Both books are excellent and are "must haves." Signed: co-author of first and author of second. (Would I lie to you?)

Apologies for the necropost, but does anybody have book #2, on the US conversions, for sale?

I just bought one of these rifles on Gunbroker, and would love more info on it. Happy to pay for a scan if the book isn’t available.

Thanks,
Trog
