SPRINGFIELD RESEARCH SERVICE SERIAL NUMBERS OF
U.S. MARTIAL ARMS, VOLUME I: An excellent
addition to the library of any collector of U.S. martial
firearms, this Volume I of the Springfield Research
Service’s Serial Numbers of U.S. Martial Arms
series provides 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. This is the first of
that series. As the information he discovered was
published in each succeeding volume, no one volume is
comprehensive. The sets of four volumes are long out of
print and are now only available in the secondary
market, and at that these volumes – singly or in sets -
are fairly scarce.
This Volume I was recently found in an old collection.
It shows some shelf wear, but is still firmly bound with
presentable covers and no loss of pages, or other
damage. (0301) $140
