Swedish Mauser Rifles. Kehaya & Poyer Swedish Mauser Rifles. Kehaya & Poyer

The writing team that brought you "The SKS Carbine" has done it again with the "Swedish Mauser Rifles." One the earliest military surplus imports into North America after World War II, more than 300,000 of these beautiful rifles are now in private American and Canadian hands and another 75,000+ in European gun racks. Yet, only two books have been written about this finest of all Mauser rifles, one in German and the other directed more toward shooters than collectors.
"The Swedish Mauser Rifles" provides the “Fore Collector’s Only” part-by-part examination for every one of the14 different models of this fine military and civilian match rifle. Every marking, every code is explained. A new, first ever list of serial number ranges by year has been compiled. All military and many civilian accessories are included with photos. Line drawings illustrate every part to provide the clearest view. A new color insert provides photos of the various models.
Also included is a discussion of production methods and total rifles produced for each model. Serial numbering is clarified between carbines and rifles (many share the same serial number). Each model is discussed in detail and illustrated with photos.
The target versions of this very fine rifle are analyzed and photographed. A complete discussion of the various sniper rifle models are included (with photos) up to the present PS90 based on the AWS Sniper Rifle. Ammunition types are listed and performance data is included. Appendices discuss production methods and totals produced; the obscure m/39 and /40 rifles, the development of the Swedish arms industry to the present, a short military history of Sweden, the composition of Swedish steel - which did not change from 1894 to the end of production in 1944 - and assembly/disassembly and trouble-shooting. We think this book will be a major contribution to the field of arms collecting.
"The Swedish Mauser Rifles" contains 263 pages packed with information and illustrations and photos. Perfect bound with four-color cover.

Mauser Rifles and Pistols. Smith. Mauser Rifles and Pistols. Smith.

This is a facsimile of “Mauser Rifles & Pistols” by W. H. B. Smith, originally published in 1958.

This book has been prepared directly from the records of the Waffenfabrik Mauser, from reports and publications by directors of the Mauser Werke A.-G., (Firearms Factory), from the Mauser memorial and records of R. H. Korn, who was Paul Mauser’s personal patent attorney, from the records of Ludwig Loewe and Co. of Berlin who were Mauser partners for many years, and from accounts of the Württembergische Vereinsbank of Stuttgart, financial partners and bankers for Mauser.

All photographs and drawings and all specifications except as noted are from the original drawings, photographs and specifications prepared by the Mauser organization for their official reports or for their international sales organizations.

Wherever possible direct translations from the pertinent German records have been retained in their essence, being expanded, edited and elaborated only where necessary to amplify the original text.

This book, while essentially an historical hand book for gun enthusiasts and for the millions of soldiers who possess European Mauser rifles as trophies, also has a secondary purpose. That secondary purpose is to present a detailed study of the advance of German small arms development through the years, so politicians and economists and statesman will have available an integrated study of one facet of militaristic evolution which has never before been presented.

This book is confined entirely to the facts of the Mauser history and of the arms Mauser developed; but its implications in world affairs are there for any analysts who are in a position to use them.

As a history of the rise and development of the Mauser line of weapons, this work is intended to satisfy all except the ultra-technical.

History of the Mauser Rifle in Chile: Mauser Chileno Modelo 1895, 1912, and 1935. Nielsen History of the Mauser Rifle in Chile: Mauser Chileno Modelo 1895, 1912, and 1935. Nielsen

As part of its rise as a regional South American power, Chile chose to emulate the highly successful Prussian military system in the last decades of the 19th century. Prior conflicts and the prospect of war with Argentina, which came to a head in the early 1890s, can be seen as the pretext for Chile’s purchase of “Prussian” military equipment, including Mauser rifles and Krupp cannons. This book summarizes important regional events, while also offering a general historical overview of Mauser developments. It will then proceed to expose the particulars of Chile’s Mausers, purchases that resulted in the Model 1895, 1912, and 1935. Also detailed are the technical specifics of each of these three models and the historical events surrounding their acquisition. The result is the first comprehensive attempt at documenting these important artifacts and events, which will, it is hoped, initiate further research into this fascinating topic.

Deluxe First Edition, 1996

Sniper Variations completes this important author's in-depth study of the German K98k rifle by concentrating on the telescope-sighted K98k, the specialist rifle of choice for most German snipers during World War II. Three different types of telescopes were mounted, on specially selected K98ks, first by designated Army Ordnance Supply Offices of the Heereszeugamter (H Za) and then by selected private contractors, using a variety of mounts. All are fully discussed and clearly depicted.

