I have an original U.S. War Department manual for sale titled, "TM 9-285, Shotguns, All Types," dated September 21, 1942, for $40, plus $3.27 Media Mail shipping.
This manual covers the various shotguns in use during WWII, including the Winchester Models 97 and 12, the Stevens Models M620A, M520, , and M620, the Ithaca Model 37, The Remington Models 10, 11, and 31, and the Savage Model 720. It is 257 pages long. The condition is good plus, with a couple of small chips out of the corner of the last two pages, and general foxing and browning from age. It also has a small, about 3/8" tear to the cover at the top of the back of the spine. Overall, this is a nice example of this manual that would be great in anyone's collection who has an interest in WWII shotguns.
Here is a photo. I did not scan the inside of the manual, because the binding is still very tight, and I did not want to change that.
