Format: Hardcover
An interesting reference guide for a few of the world's popular firearms. Unfortunately, the nice hardcover spoils what essentially is just a "flip-book" of sorts. Not much meat in the background and current usage on each, but it appears as if the majority of the description lies in the detailing of the gun's internal operation and its development. In my opinion, I feel that same space could be put to better to use for a reference book of this type: I'm not trying to build the gun, I want to know about it in its real-world standpoint! Pictures are also seriously lacking; only two plain pictures and one internal diagram for most. Perhaps I am being little harsh, so I'm giving it 4 points, just to be fair.
My bottom line: Buy this book if you want to start a reference collection or if you really have nothing else to buy. A good read, but there are clearly others better out there.

First of all I am a real enthusiast of weapons, this is one of my six-greenhill military manuals. It is a very interesting book that reads very well and the author likes to keep it general. It covers a lot of military weapons from revolvers, pistols and assault rifles. I recommend this book to those who like to know information about general weapons.
And if your not a weapons freak!!, don't do my error of buying a book titled (modern military rifles, Greenhill military manuals) because it's information is likely the same as this book except for handguns. Overall I am very happy with my Greenhill Military Manuals.

This book is perfect if you like rifles, pistols, and revolvers. This book doesn't have submachine guns though they have military rifles. There is another volume for submachine guns. If you want it all, get the most recent Jane's edition.
