The majority of the illustrations is in color.

    I know ... but unfortunately I do not have any plans to publish this book in English. My English language skills are not perfect enough for so many pages of text and I can not afford a professional translator to do this job. There is no money to earn with this kind of special interest literature. My only English book is about the Finnish Suomi SMG. So for the next few years this book will only be available in German language. But it contains 560 illustrations ;-)

    I recently had an opportunity to fire this weapon. I loved it. Lower cycle rate allowed me to stay on target even being .45 cal.
    We have met the enemy and have learned nothing more about him. I have, however, learned some things about myself. There are things men can do to one another that are sobering to the soul. It is one thing to reconcile these things with God, but another to square it with yourself. - Robert Leckie
