Century of Achievement. Colt's 100th Anniversary Manual 1836 - 1936 Century of Achievement. Colt's 100th Anniversary Manual 1836 - 1936

Why would Paladin Press reprint a 70-year-old Colt firearm catalog that doesn't contain a single AR-15 rifle, M4 carbine or stainless-steel pistol? Because A Century of Achievement is far more than just a catalog of products; it's a unique insight into Colt's celebration of its first 100 years as a firearms manufacturer. By perusing the guns in these pages and taking a guided tour through the 1930s manufacturing plant in Hartford, Connecticut, you will gain a new appreciation for the exceptional materials and craftsmanship that went into the firearms that built Colt's reputation. As an additional bonus, the catalog includes a personal shooting lesson from Col. Charles Askins, legendary Border Patrol officer, soldier and expert shot. Original copies of A Century of Achievement sell for hundreds of dollars today. Now, this quality reprint edition is available for collectors, historians, Colt aficionados and anyone who wants a glimpse into one company's influence on an entire nation

Synopsis:
This inexpensive new book explores the Darling story, answering questions that have plagued collectors for generations. 104 pgs.
More Information:
For decades, one of the most tantalizing guns in America has been the Darling Pepperbox. The Darling brothers filed their patent for a revolver mechanism just seven weeks after Colt did. While Colt went on to riches and fame, the Darlings died in poverty, and their unique revolving pepperbox is one of the rarest guns known to collectors. Many have claimed that it was the Darlings, not Colt, who were the real inventors of the revolver, but is this true? This inexpensive new book explores the Darling story, answering questions that have plagued collectors for generations

Variations of Colt's. Breslin, Price, Pirie, Variations of Colt's. Breslin, Price, Pirie,


Heavily illustrated with over 160 photographs and superb technical drawings by Rainer Dethloff. Documented by a decade's worth of research and Colt factory records, including production quantities and extensive serial number data!
Be prepared for some surprises...this field of collecting will be changed forever! This landmark book on Colt's New Model Pocket and Police Revolvers permits the reader to finally understand these interesting and diverse early cartridge pistols. Until now, most authors and collectors have labeled these guns "Small Frame Conversions" and declared them confusing. As it happens, there are seven basic variations which are documented and described with production programs and quantities given for each. As the authors of this book point out, most of these guns were actually made as cartridge pistols and were not converted from percussion, although the conversions form a key part of this book and are described in detail.
The three authors are all long-time Colt collectors and, independently, each has been collecting data for over ten years. Their research permitted them to understand and interpret previously unexamined Colt factory records and to locate key documents in the Connecticut State Library.

The Model 1911 and Model 1911A1
Military and Commercial Pistols
2nd Edition, Revised & Expanded

by Joe Poyer
A new revised and expanded edition of the Model 1911 and Model 1911A1 Military and Commercial Pistols is now available. Sixteen pages of new information regarding models, stocks, mainspring housings, magazines, markings, serial numbers, and finishes to help identify your Model 1911 or Model 1911A1 more exactly.

Nearly five years in preparation, this books examines John Browning's most famous pistol from barrel bushing to hammer to lanyard loop on a part-by-part basis.

As always in the “For Collectors Only®” series any change or variation in a part is described by serial number range, making it possible to determine the authenticity of any Model 1911 or Model 1911A1 by year of manufacture.
The Model 1911 and Model 1911A1 Military and Commercial Pistols is now 560 pages long. It includes 82 tables detailing parts and markings and 672 photos and drawings. An eight page color insert includes rarely seen examples of the Model 1911 and Model 1911A1.
Parts are described in chapters organized by assembly—receiver, slide and magazine. Each part of each assembly—trigger system, magazine release, sights, etc are then described complete with markings and other identifying characteristics. Parts are differentiated by model and manufacturer, i.e. Colt, Springfield Armory, Remington Arms-UMC, Singer, Ithaca , Remington Rand and Union Switch & Signal. All Colt model and variation parts are also described where they differ from the .45 ACP part.
All military and commercial markings are listed by date or serial number range of use. Serial numbers are listed in twenty-six individual tables both by military and the individual commercial models, and by other manufacturers. An appendix contains a serial number listing organized both by manufacturing and shipping date. Serial numbers for British military, Canadian, Argentine, Norwegian, and Russian military pistols are also given.
Individual chapters and appendices provide detailed examinations of markings on receivers, slides and barrels, including military inspection and commercial markings, and photographs of all slide markings. Finishes are discussed for both military and commercial pistols by serial number ranges. Accoutrements and accessories are thoroughly explored and photographed including all belts, magazine pockets, and holsters .
A complete listing of all U.S. military Model 1912, 1916, M3, M7, and M15 holster manufacturers is included. U.S. military-issue ammunition in .45 ACP is described in detail. A photo-illustrated assembly/disassembly procedure shows the most efficient way to service the pistol.
Our technical adviser, Karl Karash, has produced a portfolio of over 5,000 color photographs of Model 1911/1911A1 pistols, both military and commercial (see examples below). This collection is an invaluable tool for researching the M1911/M1911A1 pistol. A total of 205 pistols were photographed to show full size and in color, right and left views of each pistol from serial no. 43 to the end of U.S. military and commercial production, plus close-ups of all significant parts and markings (over 5,000 photographs in all). Each photograph can be enlarged 4 times on your computer screen without losing resolution.

The Burgess Long Range Repeating Rifle Model 1878
Burgess Long Range Repeating Rifle Model 1878 ,I’ve been getting curious to learn more about Andrew Burgess and his seldom-recognised guns, and took a look to see what books might be available on the subject. As it turns out, there are basically only two – one is readily available and inexpensive, and the other is out of print.
The available volume is Dale Olson’s The Burgess Long Range Repeating Rifle Model 1878 and Other Related Stories, published just a few years ago in (appropriately) Wyoming. For the price, it is a good reference, although I suspect the unavailable book (Samuel Maxwell’s Lever Action Magazine Rifles, Derived from the Patents of Andrew Burgess) would have significantly more technical detail. This is a review of Olson’s book, but I think it is important to put it in the appropriate context. Olson’s work is approximately 160 pages long, and half of that space is used to list the serial numbers and primarily characteristics of the known surviving examples of Burgess, Kennedy, and Scharf rifles. The remaining 80 pages include biographies of Andrew Burgess, Eli Whitney, and Eli Whitney Jr. (Whitney’s factory produced Burgess rifles in several forms), a developmental history of the Burgess 1878, a brief history of the Burgess Gun Company, and anecdotes of interesting individual Burgess rifles. The most detailed of these is an extended story of a frontiersman named W.F. “Bear” Davis, who was particularly known for an incident which left his Burgess rifle with teeth marks in the forearm, Davis with a bitten hand, and a bear shot thoroughly dead.
Olson did a pretty good job balancing his content between the technical, the historical, and the cultural. There is enough mechanical detail here to inform the gunsmithing types, while also having a good amount of context and background of how Burgess influenced the whole world of gunmaking at the time . The anecdotal recounting of varied histories of individual Burgess rifles is also appealing.
One thing that Olson makes a good start at is giving the reader an appreciation for just how widespread Burgess’ influence was. For example, many don’t realise that when Colt stopped making the Colt-Burgess rifle and stepped up production of the Colt Lightning pump-action rifle, it was not a complete loss for Burgess – he had patents licensed for use in the Lightning. Burgess’ patents were used in Schulhof pistols, some Mannlicher rifles, and the Winchester 1893 pump shotgun to name a few. This is truly a man who deserves far more recognition than he had gotten.
