New. What do Mauser rifles have to do with a sultan's ink-smeared fingers, a Gilbert & Sullivan comic operetta, and Rastafarians? Terence Lapin knows, and he's telling. The revised and expanded second edition of the popular reference for the Mauser enthusiast, this book covers in detail the meanings and significance of words, numbers, dates, codes, coats of arms, and symbols found on Mauser military rifles from all over the world. Extensively illustrated and packed with information on these and many other features of the world's most popular bolt action rifles, Mauser Military Rifle Markings is a treasure chest for anyone who has ever wondered what the Persian, Turkish, Arabic, Chinese, or other exotic writing on his Mauser really says; why the date on his Siamese Mauser has only three digits; or why there's a swastika on his Chinese Mauser. The answers to these and dozens of other baffling questions are right here.
