Jon Speed's new 550 page book on Waffenfabrik Mauser Oberndorf, "The Mauser Archive", has finally been printed and is now available by mail order and at shows. It is published by Collector Grade Publications in Canada. This is the book Jon has been working on for a number of years. Its publication has been rumored to be "just around the corner" for almost three years..and now it's finally here.

The book is accurately titled as an "Archive" because it features hundreds of pages of original recently-located Mauser source documents, including many period photographs, all previously unpublished. Because the sporting rifles market was highly competitive and required extensive advertising, many of the most interesting documents and photographs are of Mauser's extensive line of small and large bore sporting arms. Additionally, images of the original 19th and 20th century sales and production records (1887-1945) are shown. Most importantly, Mr. Speed has translated everything into English.

If you are interested in Mauser sporting rifles made at Oberndorf, or Mausers in general, you will want to check out this book.
Regards,
John
