Hello everybody,

I just want to let you know that I have finished a new book:

U.S. M3 / M3A1 Submachine Gun "Grease Gun"

The book gives an insight into the history of this extraordinary weapon, from its development and the trials at Aberdeen via the manufacturing process to its use in conflicts around the world. It also describes rare versions in different calibers (.30 M1, 9x19), patents, changes in manufacturing and construction drawings, accessories (pouches, tools, training devices, curved barrels, etc.), manuals & instructions, foreign made copies (China, Agentina, etc), silencers, markings, repair and replacements, training on the weapon and ammunition (ball, tracer, etc.). The majority of the illustrations is in color.


-           German language only (sorry no English edition planned)

-           208 pages (bound with hardcover)

-           large size (7.9 x 12 inch / 21  x 30 cm)

-           560 illustrations (mostly in color)

 

Price inclusive shipping by registered mail is: 

 USA, NZ, Australia and other Non-EU:         $US 65.00

 

My email-address:  GGBuch @ web.de    (please delete the spaces)

 

With best wishes from Germany

Michael Heidler

It's a very simple weapon.  I was pleased it got time in Fury.

It sounds like an impressive book.  I had not heard of a .30" Carbine version.

They only made some prototypes. The trials were stopped when the M2 Carbine was adopted. The internal parts of the M3A1 had to be modified a lot ... heavier bolt, complicated return-spring combination (a short hard one and a softer longer one), different ejector. The problem was that the operator should cock the weapon with his finger, so they couldn't just put a harder spring in the weapon. Interesting stuff ;-)
