From the Publisher
This is the first book in the Winchester Lever Action Repeating Firearms series, the first new information published in more than 25 years on these fine, historical rifles. We at North Cape Publications have endeavored to make it as useful a series as possible. Each model is examined on a part-by-part basis. All changes to any part are linked to a serial number range at which that change was made. Armed with this information, the collector can determine very quickly whether or not the Winchester model is in examining is "correct as manufactured" or if incorrect parts have been added. The series also provides full details on markings and wood and metal finishes. Extensive appendices are included with each book in the series to provide specific information about rare or special models.

I already own the George Madis Winchester Book, which is certainly the definitive work on the subject, as well as "the first winchester", a very informative study of the 1866.
The collectors only series was more or less a reader's digest version on Madis' book, but without the great illustrations. Certainy not meant to entertain, but to inform, I did find the drawings a bit crude, and think they could have easily been replaced with photography which would make for a far more enjoyable reference book.
They are, however, very well laid-out, and easy to find the basic information you may be seeking. Certainly the format does not allow for a great deal of detail regarding the vast numbers of variations available for most models, which, at least to me, is the most interesting part of collecting Winchesters.
Myself I found that it filled the gaps that some other publications didn't quite cover.They were very good,but this book covers it all.
