Guys

Just click on the image of the book and it will download. Then save it to your computer. It works this way regardless of whether you donate or not. That said, thank you for donating to WACA. Every little bit helps keep our organization funded to continue to produce such a great magazine publication, shows, and this website we all enjoy.

WOW…this is great! I”m not into it for 100 pages yet and am learning a lot. Are there other similar books for the different models? I’m aware of the 1895 one that recently came out….(forgive me on remembering the author)

Rob Kassab and Brad Dunbar wrote the excellent 1895 book. Both are WACA members. If your interests include rimfires Jeff Abendshien wrote THE book on the Model 69 and has another book coming out soon. Jeff is also a WACA member and frequent contributor to this forum. There are dozens of great books to guide and enrich your collecting activities, look for books by Madis, Houze, Schwing and Campbell, among others. Acquiring and reading these books has become a pursuit for many of us, including me. Books may seem expensive but they’ll help you make better collecting decisions. They’re also very enjoyable but be careful, they’re just as addictive as Winchesters.

I recently posted this on another Forum.  This is the list of Winchester books that I have.  The prices listed are not current values.  Out of print books are very expensive in most cases.

Thanks Mike. Rob actually reached out through PM and graciously offered an extra copy of his, just out of my price range, but very cool of him. I have the madis book only right now and after reading the one posted here (thread starter), I need more!

Thanks, Chuck. Was wanting to post a link but was called away. I suppose there are 6-10 books on that list that most of us consider essential and I know there are a few that I am keeping an eye out for. A very comprehensive reference library, indeed!
I must warn you, Jeremy, many of these books are out of print and some command a premium. A book may seem expensive but the knowledge they contain can also prevent very expensive mistakes.

In addition to gun books being cheap insurance in avoiding buying mistakes, they greatly enhance the pleasure of gun collecting the more knowledgeable you become.  From the looks of my library, you can see I’m a believer in gun books.

I’ve noticed that on some already, I keep an eye out at the used bookstores my wife likes to go to, just for that occasional diamond in the rough, although they’re pretty good at spotting the valuable ones too…sounds good on the coffee.  JP

The list is about 1/3 of the gun reference books and loading manuals that I have.  My library has a little bit from most manufacturers.
