Charles Clawson's Clawson's "Collectors guide to Colt .45 Service Pistols, Models 1911 and 1911A1" Third edition, Hardback, 146 pages, is now “out of print”. My original supply of books is completely gone and the only source left is the secondary market (Amazon, etc.) where you may be able to purchase a previously owned copy. I just re-purchased a small number of new books from a dealer who I previously sold them to. I will be selling these few books as a package consisting of: my picture CD, The new printing of Joe Poyer’s "The Model 1911 and Model 1911A1 Military and Commercial Pistols", and Charles Clawson’s “Collectors guide to Colt .45 Service Pistols, Models 1911 and 1911A1" Third edition, Hardback, 146 pages”. The price for the package is: $135 postpaid to the USA.
To order the above package, or a CD alone (The CD alone is $20 shipped to Continental USA,) send me an email directly at firstname.lastname@example.org .
I am including in the package Joe Poyer's "The Model 1911 and Model 1911A1 Military and Commercial Pistols" It is softbound, 544 pages, and contains lots of pictures. Craig Riesch and I helped edit this book, and I highly recommend it along with Clawson's Collector's guide. Joe Poyer’s book is $35.95 alone postpaid to the USA.
The only other dealers that I know of who have any remaining copies of Charles Clawson’s Collector’s Guide are:
Tommy Hypes @ (540) 639-6807 and Scott Duff www.scott-duff.com
The price from both dealers is: $125 plus shipping for Charles Clawson’s “Collectors Guide” alone.
