  1. Amazon has the book on special for $29.67 currently! I surely won't be able to match that price when I get my copies. If you want one cheap, this is your chance! David
  2. copdoc, Thanks for your kind words. I've seen 2 of the Reising knives on eBay in the past, but it's been a while. Thanks Again! David
  3. I shot my M1 Thompson with an MGC magazine for many years before I realized it was different. I am almost certain that it was the magazine supplied with my WH M1, which I bought NIB in 1988. David Albert dalbert@sturmgewehr.com
  4. Hi Nick, Like you, it was the squared-off fins that caught my attention, but I will certainly defer to gijve's assessment. David
  5. If your only Reising is an MC-58, you are doing very well. I still don't have one. Thanks for ordering the book. I hope you enjoy it. Happy Thanksgiving! David
  6. Is anyone else wondering about the originality of the barrel on this Colt? It may just be the lighting, or the angle, but I'm wondering if the barrel was replaced. David
  7. I have an M.A.B. 38/49 manual that is available for sale. These are extremely hard to find. It includes English notes, but is mainly in Italian. PM me for a price. David
  8. This new book has been in the works for 8 years, and as of this morning, is available for purchase on Amazon. The book's title is "The Many Firearm Designs of Eugene Reising," written by me, and published by Amazon. The foreword is by Frank Iannamico. "Thompson Printers" in Newark, OH did the cover layout. 😎 It is available at the following link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/1505541166/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?crid=27JP8SDMFHQUC&keywords=the+many+firearm+designs+of+eugene+rising&qid=1669078109&sprefix=the+many+firearm+designs+of+eugene+reising%2Caps%2C117&sr=8-1-fkmr0 Amazon is currently selling the book for 20% off the list price of $59.99, so they are $47.96 at this moment. You will not be able to get one any cheaper from me, and I don't yet have any author copies in hand. I expect to have some copies available around December 4th, and will make some signed copies available when I receive them. If you want the book now, buy it on Amazon! For the first time since my early start of the book, I read it all the way through over the weekend. It affirmed to me just how much information, and especially how much new information is included. This book will not win any artistic awards, and it's not a marvel of digital layout. It's full of collector and historical information, and hundreds of photos. It contains over 46,600 written words, plus thousands more included in letters, manuals, and vintage advertising content. It is a 350 page paperback book, in 6" x 9" format, printed in color. So, why would this new book on Eugene Reising be interesting to me? There are many reasons. It covers Eugene Reising's career from start to finish, with information gained from research and family resources, including some very surprising twists and turns The history of Harrington and Richardson Arms Co. (H&R) is covered more than in any other previously published work, including a very detailed account of the H&R bankruptcy, and subsequent activity since the original company folded in 1986 Learn about Eugene Reising's involvement with the design and adoption of the iconic M1911 pistol, while working with legendary gun designer John Browning, and stumping for the pistol with the likes of John T. Thompson If you like marksmanship, you will be impressed with Mr. Reising's proficiency, how it relates to the M1911, and how it influenced his designs Included in the book, printed in their entirety are two manuals for the MC-58 Rifle from my collection that have been virtually unobtainable - They are USMC TM-ORD-2000, and USMC SL-4-01423A - This includes a technical manual, and a stock list - This content is worth the price of the book by itself The Reising .22 Automatic Pistol is covered in great detail, which is a subject that has had very little coverage previously New information on the Reising Model 50 Submachine Gun, including a rebuttal to critics by Eugene Reising himself Reising .22 automatic rifles are covered in 4 chapters, including the Models 65, 165, 150, 151, and MC-58 - Mr. Reising's .22 rifles are the main focus of the book If you have any interest in Reising manuals, catalogs, and other paper items, they are covered extensively, as well as various accessories for the Reising pistol, submachine guns, and .22 rifles In addition to the two MC-58 manuals that are reprinted within, several instruction sheets for various Reising firearms are included You can explore many other firearms that Eugene Reising designed over the years, including a belt fed machine gun that competed with the Browning M1917 during WWI, some other submachine guns, tubular receiver M14's, the M14 Simulator, T30's, the "Guerrilla Rifle," and various other prototypes and personal firearms The book includes photos of many family heirlooms handed down by Eugene Reising and many previously unpublished photos It contains serial number data for over 460 examples of Reising .22 rifles collected over the last 8 years If you are a firearm collector, you will find interest in this book. It may even inspire you to seek more information that can expand our knowledge of the subject. I hope you will enjoy it, and if you're looking for an easy Christmas or Hanukkah present for which you can just send your significant other an Amazon link, this is a book for you. Thanks!

  10. Is this a Kahr AO M1 Carbine, or a Kahr AO Model 1927A1? David
  11. None of the pinned posts survived the software conversion with their embedded photo links active. It's a huge project to update them all, but the links that you can see within the posts are still good if you paste them into your browser. I know that's not the ideal solution. I'm in the very final stages of finishing up a book project currently, and plan to look at what it would take to fix some of the pinned content soon. David Albert dalbert@sturmgewehr.com
  12. Steelflood, I posted the information below almost 18 years ago, and it is included in the reference thread. I think we should look to the new Gallery feature as an opportunity to preserve photos and other data. I'm certainly open to others creating additional content there.

  13. I never thought we'd be dealing with repros of repros. I may need to revive and update the repro presentation... I also have a Richardson grip in my collection. David
  14. I was sad to hear recently that Mike was in hospice care, and even more sad to hear this morning that he passed away. I spent many fun hours and days with him at shows where we displayed the SVDM Thompsons, and I will cherish the memories of the conversations we shared. I will never forget the time he handed me #2347 to shoot an L-drum through. Rest in peace, my friend... David Albert
