    Default Book on German Pistols

    Hi
    Can any one recommend any books on ww2 German pistols? I have a copy of Gun's of the Reich By George Markham and also Weapons and Fighting Tactics of the Waffen SS.Im looking for a book that would go into detail (serial no's/dates and so on).That would also include captured pistols such as Vis Radomís and Browning HP'S.I dont really want to spen £100's of pounds on an out of print book.

    Many thanks in advance

    Hello Bill
    Thanks for the reply. I searched for Jan Still's books and his luger series is between £250-£550 and the axis pistols book is even more.His latest book Central powers pistols is much more reasonable (I guess its not out of print YET).But I seem to get the impression it will be concentrated on lugers and quickly skip over the items I would like to focus on the hp's the vis's and so on. Is this not the case as I would hate to buy it to find 4oo pages of lugers and 50 pages to cover the rest?

    Thanks Bill

    Hi, the Stills book you need, and want, sounds like " Axis Pistols" It is the best of his books for the many varieties the Germans used in WW2. "Axis Pistols" has all the pistols. I bought mine direct from Jan about 5-6 years ago for $59US. I am amazed they go for $250-300 dollars or more now.

    Regards, Steve

    I have seen this book and all I come back with is out of stock. I have seen on other forums people talking about looking for this book and finding sealed copies for $2000yes $2000.I have seen it for sale on this site Axis Pist0ls, Vol II, by Jan C. Stiller - 1ST ED. - St. Catharines Books For Sale - Kijiji St. Catharines
    But it looks like itís a US thing and the price seems "to good to be true" (and itís usually correct).
    Thank you Kilroy

    Jan Still's books are great, BUT if you did not buy them when they first came out you need a sack of $$$ for them now. I think he still has some of the last books advertised for sale.

    Hi Bill, I have that one too. Good book, and it has very good pics of German holsters, and a few other things not in Stills book. The book is not near as thorough and complete as Axis Pistols. Whittington's book/books, along with "Axis pistols" is really very helpful, especially for newer collectors. They compliment each other well I think.

    If true these "Axis Pistols" books are so expensive now, that is really the epitomy of "supply and demand" I guess I should not have wrote a couple small notes in mine, and some serials of my pistols.

    Regards, Steve
