Pistols are listed by make and model. The user guide references the countries which used the holsters and shoulder stocks so that collectors can instantly refer to either a pistol model or country of use.

Allied Rifle Contracts in America is the first work to fully explore American production of foreign military rifles for the Allies during the First World War. Featured are the histories of the Mosin-Nagant and Winchester Model 1895, which were produced for Imperial Russia, the Model 1889 Mauser, made for Belgium and the Pattern 1914 which was built for the United Kingdom.

We have imported a small quantity of this great book. Karl Hanevik goes into every detail of the Norwegian Colt aka the Norwegian Model 1914, from the pistols imported from Colt to the domestic production made in Norway by Kongsberg, no aspects of its use in Norway have been spared, this book has detailed chapters on all accessories like holsters, ammunition, .22 caliber conversion kits, etc. click here for more
This interesting book gives a glimpse at some of the rarest and private Colts held in private collections. The book is labeled as an exhibition catalog, yet that term can be confusing. This on its own is a great hardbound reference book. click here for more
More than five years have passed since this
book project, a history of Fabrique Nationale (FN), begun. Many assumed that Ars Mechanica, The Utimate FN Book was to be an update to
Auguste Francotte and Claude Gaierís work, FN 100 YearsÖ However, any resemblance to previous FN
history books is at best superficial. Ars
Mechanica is by far the most detailed and comprehensive work on the subject.
