Book: Mowbray's Military Bolt Action Rifles of the World

You guys need to get this book. This Finnish section is pretty good (just missing a few things) but the overall book is outstanding. It may seem like a lot of coin for a book, but every page is loading with great photos, closeups of markings and features and lots of history about these rifles.

Thanks Cabby!

Just ordered one from amazon. Not cheap, but over 400 pages, and still cheaper then a Valmet Mag! :wink:

It is a very good book. Examine it closely, however, after you receive it. The first copy I received via Amazon was defective (improperly glued cover/spine) and fell apart as I opened the cover. Amazon was prompt with a replacement.

Mine was fine, I got one of the earliest ones. I understand that they are working on a similar style book for Military Semi-Autos....should be a keeper...
