Very Good. 0117719307. Viii, 80 pages, well illustrated, pictorial wrappers, very good. 8 by 11 inches. Second impression. Scarce. At head of title: Ministry of Defence. From the introduction: "The basic function of the Pattern Room is to provide a service to Ministry of Defence departments involved in the design, manufacture and quality control of service small arms. Samples of complete weapons, component parts, tools and accessories for all British small arms are retained as reference guides for the use of official departments and approved contractors. Because the procurement policy for additional material has always included prototype models as well as service equipment, many of the items held are the only surviving examples of their type. This catalogue describes one section of the Pattern Room collection, British and Commonwealth manually operated shoulder arms. Included are certain foreign designs which have identifiable British connections, such as arms which have been adapted for trials in this country. "; 80 pages.
