    Hitler's Garands is a great book. When Rough Forged was coming out I didn't even consider selling my copy.

    I am a little surprised he got that much for a used book though, even though it seems to be in excellent condition.

    It's not just one.

    Check out all of the offerings on that Canadian Amazon site. All different sellers. Prices:

    $1588, new
    $1215, used, "Book Bargains"
    $1217, used, "calibris"
    $1215, used, "Paper Cavalier Canada"
    $1222, used, "Books Unplugged"
    $1260, used, "Books Mela."

    Some of these sellers are in the UK and USA.

    Oddly enough none of these sellers, or prices, appear on the Amazon USA listings; top price there is a mere $944 (Hurry! Quantities limited! Act now!)

    My read is... sellers know Canadians will fall for this, so that's where they list 'em.

    I bank on these idiots to help pay for my collection. As soon as I heard of the new books, I dropped my old one to cash in. It paid for the set and I have a pile of money left over. I donít view them as a three volume set, although others are welcome to.


    I just offloaded my copy of FN Browning Pistols. A third edition is coming out soon.

    This is something I do fairly often, probably 6-7 times now. I dumped my copy of Dolfís Vickers book when I heard another was coming out. Still waiting for it to show in the mail.

    I agree. I sold my copy a couple years ago when the new book was announced. If Hitler's Garand had good info then why was it not included in the new books? And if the new books are complete then why do I need Hitler's Garand?

    HG was it $60 when it came out. I don't remember any more.

    300? That guy got a better deal than the buyer who bought mine. I got $370 for the copy of HG I had. I listed it on ebay IIRC in 2019 and thats what the bidders ran it up to.

    Itíll move too. I have a copy of HGs but I have no interest in selling it. I think the new 2 volume set is a fantastic addition but I do think most serious collectors would still prefer all three books, but thatís just my two cents. I was fortunate enough to grab my HG copy at a pretty fair price several years ago.

    I agree...I believe the intent by Darrin was to have the two Volume Set as an adjunct to his first book, hence one reason why it wasn't a book revision like Sturmgewehr.
    He released the two new volumes to provide more information and to correct any mistakes in his first book. I know he has taken some heat for leaving information out of these two volumes and/or for having some mistakes. We not infallible, so I really don't blame him one bit.

    Same goes for BBOTW, it is still a good book and an excellent book for the time. However as we all know better books and more knowledge has been discovered.
