Amazon.com sells it for $58.50 and I was curious as to why. Any of you guys have/seen it?

Its the Colt logo, cost a pretty penny for that.

Copywright 1988 (hardcover edition). I'm pretty sure you're right about that, but just about all the other gun books are around $20. Wonder what makes this one so special.

I've paid more for some books. Heck, if you want a good book, pay the ducats. There are some books I balked at when they went for $50 about 15 years ago. Now its $150 if you can find one.

I must be uninformed on this one, is that a lanyard loop on the magazine?

IIRC it was only the very early magazines? pre-1917 is what I'm thinking...

My pre 1920 1911 has it, a leftover from the horse calvry days.

"The earliest magazines (Step Base Bottom) do not appear to be two toned, but were heat treated and the halves show a slight difference in color. The type 1 magazine shows part of the bottom plate in the side view. These were used from serial #1 through about serial #4500. The second type magazine had a cut-out in the rear wall that allowed the sides to flex and avoided cracking the upper rear corners. The type II was used from about serial #4500 to serial #30000. The third type magazine had a lanyard loop as did the previous two types. The type III was used from about serial 30000 to about serial #130000. The type 4 magazine had no lanyard loop. And was used from about serial #130000 to the end of WWI."

This is a GREAT sight for 1911 collectors

It's probably a textbook for some college class.

But the good news is that means you can probably get a USED copy for $48.50.

No kidding!

Well since they don't sell to us lowly civillians anymore, they need a new cash cow.

Actually, it isn't so funny because it's true.

Well, whatever the reason...it's a 1911 book that I don't have. You know what that means.

For the price, it had better be written in blood!
