    "Enfield Production GR7"

    That made me do a double-take. That just drips Cold War kino.

    I guess Vickers publishes through headstamp or was bought by them? I thought Vickers was its own thing or something, but if headstamp keeps them coming that is nice. They are expensive books but they look nice. I have the HK pistols, need the submachine gun and rifles book. I thought maybe rifles would cover the et cetera, like grenade launchers, flares, underwater gun, but maybe that is going in vol 4.
