Many good shooters can be had for, and are worth less, than a thousand bucks. In each of these sections, he has an identification section with comments and pictures on receivers, stocks, barrels, handguards, finish, rear sights and other determining details for collectors. Excellent book, good section on M1A1 Carbines spotting fakes By Bbd on May 18, Good excellent book I was surprised that it was particularly informative, especially pertaining to M1A1 paratrooper style M1 carbines apart from regular carbines and garands, of which you form an opinion as I've already years ago that if you see a m1a1 for sale, chances are its a standard m1 carbine action thrown onto a recently surplussed m1a1 stock set that originally came in this country on a full auto m2 carbine action that had to be destroyed except for parts, it never fails, everytime there is a wave of m2 carbine parts and parts for sale, suddenly there are suddenly loads of paratrooper carbines coming out of the woodwork, "arsenal fresh and all correct", with fuzzy photo's. Fair FR : This item is in okay condition.

The orientation of the N varied with some stamped sideways that appear to be the letter Z. Not something to carry around at it's weight! One collector I know wants to have a sample of every variation of the carbines produced by Inland and Winchester. This gun was really scratched up from the type three barrel band and it's hard service use. If there is fault it is that the book is almost too big, but that would be nit picking. The rifle ended up in the piles of ordnance reclaimed rifles to be made serviceable again.

Ah, the price of success! He makes a point to tailor most of his books for the new or intermediate collector. This remarkable book, based upon a vast collection of previously unpublished research, compiled with the aid of Garand experts from around the world, is the definitive guide to the most popular collectible firearm in America. Such was not the case with the M1 book and not the case with his new book on the Springfield. Try to stay away from import guns.

There were numerous exceptions to the rule, which makes the serious study of the Remington such an interesting AND frustrating experience! That one always confused me I remember seeing it on a site that dealt with the rearsenal and battlefield recovery of rifles, but I can't remember how I got to it.

By Yahoomarine on Dec 26, Wonderful book on the M1. Were any of these originally built with BA barrels? The early oval cut Bruce Canfields complete guide to the M1 Garand and the M1 Carbine book also command high prices.

Bruce should be extremely proud of this book. If all the visable parts are Winchester coded, trigger guard hammer and so on, there is a good chance the rest of the parts are Winchester also.

Five Stars By Michael J. My Uncle Loves This book! The front sights made by both companies were used by several different prime contractors. Even accessories and accouterments are given the same level of intense scrutiny. I read somewhere that SA had some trouble with their barrels in the early years, and that they used a few BA barrels at the factory.

You want to find guns that will only need a few parts to make it right. Even if you casually thumb through it, you should be able to spot an era correct rifle from one cobbled together from a pile of spare parts.

These hard to find low production carbines also bring in a premium for the collector. It is not unreasonable to ask a dealer or collector selling a carbine to pull the carbine from the stock for examination. I was struck by the fact that the red tape and inefficiency of anything involving the government was so pronounced even in the 's.

It gives a most in depth story of its development and the guns and manufacturers it competed with to come to be THE battle rifle of WWII and beyond.

Rondog I remember seeing it, but I couldn't tell ya where. Every time I open this book I am amazed by the sheer, muscular feat of documentation Canfield has achieved.

Also by this time all the prime contractors were in full production. The marks on it show their approval. Another way to go is to find nice clean shooter grade guns that may only need some correct coded parts to complete the gun back to original as issued condition. If you have an interest in the history of firearms or the M1 Garand this is the new "bible".

Everyone collector Need to have it in his library.
