I was scanning the forum and noticed you had this book listed as out of print. It has been updated and re-printed by Schiffer Publishing.
www.schifferbooks.com
(No, I don't get anything out of sales other than bragging rights. I was fortunate enough to get to do most of the photographs.)

03 man ,
Thanks to you and the other members here for the reference materials, publications, threads posted and hard work. It is much appreciated by a 52 year old "newbie Arisaka" owner such as myself. You guys are a wealth of information and a lot of fun. Regards....ZZ

Apparently Teri's Nambu World changed her website to: nambuworld.com

Hopefully a moderator can correct the website link above?

Looking for some books, if available please PM:

Early Arisakas
Japanese Trainers Book
Any Other Rifle Reference books from the Type 30-Newer

I have several already I purchased through Doss/Ruth and Banzai links. I also spoke with someone at SOS who mentioned that the "books" that Doss/Ruth had arent being sold at this time, which is a shame.

Thanks
