About this Item

1059 pages, very well illustrated, tables, cloth, 8-1/2 by 11 inches, very good. Volume 1 only. Illustrated by James B. Meek. Pease bear in mind this book weighs over seven pounds. From the preface: The Encyclopedia of Modern Firearms: Parts and Assembly, is, as its name implies, an encyclopedic collection of all information available from American arms manufacturers pertaining to the parts for, assembly and disassembly, repair and maintenance of the firearms of their manufacture as of January 1, 1959. Its purpose is to supply, for the first time in history, to those associated with guns, either professionally or as an avocation, a single source of authoritative information covering the technical and mechanic features of a firearm's physical components, its repair, replacement, manufacture and care. Its intended place is on the craftsman's bench or in his study where this information can be readily utilized. The encyclopedia also offers two additional unique advantages to its users. First, it contains the complete specifications of the hundreds of pins, screws and helical springs shown in the many parts lists throughout the book. This information has never before been available in printed form. Second, The Encyclopedia contains in their entirety the four Department of the Army Technical manuals covering sporting shotguns, the Springfield rifle and the .45 Cal. Automatic pistol. These are replete with precisely written service and repair instructions and accompanying pertinent illustrations of every phase of the work." ; 1059 pages. Bookseller Inventory # 31962
