone calls Iím getting from confusion from the 5th edition. When it was the 3rd edition it made sense. We didn't bother looking at the 6th edition as we saw no point in it. .

 TITLE: Hatcher's book of the GARAND/Hardcover
 AUTHOR:  Major General Julian S. Hatcher
Hatcherís Book of the Garand is the definitive chronicle of the rifle General George S. Patton called ďthe greatest battle implement ever devised.Ē Major General Julian S. Hatcher follows the evolution of the M1 Garand from the first semiautomatic hunting rifles to the devastating U.S. infantry weapon of WWII. Itís a battle royal of weapons design, with dozens of unforeseen problems sending inventors back to the drawing board and a scandal-hungry media waiting to discredit the guns favored by the military. Garandís fierce competition includes such legendary companies and inventors as Winchester, Colt, Johnson, Thompson, and the author himself. Hatcher follows the rigorous target and field tests that each gun underwent, leading to numerous revisions and the eventual adoption of Garandís rugged rifle. It is a difficult struggle lasting over a decade and a half, and a vital and unsung part of the war effort. In addition to the story of the Garand, Hatcher offers detailed explanations for cleaning, repairing, and firing this historic rifle. The Book of the Garand is an indispensable part of any gun enthusiastís library.
