    Re: New Book on Dr. Edward Maynard Carbine and tape Primer Bio

    I just got mine yesterday and I only perused it lightly. It seems interesting enough. The pictures of the prototype made by Springfield Armory and the pictures of the hand carved wooden models by Doc Maynard himself are worth the price. Mine was a gift so the price was sweet! Knowledge is a hard thing to put a price on. That's just my opinion. I'll be spending a lot more time with it in the near future.
