    You can buy it by the author Michael Heidler.

    He wrote in another Forum, new books are printed.
    I think it`s the most thorough and comprehensive listings of German WaA manufacturing marks and sub-contractors codes I have ever seen. An invaluable tool for the serious German military firearms and militaria collector.

    Thumbs up Re: German manufacturing codes

    Hello collectors!

    Interesting to see my book here in the forum. Yes, I'm the author

    Thanks for the kind words. It took me many years of research to finish this book, so I'm glad to hear that it is useful for you.

    I have attached some pics, so that others can see what is inside.
    It's still available

    With best wishes from Germany
    Michael

    I have found your forum while researching for rifle grenades (I'm working on a new book about rifle grenades and launchers). There are some really interesting postings here and I check it through the next days

    Thanks, that would be interesting. I have already one, but the inner parts are a bit rusty. I will open a new thread about my rifle grenades the next days. Here a small photo of some of them:
