Back Issues of the Carbine Club Newsletter are Available.

Individual copies of the Carbine Club’s newsletters (paper only, no electronic) are available. The cost is $5 each postpaid for issues 1-323 and $10 each for issues 324-384. The latter issues are generally larger and 17 of them contain color pages.

Complete back-issue sets of the newsletters (1-384) are available for $280 postpaid (USA and Canada. Other nations, inquire before ordering.) The complete set comprises over 3000 pages. They are not stapled. It is strongly recommended that purchasers use a 3-hole punch and store the newsletters in large 3-ring binders. You will need 4-5 of these.

The meager profit if any from the sale of individual issues and complete back-issue sets are used to help pay our internet server fees to keep the website and forum operating. No one on the website staff is compensated. All are volunteers.  

Paypal - carbinecal30@gmail.com - is the preferred method of payment. 

Checks, made payable to Carbine Cal 30, may be mailed to: 

Carbine Cal 30
458 Stimson Ave.
Pismo Beach, CA 93449

If purchasing an individual issue, please send a separate email to the above address, stating which issue you want.

The earlier newsletters were done on a typewriter, with photos taped onto the master copy, and unfortunately the master copies were not retained until we switched to electronically-created newsletters in the latter years of the Carbine Club. Hence, many of the early photos did not photocopy or scan well, and are very dark. The overall quality of the scans also vary somewhat. However, the newsletters are complete, and the articles within are the result of literally thousands of collectors submitting data over 39 years, and other members compiling and presenting this information.

An electronic, searchable pdf index of articles/subjects is available on the website, and can be used to easily find the topics that interest you. Be sure to read the “search rules” at the top of the index to expedite your search.

Any questions or problems, contact Marty Black at carbinecal30@gmail.com

Index of Back Issues.

Carbine of the Month Index

Searchable Index of Back Issues 1-384

Searchable Index by Subject Sort by J.R.2009

Editor's Note: The index of articles below is a reprint from CCNL 366 and 367. It has also been updated to include all of the CCNL's to 384. Thanks to fellow club member RedSpecial for the update.

This is the first in a two-part series of newsletter indexes, specific to carbine manufacturers. It includes references to articles that will help a collector know what parts are correct in a carbine, but does not include those articles that detail a manufacturer's historical information, documents, interviews, production milestones, inspection criteria, minor reports, prototypes, etc. Readers should refer to our master Newsletter Index for more information on a specific manufacturer, as well as a list of all Carbine of the Month (COM) features.

I am a relative novice to the Carbine Club, and purchased the back issues of the newsletters. They are a wealth of information and a tremendous resource, but I found myself "trying to drink from a fire hose." To organize the tremendous amount of data, I purchased a 3 ring binder, with a tab for each of the manufacturers. Then, each time I found an article or snippet of information about a particular manufacturer, I copied it and placed it behind the tab for that manufacturer.

One of my favorite parts of each newsletter is the COM (Carbine of the Month), and I have put a copy of each COM behind my tabs - also by manufacturer. That way, if you find a carbine that you want to restore or that you may want to purchase, you can check your reference binder and get a good idea of what a carbine close to it in serial number range looks like.
