Exclamation "Small Arms Illustrated"...

A visual encyclopaedia of firearms, made by somebody in the Far East (Taiwan, I think). It's not bad at all. Find it out HERE, maybe it's worth to put a link from the main page.

P.S.: In the "Modern Small Arms" section have spotted only one fake gun in the overall (the "HK416-K" on page 67), and some imprecision in attribution of designs, but the overall rest is correct (including the MSG-2000 design on page 62, it's a long rumored prototype that HK should be developing). Above all, the strange "VB Berapi" firearms listed under "Malaysia" on page 07 ARE REAL (try search for "VB Berapi" on Google..."). All OK in the sections "Modern Sidearms" and "Small Arms of Wolrd War 2". Thumbs up for those beginners who managed to come out with a good work overall. This denotes passion. They might as well have a great future in firearms, should ever the law in their Country change or should they move to a more gun-friendly place.

Hey PT--
Don't ya think it strange the Bravo 5 is absent? j/k

What can you dredge up on the Spanish IPSC pistols on page S36-- modern sidearms?
All I've found is a footnote in one article from Shooting Times back in 01 and it's just a slight about "foreign STI 2011 knockoffs from Spain and the Phillipines."

It's just a prototype, after all...

Just seek for it on the manufacturer's website...

There are lots of mistakes in Polish weapons names.

Question Re: "Small Arms Illustrated"...

Too many to mention, or could you specify which ones you refer to (since i belive you might be the one with the most knowledge of polish firearms here)?