FN Mauser Rifles - Arming Belgium and the World. Vanderlinden FN Mauser Rifles - Arming Belgium and the World. Vanderlinden

FN Mauser Rifles, Arming Belgium and the World, by Anthony Vanderlinden, is the only book devoted to the history, models, variations, contracts, and accessories of the Mauser rifles and carbines built by Fabrique Nationale and Belgian arsenals.
The research for this book took more than seven years and includes the cooperation of FN, the Ars Mechanica Foundation, museums, and collectors. Attention was spent on addressing common misconceptions and detailing factory production processes and historical happenings.
This book covers the classic line of FN military Mauser rifles and carbines including contracts for the Model 1889, the Spanish Mauser (1893), Model 1922, Model 1924, Model 1930, and variants. Belgian arsenal models like the Belgian Model 1935 and 89/36 are covered in detail. Training rifles such as the Model 1905 and postwar Model 1930 variants are also discussed among other single-shot sporting rifles. The line of FN Deluxe and Supreme sporting rifles, especially variants imported into the United States, are also included. Much attention was spent on documenting and illustrating FN and Belgian bayonets and explaining common misconceptions.
Chapters further cover the history of Fabrique Nationale, the Belgian arsenals, wartime production, and the surprising role of the Belgian riflemen with their Model 1889 Mauser rifles in the Great War.
The book is illustrated with more than 1,250 color and black & white photographs; many of the period photographs have never been previously published.

Crown Jewels. The Mauser in Sweden. Jones Crown Jewels. The Mauser in Sweden. Jones

Here is the first in-depth study of all the Swedish Mausers - the 6.5mm m/94 carbines, m/96 long rifles, m/38 short rifles, Swedish K98Ks (called the m/39 in 7.92x57mm, then, after rechambering to fire the 8x63mm machinegun cartridge, the m/40); sniper rifles, and other military adaptations such as grenade launchers and artillery simulators.
Then the focus shifts to the experimental prototypes and trial match rifles of the 1950s - some in .30-'06 - and finally to the precision competition rifles which became famous around the world. These include the CG 63 and its two military versions, the m/6 and m/7; the folding-stock CG 62 and the CG 63S Biathlon rifles; the CG 63E, which was approved by the British National Rifle Association; the CG 63 Junior Rifles in .22LR calibre; and the later match rifles such as the FFV 67 and CG 80.
The Swedish 6.5x55mm m/94 cartridge, one of the most accurate military rounds ever designed, was further improved in 1941 by the adoption of the excellent m/41 boat-tailed "torpedo" bullet, and numerous loadings are depicted and discussed.
We also cover a wide variety of the micrometer-adjustment rear sight inserts and "diopter" receiver sights which were produced in order to allow shooters to take full advantage of the accuracy and precision of the Swedish Mauser. Full chapters on bayonets and the many accessories, both military and civilian, conclude.

Argentine Mauser Rifles. 1871-1959 Webster. Argentine Mauser Rifles. 1871-1959 Webster.

Argentine Mauser Rifles, 1871-1959
by Colin Webster
Argentina was one of the first nations to adopt the radically new bolt action rifle designed by Paul Mauser, the Model 1871. This began a tradition with the Argentine military that lasted until 1959, when the switch was made to the FAL self-loading rifle manufactured locally. While thousands of Argentine Mausers are available at reasonable prices to collectors, very little has been written about this line of major bolt action rifles. Colin Webster has corrected this situation. He has collected Argentine Mausers for years and while living and working in Argentina from 1999 to 2001, he took the opportunity to research the history and production of the Argentine Mauser. To that, he has added definitive analyses of the Mauser models of 1871, 1889, 1888, 189, 1909 and 1933. Various chapters cover each model complete with all variations including carbines, bayonet, sniper rifles and optics, and all accessories issued to the soldier. This is one of the most definitive works we have yet seen. The book is hardbound, 296 pages long, and profusely illustrated. It will answer any and all questions you could ever have about these fine rifles.

The Mauser Archive. Speed. The Mauser Archive. Speed.

All the previously available information on Mauser sporting arms has already appeared in the author's two previous Collector Grade titles: Mauser: Original Oberndorf Sporting Rifles (1997) and Mauser Smallbores: Sporting, Target & Training Rifles (1998). After their publication the author felt that no more significant discoveries remained to be made in this field, as any further factory documentation had presumably been lost or destroyed.

