DESCRIPTION OF DECAPPING AND CLEANING TOOLS FOR SMALL ARMS CARTRIDGES MANUAL, 1907, 1917:  An excellent original edition of the manual that accompanied the Cartridge Decapping and Cleaning Tool Sets, originally issued in 1907, with revised editions issued in 1909 and 1912, this particular manual was printed by the Washington Government Printing Office in 1917. 

This manual consists of five pages of text and a fold out plate showing all the components for the Decapping and Cleaning Tool Set which were issued to the soldiers for reloading cartridges for the M1898 (Krag) .30 caliber Rifle, the M1903 .30 caliber Rifle, the .38 caliber Pistol, and the M1909 and M1911 .45 caliber Pistols.  Each one of these manuals, serial numbered and considered part of the unitís accountable inventory, was issued with the tool sets. 

This specimen has been folded and shows very minor soiling on the cover, but there are no tears, wear or other damage.  These reloading tool manuals are fairly scarce and are necessary to complete the tools set.  SOLD
