    Default so what's the best book ?

    So i am loving the Karabiner books. I have an interest in G/ k43s and trying to learn more.
    what's the best book out there for this? Is it Hitler's Garands? or is there another one on the same caliber as the authors /owners of this forum ?

    thanks in advance.

    Right now Hitler's Garand is the only one. Weaver is currently working on a new edition.

    Hitler's Garands is it. In addition, I would recommend to go to page 1 of this forum and start reading every thread possible. Look through the picture reference forum for G/K43s as well. I wish I was around for the G/K43 forum.

    Peter Senich "The German Sniper" discusses the rifle and Claus (https://claus.espeholt.dk) also examines the rifle in detail but Weaver has the best book. Weaver even admits that there were some errors and gaps in his initial project, hence a second edition in the works.

    As others have said above, “Hitler’s Garands” is oddly it.

    If only a book on the G.41....volume one and the G/K.43 volume II would exist.....maybe authored by Bruce Karem and Michael Steves?????? Imagine those two volumes in our reference libraries.

    There was copy of Hitlerís Garands on eBay just a couple days ago. Might still be there. Itís well worth having and can be expensive. Expect a couple hundred as a starting price point.

    Hitler Garands is considered the most "complete" book. They go quicker than you can get an email alert on eBay--it's crazy. Someone got extremely lucky and got one for $60.00 (unheard of), otherwise expect to pay between $250-300.

    Got mine off gunboards, guy posted it and I grabbed it within an hour. Just be patient you'll find one.

    Weaver is working on a new set breaking it down into 2 books, so G41 will get its own book. Simpson is going to be selling it. I see him at the Houston show every time and weíve talked about it.

    Simpson is at every SOS/NGD since I can remember. Hopefully this year is no exception. Very nice man with much knowledge. That said, every gun he gets, he does not know all, sometimes a plus as he sold two Hungarian M52s as PUs for $1500 when marketed value was $2500 and PU was $800. I got a Commercial/Military M1911A1 from him/Delbert(gone now and his 1911 expert, and he pretty much was) affordable and worth a lot today. Very pleasant man, not so much his son(probably a lack of passion unlike his dad's whom is a true collector). They should be in both shows. Hold your wallet for more opinions, based more on cost than fakery. We have done quite a bit of trading and buying/selling. I will be happy to accompany member friends over to his table, it will likely help.
