    When they were selling his estate I believe you could by the 2vol set for $60. Always good for unwritten tidbits of history about AO Niedner and his operations.

    Michael also took some gorgeous pictures of rifles in his collection in color, which, admittedly, the pictures in the book don't do justice.

    Thought I'd bump this one more time.
    I recently purchased "The Book of the Springfield" from 1932. Likely the first book written with in depth details on sporter 1903s. So far it's been a fun read...the author does not hold his opinions back!
    Michael Petrov's books were also great, of course!

    Anyone heard of any other book I should try to get my hands on?
