Mel Carpenter has an article in the Spring 2021 issue of “ARMAX, the Journal of Contemporary Arms.” This is a resurrection of ARMAX, last published by the Cody Firearms Museum in 1996, with the Museum once again involved, along with ARES (Armament Research Services.)
" *Armax: The Journal of Contemporary Arms* is published by Helios House press twice yearly, in partnership with the Cody Firearms Museum. The Editor invites the submission of original scholarly articles examining those small arms and light weapons, and their ammunition, produced from 1880 to the present day."
This is a project to bring information on weapons and ammunition to a higher academic standard to gain acceptance into the academic and legislative world. In my view, this is a worthwhile project which cartridge collectors should support, with subscriptions and submission of articles.
Mel’s article is " The MBAssociates M1 Silent Pistol & Javette Projectiles: Chemical & Biological Warfare at the Individual Level" but only an abstract and snippet are available without subscription.
Subscriptions are $100.00 for two issues a year, or you can buy single issues or articles.
