An excellent book.It not only informs you of the history and creation of the M14,but also how to glass bed it,sight it in,as well as stripping and assembly.There are also other helpful facts and figures to numerous to mention in this review.I would highly recommend this publication.When I purchased my M14 it had no instruction manual with it, so I bought this book which told me everything I needed to know.

While I realize that this book is not the Nth. college degree on M14'ism, I wasn't expecting that when I bought it. I knew without any doubt that there were other publications out there that could cover in depth specifics much better (and at greater expense) and that I could have slavishly scoured the internet for more and more detailed and specific information. However, I was not looking to become a great historian and armorer on the M14, all rolled into one. I am an owner and shooter that greatly admires this rifle and just wanted a nice, comfortable fireside book that gave me some basic knowledge (More than the owner's manual) all in one place that let me browse it's basic history and features. This book did that in spades and I will never have any regret in purchasing it. It is exactly what I wanted.

Overall a good book for information for those who need an introduction to this rifle. I was hoping for it to have part usage and numbers per a specific time period much like the other Joe Poyer books but it did not have much of that. Good refrence for commercial types also. I would say it is good reading for the price.

This is a very good book for the first time owner of a M1A (Not a lot of M-14s out there) and provides a good, although somewhat skimpy background on the development of this fine rifle. That is why the 4 our of 5 rating. The book also goes off on a bit of a tangent about optics and other areas but not so far as to detract from its intent which is to familiarize a new owner with the rifle he has. I like the style. I like the variety and the serial number and basic technical data. To me it is the perfect first book for the owner of his first M1A. Having had the good fortune to bet my life on the M-14 some years back (along with 14 mags; heavy!) I gripped about the weight right up until I started clearing out the jungle in front of me. Given the choice of the M-14 and the M-16 today I would gladly continue gripping about the weight right up to when Obama's henchmen showed up at my door.

Joe Poyer is a very knowledgeable author on military rifles. Although this is a very short book it provides a detailed description of the history and development of the M14/M1a rifle. He examines everything on a part-by-part basis. He also provides a guide for restoration and building a match rifle. The Appendices has a lot of information on parts and supplies. This is all written in a simple easy to read format. It is a must for collectors or even a shop manual.

This book is a great resource on the M-14 Rifle and the M-1A series of rifles. Kind of skimpy on the history but really good on modern application and techniques of using the weapon.

There are several other books out there that are more complete but if your going to have one book.. this is a good one.

This 3rd edition has very little new or corrected information from previous editions. There is very little (if any) material in this book not covered in more detail and greater accuracy in other publications. I had hopes the 3rd edition would fix the shortcomings (light on details) of the previous, but I am disappointed. For the person with very little knowledge of the M14 and its history, this is a decent "M14 for Dummies" book; for the serious collector or military arms history buff... don't waste your time or cash.

So, this book offers a lot of information. I especially like that it relates the article to historical data. The descriptions of the rifles made by the different manufacturers is also helpful.
