Yep, after seeing copies showing up on eBay and Amazon for as much as $500, I realized that if we don’t do a second printing I will become the very thing I hate dealing with: a reference book with a speculator market. So, we are doing a second printing.
This will be the standard red cover only, without tip-in pages or cocktail sheets. It will be available in both standard and signed-by-me copies. The cover will be slightly different in the fine details, as we are now using a different (and better!) printer than when we did the first run.
The actual content of the book is essentially unchanged. We used the opportunity to fix a handful of typographical problems, but made no substantive additions.
The reprint can be pre-ordered now, with delivery anticipated for August. If you order now, we do charge you now – if you are not comfortable with that, I will be making another announcement when the books arrive and you can order then. Also, if you order multiple items now and they are not all in stock (ie, Chassepot to FAMAS), we will wait to ship your order until everything is here. If you want items to ship separately, place two separate orders.
At Forgotten Weapons I think the most interesting guns out there are the most obscure ones. I try to search out experimental and prototype weapons and show you how they work, in addition to more conventional guns that you may not have heard of before. You’re much more likely to find a video on the Cei Rigotti or Webley-Fosbery here than an AR or Glock. So, do you want to learn about something new today? Then stick around!
