America's Gun: The Practical AR15
Forty-five years in the making, America's Gun: The Practical AR15 is Zediker's fourth book on AR15s. While keeping the focus on solid advice and insight, this particular book deviates from his previous ones that placed emphasis on precision target rifles suitable for competition. Instead, for this book Zediker delivers what he succinctly describes as, "the AR15 book for the MOST of us."

Beginning with the history of the rifle, Zediker includes 35 sections that provide a comprehensive look at all the different AR15 systems and components over a whopping 378 jam-packed pages. Additionally, for DIY types there's 10 detailed AR15 project builds, with tips on correct installation of components and, most importantlyhow to avoid common pitfalls.

Most intriguing is the section where Zediker thoroughly examines popular cartridge alternatives to the .223 Rem./5.56mm for AR15s. There's also detailed information on how the choice of caliber influences the function of the AR15 action and magazine. Since this is a Glen Zediker book, there's also detailed tips for handloaders.

You can purchase a copy of this new book today, by either calling 1-662-473-6107 or by visiting www.BuyZedikerBooks.com. Also, be on the lookout for a detailed review of America's Gun: The Practical AR15 in a future issue of Shooting Sports USA.
