Hey folks, if you are looking for an affordable book on how to assemble an AR rifle that is step-by-step with a ton of photos – check out Rob Reaser’s book “AR-15 Rifle Builder’s Manual: An Illustrated, Step-by-Step Guide to Assembling the AR-15 Rifle”. I bought this because I have the Amazon Kindle app on my Samsung tablet and the book was real cheap so I figured why not – I might pick up something new.
This book is aimed at the novice and, to be clear, is an assembly guide. It is not aimed at engineers or guys who want to really get into the guts from an armorer’s perspective. The author literally walks a beginner through everything. I’m not at that stage any more but I could really appreciate his attention to detail.
I know a lot of guys are intimidated by the thought of assembling an AR rifle but Mr. Reaser really does a nice job of stepping you through everything. So, if you want to build your first AR – get either the Kindle ($7.99) or print edition of this book ($13.49).