However, recently there have been two miraculous discoveries. First, hundreds of previously unpublished company documents have been located, which give us unprecedented insight into the workings of the Mauser firm almost from its inception right through both World Wars and the French occupation period. These include actual production and sales data, inventory lists, and cost and sale price calculations for all types of Mauser products - black powder arms, pistols, military arms (the Standard Modell, the K98k, the MG81 and MG151 and the Flak 38), centrefire hunting, sporting and target rifles, .22 sporting, target and training rifles, pressure test units, and more.

Secondly, some 300 fragile glass plate negatives have miraculously survived, which depict a variety of hitherto unknown Mauser sporting models in their original configurations. Many embody features not often encountered, and include rare prototypes and in-the-white or low-serial-numbered examples of most early and later Mauser .22 rifle models, Schützen-style, Wehrmanns and Einheits target rifles, and some never-before-seen factory-engraved and custom rifles. The book ends with a selection of full-colour views of high-grade Mauser sporters, many with special features, from the world's finest collections.

German Military Rifles 88 and 91 Firearms. Vol 2. Storz German Military Rifles 88 and 91 Firearms. Vol 2. Storz

This second volume deals with the 88 and 91 model firearms of the Imperial German Army. There has been no comprehensive work based on original sources dealing with these weapons and their history before now, although they were crucial to the transition from the black powder that had been in use for centuries to the nitrocellulose powder also known as smokeless powder. This change of propellant was a quantum leap in military armament, which changed conditions on the battlefield and within a few years led to the introduction of a less colourful and therefore less conspicuous field uniform.

German Military Rifles. Werder to the M/71.84 Rifle. Vol 1. Storz German Military Rifles. Werder to the M/71.84 Rifle. Vol 1. Storz

This work provides a detailed picture of the development of German rifles from the Werder rifle up to the M/71.84.
The text is accompanied
and supported by more than 900 original contemporary photographs, reproductions of documents and high quality colour photographs of existing items, including hundreds of details in close-up. Many of the objects, weapons and accessories are shown here for the first time. The result is a largely new portrayal, built on a broad base of primary sources, of the development of German long arms in the years after 1870, which is bound to remain the standard work on the subject for the foreseeable future. This book describes German military rifles of 11 mm calibre. Their common feature was that they fired cartridges with metal cases and black powder as their propellant. In Germany, it was Bavaria that was at the forefront of this development, with the M/69 rifle, also known as the Werder rifle. The reader will discover how this weapon was developed, produced and used, the problems which arose, how they were solved and how the rifle was finally taken out of service. Naturally all the variations, the accessories and the ammunition are also described in detail and shown in photographs.
The M/71 and M/71.84 rifles are dealt with in the same way and for the first time the Chassepot rifles used in the German Imperial Army are comprehensively presented.

The M98 Rifle and Carbine . Storz. The M98 Rifle and Carbine . Storz.

In 1898 the German army introduced a new rifle that was to influence not only the armament of the German armed forces until the mid 20th century, but also that of many other countries. This book deals in detail with the history of M 98 rifles and carbines in Germany between 1898 and 1918.
The book relies above all on the collections of the major military historical museums in Germany such as the Bayerisches Armeemuseum in Ingolstadt, the Wehrtechnische Studiensammlung in Koblenz and the Militärhistorisches Museum der Bundeswehr in Dresden. The Deutsches Historisches Museum in Berlin and the Royal Army Museum in Brussels also made their stocks available for this book. After years of research work in the archives in Munich, Dresden, Stuttgart and Suhl, new data, facts and contexts can now be presented to the public.
Hitherto unknown experimental rifles originating from the Prussian Rifle Inspection Commission allow the path to be reconstructed leading to the new weapon. Exotic models and special patterns such as rifles with telescopic sights, accessories, ammunition, bayonets and many other things belonging to the rifle are presented in detail in the illustrations and text. But the book is not confined to describing the artifacts, it also illuminates the historical, military and technological background.

The reader learns how troops handled weapons, how rifles and carbines were maintained at the time, how and according to which principles rifle training was carried out in peacetime and during the war and what role the rifle played in combat. The book also treats in detail technical modifications, manufacturing methods, the organization of mass production, state-run and private arms industry, production figures and the problems of arms supply during the First World War.
