Mauser Military Rifles
This volume offers an insight into the iconic Mauser family of German bolt-action rifles. Drawing on first-hand accounts of the weapons in combat and primary sources regarding their mechanical performance, this fully illustrated study charts the Mauser's origins, combat record and lasting influence. It explores the full range of Mauser rifles, beginning with the hugely successful Gew 98, which entered service in the time of the Kaiser, provided the basis for the US Springfield M1903 and equipped combatants such as the South African Boers. It also investigates the Kar 98k, which was still in front-line use with Wehrmacht troops in 1945, saw use with Mexican and Yugoslavian forces, and even played a role in the 1990s Balkan conflicts in the hands of snipers. Featuring expert analysis, specially commissioned artwork and gripping first-hand accounts, this volume is ideal for anyone seeking an understanding of these sturdy and accurate rifles' unique place in the history of small-unit tactics in the 20th century.
Mechanical Variations of Mauser Bolt Action Military Rifles
Collecting these great historical battle rifles is great fun, but the serious novice will soon become confused, and then irritated. The Author, a veteran Mechanical Engineer, knows this, because it happened to him too. He actually wrote this book for his own use, from notes he made to avoid being cheated out of hard-earned gun-collecting investment funds, and now he shares it with you. Its Mauser Model identification procedure guides the new collector in sorting out a specific rifle identity from the world's hundreds of known physical variants, using standard photographic references commercially available to everyone. It is chock full of brand-new close-up photos, mechanical details, info on chamber crests, markings, and the historical time line of the many global manufacturers of this immortal rifle. It is written in a crusty, personal and often irreverent style (but only where irreverence is well past due!)

The Gun Digest Book of Modern Gun Values
Modern Gun Values is a uniquely valuable guide to the world of modern firearms. ("Modern" firearms refers to those built from c. 1899 to present. Guns made before 1899 are considered antiques. The 1899 date roughly represents the end of the blackpowder era and the beginning of the smokeless powder era.) As prices of antique firearms have risen, putting them out of the reach of most collectors, attention has turned to more affordable guns of the 20th century, especially guns of the Baby Boom (c. 1945-1980). Unlike antiques, these guns are acquired for shooting rather than for putting behind gla.
