---SOLD---

 

I have an original U.S. War Department manual for sale titled, "FM 23-35, Automatic Pistol, Caliber .45, M1911 and M1911A1," dated April 30, 1940, for $35, plus $2.75 Media Mail shipping.  This also includes a separate, 2-page supplement (C1) inserted inside the manual.  The manual itself is 96 pages long.

 
This manual is in almost fine condition, with a pencil scribble on the front cover, and light handling marks.  The covers are crisp.  This is a really nice example of this manual, and it covers all the basics about operating and maintaining the pistol.  If you were one of the lucky ones to recently purchase an M1911A1 from the CMP, this would be a great collectible accessory to add to your pistol.
 
Here are a couple of photos.

Anyway, the manual is $35, plus $2.75 Media Mail shipping, and if you are in Ohio I must collect your local sales tax.  You can pay by PayPal, or by check.  Please reply to the thread if interested, or you can PM me, or send an email to my address below.
 
Thanks!

David,

In the pre WW1 era M1911 ,45's, magazines had a lanyard loop on the bottom of the magazine.

Have you ever seen a picture, in a Calvary Magazine, of several mags , connected by lanyards and fastened to the saddle.

This would enable the trooper  to shoot and drop empty mags without loosing them??

Jim,

I have not seen that in any manual or other early publication.
