The Reising submachine gun is one of the least recognized weapons to see service with U.S. forces in World War II. The Thompson, the M3 and M3A1 submachine guns are much more familiar to collectors and individuals. Part of the reason for the Reising’s obscurity is its failure as a military weapon. What is often overlooked is the success and widespread use of the Reising in law enforcement.
This book covers the Reising guns in great detail including history, development, manufacturing, trials and testing, military/police use, parts and accessories, collecting and shooting, prototypes and experimental models, manuals and more. Includes automatic and semiautomatic models 50, 55, 60, 65 and MC-58.
