He wrote the book that the rest of us refer to constantly.Always an interesting variety of items in his 118 catalogs dating back to 1952, and now available on his new web site.Items listed from many dealers under the guidance of Rob Robles. Well worth the trip from anywhere, including many who come from Europe.
Great for identification and history of these interesting and often affordable collector arms. Has detailed photos to identify M1 carbine buttplate makers that are big enough to be useful, only place I have found these.
Interesting to review for info, even if not eager to buy one (yet). These are very detailed and reflect the research and expertise of the member of this elite group of advanced collectors.
Most highly recommended, but it will take weeks to read them all, so make a schedule or list to keep track as you work through them.
