Mauser Military Rifles of the World (Mauser Military Rifles of the World, 2nd ed)
Mauser military rifles offer collectors almost unlimited variations, and author Bob Ball continues to find rare and interesting specimens. This 2nd edition brings more than 100 new photographs of these historic rifles and the wars in which they were carried. Every detail is presented, from the length and weight of the rifle to the manufacturer's markings. This book shows collectors precisely how to identify every model from 1871 to 1945 and provides production figures and the relative rarity of each model. Because Mauser rifles were produced under contract in so many different nations, the book is organised alphabetically by country and the year of production.
