Today we’re looking at VIS Radom: A Study and Photographic Album of Poland’s Finest Pistol, by William J. York. The Radom is not a as well known as other pistols of the era (like the 1911, Browning High-Power, or Walther P38), but is an excellent gun and has a devoted following. It is also one of those pistols that would up being used on all sides of a conflict – in this case by the Polish Army, the German Wehrmacht, and the Polish underground resistance.
William York’s recently published book is a wealth of information on the Radom, and a must for anyone seriously interested in the history and evolution of this pistol.
Despite its quality, we are pretty sure this book will fall out of print relatively quickly, simply because the audience for such a specialized book is small. So if this is something that interests you, we recommend picking up a copy now while it’s still available new. Once the printing is sold out, the price will take a nice jump up.
