"Handguns and rifles carried by Russian and Soviet troops until 26 December 1991 - excluding full automatic".
That's a bold try. I wonder how in-depth and extensive this would be, because there were some really obscure weapons, even excluding full automatic
as for my upcoming book, I really hope it would be published toward the end of this year, but so far I have no firm date.

Still cheaper and clearer than collective themes like "Luger 08"... A hunting friend sold his Luger collection 5 years ago and bought a new Porsche 911 with the proceeds...
Although I cannot purchase fully automatic weapons, I am interested in it. Thank you for the link to the book!
I know that some obscure Russian weapons were sold in Germany through the Hermann Historica or its likes, but there are some handguns, for example, which are not available for collectors, such as those firing internally suppressed piston-operated ammo.

Hooray - the second draft arrived in my inbox yesterday so I'm now going through it line by line, checking and indexing. Not sure when it will actually be on sale, though.
The date is now 27/5/22 on the Crowood website.
Looks possible. I'm about halfway through it, checking for errors and indexing .
I look forward to its arrival Tony.
On a related note, I hope you've been checking the 'Ukraine Weapons Thread,' theres been a couple fantastic 30mm Autocannon fights against both tanks and IFVs, which I figured you'd get a kick out of. I'm not sure the last time thats happened - 1991?
