We receive many comments and questions concerning U.S. military weapons. We strive to answer all inquiries in our magazine and newsletter and also offer a limited number of basic serial number look ups for our subscribers.
We also work with European collectors and researchers and find that there is a growing interest in U.S. Militray Arms outside of the United States.
We have major knowledge support from long time readers that include some of the most knowledgeable collectors and specialists in the U.S. arms collector fraternity.
We do not provide any price or value information on any weapon.
The increase in time and effort to do research at government facilities restrict many efforts.
The SRS founder, mentioned many times, that most serial numbers could be found and he spent many years in this effort. There are many unpublished numbers that were found many years ago. These will be added and also used for selected articles in the magazine. Additional efforts by ourselves and others continue, but it would take many years to assemble the data.
A selected index of prior articles will be generated for our readers. This includes newsletters from #1 through current magazines. Please email for data on the index for issues 1 through 40.
We have found more sources of very accurate data on trapdoors, Krags, 1903’s, and other weapons. This includes units using specific weapons and historical information. Our only limit in providing this information is time and travel efforts.
