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.

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.
