WW2 FMs - M1 Rifle and M1 Carbine
Previously available only as fragile and expensive originals, or overpriced photocopies. Now we can offer reasonably priced, quality reprints of the exact same pocket sized WWII era Field Manuals used by the fighting men who put Omaha Beach and Iwo Jima under new management. The TMs (Technical Manuals) for these two classic weapons have always been readily available, and are great references for the armorer. The Field Manuals offered here cover all necessary user level mechanical information such as disassembly and assembly, maintenance, cleaning, functioning, operation, stoppages, spare parts, instruments and ammunition. But those topics are just the starting point of the FM. The bulk of these FMs deal with actual training and tactical employment of these weapons on both an individual and unit level. Includes individual and unit marksmanship practice and training; how to engage a single enemy soldier, moving vehicles or overflying aircraft. This is information not found in the Technical Manual, but is covered in these books in some detail. Both softbound.

BLACK RIFLE II - The M16 Into the 21st Century
by Christopher R. Bartocci. Sequel to the 1987 The Black Rifle. The M16 has gone on to become the longest-serving shoulder arm in US history, and the benchmark against which any new military rifle, American or otherwise, must now be compared.

This book chronicles all the new third- and fourth-generation rifle and carbine models which have been introduced by Colt and Diemaco since The Black Rifle was originally published, and describes and depicts the myriad of enhanced sights and rails systems which help make the M16s of today the most versatile, modular and effective combat weapons in the world. It also includes a comprehensive survey of the Colt semi-automatic-only family of commercial and law enforcement products, in .222 Remington, 5.56mm (.223 Remington), 9mm and 7.62x39mm, and an in-depth Reference Compendium of all Colt military and civilian models and components.

After a decade of retaking their stolen freedoms, the people of Wyoming are forced to finally confront their jealous masters in the U.S. Government. Can a lone, courageous state successfully resist federal tyranny, or has the Bill of Rights been reduced to a myth? Can an allegedly free people act free, or is our liberty just a 4th of July farce?

Elected in 2014 on the Laissez-Faire Party ticket, he enjoys nearly full support of the legislature to return Wyoming to a long-lost era of liberty. But how far can he and the people of his state go before Washington feels compelled to act? Will Wyoming's free and independent course reach actual secession? Will President Melvin Connor suppress the maverick Western state with federal troops? Softbound, 454 pages.
