By Glen D. Zediker
470 pages. 7" x 10". Softbound. Not just a revision of Glen’s first, ground-breaking AR book, but a completely new volume written from the ground up with the benefit of the author’s 10 additional years of competitive shooting with the AR-15. Detailed discussion of receivers, triggers, bolts, bolt carriers, barrels and twist rates, gas system options, springs, magazines and mag components, grips, buttstocks, handguards, and the selection of these components for specific competition, tactical, and field applications. Plenty of straight talk on ammunition and handloading, cleaning, and troubleshooting. Plus comprehensive discussion of “iron” combat sights, adjustable target sights, scopes, red dots, and sight mounts. Almost half the book is devoted to 10 project guns built by Glen, including tactical carbine, high-power match rifle, “raceguns,” varmint rifle, civilian-legal carbine, AR-style .308, and .22 LR conversions. Illustrated with 475 detailed black-and-white photographs.
