Although I have used rifles and shotguns for much of my life, the terminology of the AR-15 rifle and its parts required much use of the internet to fleshout the explanations. There was no exploded AR-15 diagram and labeling of parts in the book. None of the photos in the book were labeled only captioned. Once I learned terminology from other sources, I was able to enjoy the information presented by the author.
Great book, it had everything I wanted to know about my new rifle, including reviews of different brands. Cleaning procedure, safety of use, and reviews of accessories. Volume two is even better.
This book provides an excellent understanding to the inner-workings of the AR-15. From general how-it-works, to terminal ballistics comparisons this book has it all.
I am new to the AR15 world and this was a very good reference. I was able understand what the good and bad of these systems were.
Read ths book and it helped me with shoting my bb gun
