2) Book:

                BOX MAGAZINES

            Box magazines have essentially been ignored by writers of Thompson articles and collectors alike. This book examines the origin, design, patents, markings, and manufacturers of the magazines as well as providing a complete identification of all known box magazines. This book also corrects the myths and misconceptions commonly accepted and repeated in other writer’s works. For the first time, Thompson box magazines are treated in their own right rather than as an incidental accessory of the gun. Richardson, soft back, 56 pages, 8 ˝" x 11", $16 

 

 

 

               

    

 

 

3) Book:

                DRUM MAGAZINES TYPES "L" & "C"

Drum Magazines have often been mentioned in various books and articles on the Thompson Submachine Gun but not until the First Edition of this book had the Drum Magazine been covered in depth. From the inception of the drum concept through design and manufacturing, this book covered it all. For the first time the various models of the Types "C" and "L" Drums were identified and given names. Thompson collectors finally had a basic reference on Thompson drum magazines. The Second Edition vastly expanded the First Edition. Now the Third Edition is available which includes an additional drum model, a chapter on accessories, and more information. Every known production drum is completely photographed in full size. Richardson, soft back, 118 pages, 8˝" x 11", $20
