Default FS: My book "M1 Garand Photo Essay"

This is my book which as the title suggests is a photo essay of the component parts of the M1 Rifle. The book is divided into 15 sections of photos of all of the parts of the various makers; good close up photos of the markings, with comparisons of the different manufacturers. A unique book for the US military and the M1 Garand Collector. Review at www.M1GarandPhotoEssay.com, 400 pages of photos and the parts. Privately published by the author Larry Babcock. This is a great tool for the M1 Garand or the U.S. Military collector.
Now avalible on E-Store

Larry,
I got mine today. I'm sure it'll save me more time and money than it cost. Thanks again.

This is an exceptional book - I use it all of the time to research my Garands. Wish Larry had done one on the Carbine. Highly recommended!

I bought this book after reading several reviews as I was looking for a third reference for Garand collecting. I recieved my copy from Larry today and I am very impressed. As was mentioned in an earlier post, the photography is very good so you can see all the subtle details in the manufacturing differences between manufacturers.

This is by far the best reference book I have seen so far on the M1 rifle, in my opinion worth every penny I spent. I can't begin to imagine how much time went into putting it together.

Steve
