This extremely detailed and well-illustrated reference by Richard W.D. Ball covers the many Mauser military rifles from 1871 to the post-World War II era. Entries are organized by country and the models adopted by that country, including many rare and little-known variants. Over 1,300 photos make identification easy for collectors, including many close-ups of manufacturer’s markings and the crests of different countries the rifles were made for. This is a great source of knowledge for the collector, shooter, or anyone interested in the history and identification of these classic arms. 448 pages, hardbound. 8½" x 11" format.
