Back from April 2021 Tulsa show with lots of treasures to post soon such as new G43 parts, several magazines, K43 stock, bbled. receiver, ZF4 scopes/mounts, late-war wood-grip Radom P.35 and others. But a glowing review of Rough Forged came out in the American Rifleman and shipping all of these unexpected orders has just consumed all available time. See the review at: Front Sight Post Publishing. Also, I've decided to part with some of the items in the book, so watch for some rare G.41, G.43, K.43 optics and accessories as time permits to photograph and post. Now...go get your vaccine. It's safe, promise.

The book is on track, just proofed the layout of Chapter 20. Don't think this will delay the late Summer/early Fall release. See www.frontsightpostpublishing.com website. Wash your hands!
(19 MAR 20) Well, sorry to say the big Tulsa show has been cancelled, so we'll see you all in the Fall. But, while we're all fighting each other during the toilet paper and hand sanitizer Armageddon, I'm pleased to announce that the HG's revision, Rough Forged: A History and Collector's Guide to German Self-Loading Rifles of WWII is almost through layout and editing and should be at the printer soon. I've approved cover concept above. We'll launch the facebook page and website page in the next few weeks: www.frontsightpostpublishing.com, and will begin taking pre-orders in late summer. Email me if you want to be on the list. Two volumes, color, ca. 950+ pages with many hundreds of images, price TBD as will still need to firm up the printing quote.
