I had the pleasure of proof reading the 2 versions, and this is the most complete book on the HSc pistols at the moment. We were able to provide some information from Mauser to an already complete booklet, so that the majority of the current knowledge on the HSc pistols is finally gathered in one place: This book.

And at this price, it's a steal!
I am delighted that I am able to offer the books in Europe. These are soft cover bound books and can be sent as registered letter, so shipping is more affordable.

I purchased my copy a couple of months ago and could not be happier with the booklet.  "The Mauser HSc Pistol" is a bargain at the price and a must-have for any bookshelf.  It saved me many times the price of the booklet already.  I have no affiliation with the authors, I'm just a satisfied customer.

Thank you for your endorsement, Roger.  For Peter and I, this was a pure research project and not a commercial endeavor.  It was done because much of the information about the HSc was so fragmented and incorrect.  As it approached its current level of completeness (it's never really finished), we decided to share our efforts with other serious HSc collectors.  We are delighted that you found it helpful as you continue to expand your knowledge and collection of this extraordinary pistol design.

Great publication.  Mine is (C) 2013 and I think a first edition.  Is there a second addition?  How substantive are the updates to the second edition?

A high quality resource for the Mauser HSc pistol. I could not put my copy down. I loved the hard bound cover, that somewhat matches the period of the Mauser HSc... pure quality.  Do yourself a favor ... buy a copy!

Scott:  Legacy advises that they have a few left in stock (before reorder) that you can order even though the ad says "Out of Stock".  Any problems email Kurt Whiteman, owner of Legacy.
