Default M1 Garand and M1 Carbine Books

Closed...remaining books moved to another forum...

I downsized my military surplus firearms over the past two years so it’s time to downsize most of my reference books. There will be several different posts so please check the other listings…

These books are in very good to excellent condition, and I tried to note any issues I see. They were stored on a bookshelf in my firearms room which is in my climate-controlled/finished basement. Some of these books are no longer in print.

Sales Information:

Payment is by USPS Money Order. If I have conducted business with you in the past, I will consider a personal check.

NO electronic payments of any type…sorry…I’m old school…

Prices DO NOT include shipping and insurance costs (if desired). Books can be shipped media or Priority. I prefer not to use UPS or FedEx as I am not close to either shipping location.

I have provided the approximate weight of each book and they will be mailed USPS from Floyds Knobs, IN 47119. You can use the USPS website with the below listed weight and Zip to get an estimate of shipping cost to you.

Once you have committed to buy, I will box and weigh the book(s) and provide the shipping and insurance (if desired) costs. I will post the tracking number when shipped and can provide a copy of the receipt if desired, just let me know. Note: if you pass on insurance, I am not responsible for any loss or damage.

Please direct all inquiries and offers or requests for more pictures/information to my email address:

fourdees@hotmail.com

I do not always get notification on Forum PMs so email is just easier for me to monitor without having a full PM box to deal with. I am open to reasonable offers…so drop me an email.

Please reply to this listing with “I’ll take XX” and send me an email with your full address.

Please note that “I’ll take XX” trumps all emails for additional information or offers. I’ll gladly entertain questions and offers, but “I’ll take XX” gets the book(s).
