Well, I just received my new book titled "French Service Handguns 1858-2004" by Eugene Medlin and Jean Huon.
If you are a handgun collector or a weapon historian, check this book out. It starts at the beginning of French handgun procurement and goes up to today. Hardbound with nice black and white photos with close ups on markings, acton photos and data charts.
Don't skip this one just because you aren't a "French Pistol " collector. The French used many guns from many countries.
If you are a Spanish collector, Axis collector, Savage collector, holster collector, revolver collector, WW1 or WW2 collector (like me) Check it out!
Lots of help went into this book from collectors in NAPCA and on this board.
Can you tell I love gun books! Can't wait for the next one!
PS: Got mine from "Tommygun Books" Phone 314 846-9460. It was $40 + shipping.
