FABRICATION OF SMALL ARMS ORDNANCE MEMORANDA NO. 22 - REPRINT OF A VERY DETAILED 1878 ORDNANCE MANUAL:  This is a reprint of Ordnance Memoranda No. 22, an 8.5" by 5.5" 250 page manual published in 1878 by General Benet in his role as the Chief of Ordnance.  The text, with accompanying diagrams, provides very detailed descriptions of the methods of manufacture, repair, storage and transport of the Model 1873 Trapdoor Rifles and Carbines.  Far more detailed than the common user manual issued with each firearm to the individual soldier, this manual was intended for the direction and guidance of the officers and soldiers assigned to Ordnance Department duties. 

This copy is ex libris and it is in very good condition, showing no wear. (0346)  $15
