The greatly expanded 137-page book on the Siamese Mauser ... Banzai Special Project No. 1 Revised Edition, The Siamese Mauser,
A Study Of Siamese / Thai Type 45 & Type 46 Long Rifles and Type 47 Carbines, Including An Overview Of Siamese/Thai Weapons 1860–2014 is now out for sale.
“A Study Of Siamese / Thai Type 45 & Type 46 Long Rifles and Type 47 Carbines, Including An Overview Of Siamese/Thai Weapons 1860–2014”, the much revised and greatly expanded book at last answers the question of why two different designations have been used for the rifles, as well as delving in much more detail into the histories and details of both the rifles and carbines than the earlier version. The book contains numerous color pictures of the rifles and carbines, part variations, and markings, as well as historical black and white images of the weapons in use in Siam / Thailand. Bayonets, ammunition, muzzle covers, and other accessories are covered in great detail. A comprehensive re-loading chapter covers both the 8x50Rmm Type 45 and 8x52Rmm Type 66 cartridges. Appendices detail rifles, carbines and handguns employed by the Siamese / Thai military services from 1860 through 2014. This subject has not been covered in any other publication.
