Hi Guys, rolleyes.gif

Just to let those of you who don't already know or as yet received your notification cards that Gordon Herigstad has just released his latest edition of the Colt Thompson Serial numbers book and addendum for those of you who already have the book. ohmy.gif

This is a great addition for the real serious Thompson collector.
It not only gives information on the location and history of many of the fifteen thousand Colt guns made but also detailed history on subjects such as the Dillinger Thompsons and of course my favourite subject, the Rorke Guns and the "Irish Swords" plus much much more.

I understand that demand is heavy and it is only a very limited edition.

Books will be avaliable on Gordons stall at the SAR show next month or you can contact Gordon by e-mail at gordoncolt@aol.com or telephone (310) 831-9339 or Fax (310) 831-9338.

See you all at the SAR show.

Regards

Murray. rolleyes.gif

Sig,
Planning on using them as bookends?

Murray,
Did Gordon forget about those who already have a copy and are supposed to get the updated pages?

Arthur
Even with the sarcasm, a Good Idea, book ends to hold all the other TSMGbooks!
I know I would not be one with more than one copy his book.l
It beats flipping back through the updates from my viewpoint.
It would not be the only TSMG book I have a couple copies of.
My other thought was to sell the older version one day.
Haven't decided.
