SPRINGFIELD RESEARCH SERVICE SERIAL NUMBERS OF U.S. MARTIAL ARMS - COMPLETE 4 VOLUME SET:  An excellent addition to the library of any collector of U.S. martial firearms, the volumes of the Springfield Research Service’s Serial Numbers of U.S. Martial Arms series provide an interesting reference source.   

Gleaned from the records available at the National Archives, Frank Mallory assembled data regarding firearms he found in unit records which he published over time in a four volume series.  As the information he discovered was published in each succeeding volume, no one single volume is comprehensive.  The sets of four volumes are long out of print and are now only available in the secondary market, and these volumes – singly or in sets - are fairly scarce.   

This four volume set is fresh out of an old collection, and it is the first set that I have had in several years.  All four books show some handling - Volumes I & II more than Volumes III & IV - however all four are complete with both covers in presentable condition, not missing any pages, and the bindings are still strong and intact.   

This scarce offering will be an excellent addition to your collection library, and in addition to researching the serial number of your firearm to see if it is one of those listed, the entries also provide information as to which arms were issued to which units, at what period of history.  SOLD
