Best known for Forgotten Weapons, the author Ian McCollum is a friend of Varusteleka. How did this came to be? Read the story here!

This book is the first English-language work to comprehensively cover the subject, and includes all major models of French rifles:

  • Chassepot
  • Gras
  • Kropatschek
  • Lebel
  • Berthier
  • RSC
  • MAS-36
  • MAS-40/44/49/56
  • FR-F1/2
  • FAMAS

Each chapter includes a history of the rifle’s development and its intended use, along with information concerning known variants, production numbers, markings, disassembly and mechanical operation, bayonets, and a history of deployment and combat use. French small arms have played a unique role in global firearms development, often ahead of the curve and always unique. Supported by world-class color photography and printed to the highest standards, Chassepot to FAMAS is not just a valuable reference tool but also a beautiful book worthy of any discerning library.

2nd printing, published by Headstamp Publishing, 2019.

I bought this through the original Kickstarter campaign. If you are into esoteric firearms knowledge it is absolutely worth every penny- every chapter is chock-full of interesting facts and context for the story of each rifle being considered. As a bonus, its a beautiful book! High-quality pictures, maps, and illustrations.

Highly recommend.

Please hire Ian as a clothing model. I want to see him on every page of your website. Oh the book, it is the best if you like French rifles. I'd rather English language books on all things Finish military though. Get me ski troop winter combat manuals translated to English, a history of Finish firearms, a history of meat products in a can with unfortunate sounding names, all things Finland. We love Finland!

Holy crap. While he's at it, Ian should consider handling his merchandise through Varusteleka altogether, considering how much of a fiasco the company currently handling his merch is.

I'd definitely buy more merch thru Varusteleka, even though it'd be coming back over the pond to Canada.
