The Finish Submachine Gun Suomi M/31 by Michael Heidler

Direct from Germany, hard cover book, signed by the author!

The "9.00 konepistooli M / 31", usually just called affectionately "Suomi", is the most well-known Finnish weapon of World War II. It still stands for outstanding quality and precision. And they taught the Russian invaders fear.  This book will give an insight into the history of this extraordinary weapon, from its development via the manufacturing through to its use in Winter War (1939 – 1940), Continuation War (1941 – 1944) and finally in Lapland War (1944 – 1945). It also describes the lesser known variations like the bunker- and tank-Suomi, the magazines and the accessories.  The majority of the wartime photos used in this book were never published.  English and German language in the same book.  96 pages with 270 illustrations.  $Out of stock

Original Colt Model O Armorer's Manual for 1911 Pistols.  52 pages, text and illustrations.  Includes disassembly, assembly, general parts fitting, maintenance.  New $8.00
