Thanks for being so helpful, Tim!

This would be useful for maintenance, etc, not for education. I would not be surprised if the CMP didn't order a run of copies and include them with the pistols, as they did with the carbines.

There are multiple editions of this TM, with different titles (same FM #) and different content:

1940s - Automatic Pistol caliber .45, 1911 and 1911A1

1946 - 1970s - Pistols and Revolvers

Current FM 3-23.35 - Combat Training with Pistols, M9 and M11

Just bought Meadows' and Poyer's books off of Amazon. But then, I am a book nut. I also have two of Clawson's books - the big one and the collector one.

I like Poyer's books for quick parts checking. I realize that he always has some errors, but they all do, even Bruce Canfield's new The M1 Garand Rifle. NO slam on that book; it is fantastic. But discrepancies creep into any book, if only through editing, layout, and proofing errors.

Poyer is an easy first reference to start the checking of a particular part to a particular (date, mnaufacturer, etc.) firearm.

The more and different authors you read, the better you can form a gestalt in your own mind.

Thanks for the suggestions!

In the same vein- W.Kuleck has more than one book out on numerous military firearms, very entertaining reads. A real down-to-earth writing style. He lives just north of Akron,Oh.

Wow. You weren't joking when you said his books are expensive. I found two, one at $1000 and the other at $1495.
