Quick Reference Guides

I mentioned the other day keeping a copy of Green Eyes, Black Rifles near my desk for handy reference, and so I figure I'll list out the other books I keep handy. Sometimes it's easier than opening another tab, and sometimes they contain info that's not really otherwise searchable or available online.

  *The Carr book is essential for anyone who wants to venture into collecting Savage pocket autos. It concisely breaks down the 1907, 1915, and 1917 into all their consecutive subtypes in chronological order by the different distinguishing features, and it's small enough to carry along to gun shows.

**R.K. Wilson's delightful textbook, as complete a guide to early autos as there is, is being reprinted in paperback!
