    OK; you asked for it. Give me a day or two...
    This might be worth making into yet another sticky with somebody charged with editing and submission standards (by which I mean standard form of entry). Thus speaketh a former librarian...

    A separate listing of websites might also be useful...

    This is the book I wrote about "Small Arms usde during the War of Resistance" in China between 1937 and 1945 in China. It is not entirely dedicated to Mauser but as you know, China used a lot of Mauser so it covers 1907, FN, VZ, ZZS, etc. Focus on Chinese produced pieces and arsenal history.
    Chap1: War Time Ordnance Industry
    Chap2: Pistol
    Chap3: Rifle
    Chap4: Light Machine Gun
    Chap5: Heavy Machine Gun
    Chap6: Other Weapons
    Chap7: Overview of Japanese Weapon
    Appendix 1: Reference
    Appendix 2: Idioms
    Appendix 3: Arsenal Names & Locations
    Appendix 4: Arms List of 1934
    Appendix 5: Chinese Arms by Japanese Intelligence
    Appendix 6: Chinese Ordnance Marking Conventions
    217 pages in total, over 500 color, B/W photos & charts, including
    quite a bit of historical photos that were never published before.

    I understand your concern but a book of this quality on a subject like this doesn't come along very often. We appreciate that you made us aware of it. You might want to run an add on the Trader so more people will become aware of it.

    Guns of the World -The Complete Collector's and Trader's Guide (1972). Edited by Hans Tanner, Petersen Publishing. Out of print, but you can find it. Not strictly Mausers, but enough for it to be one of my favorite references about them.

    Kriegsmodell by Michael Steves and Bruce Karem

    Set a new standard on K98k books, nothing even close, and I don't know how it could be improved, except for Vols. 1 and 2 (early war and midwar, respectively), which will be coming out. It's a superlative work and I collect reference books more than the things they reference. The first edition will be sold out soon and when the 2nd and 3rd volumes come out there will be folks scrambling for Vol. 1, which will likely be out of print. Negotiations are in place to publish Kriegsmodell in Germany.

    Default Bolt Action Military Rifles of the World

    Can anyone recommend (or not recommend) this book (Moybray and Puleo). I've seen it at gun shows, but the sellers usually start glaring at me if I spend more then a minute or so thumbing through it. My first impression is that it looks like a coffee table book - nice pictures, but not much information. Anybody care to "review" it?

    This is one of my favourite Mauser Books: The original Mauser "Copier Buch 91". It contains copies of ALL Mauser correspondences between March and Mai 1899. In total more than 1.000 letters! It's hard to read because of the handscript. But it's great fun and you'll find a lot of insights.

    See for example the english letter in the picture below.

    Regards,
    Olaf

    Mowbray Publishing in Woonsocket, RI has a new publication coming in from overseas; not here yet, but is listed in their catalog. I've ordered a copy because I couldn't resist the title and figure it ought to be interesting: "Ott-Helmuth von Lossnitzer, Technical Director of the Mauser Company, 1933-1945" by Leslie E. Field & Dr. Bas J. Masters. ADDED: Just rediscovered John Wall's comments about this book back in May; THEY made me decide to get a copy!

    Could you give the top 3 books that you would suggest to a newbie Mauser collector? WHat I would like to see is a survey of all the world's Mausers and what makes them special. I have owned several Mausers but collect Mosins. Would like to have a nice representative Mauser collection too.
