    I'm just getting into the AR world, just bought my first. I want learn as much as I can about the rifle and have a reference book to fall back on. Do you have a recommendation for a book on how to carry out caliber mods/changes or additions. Thanks for your help.

    Best manual i have ever seen is:

    Technical Manual, Builder's Guide, AR-15/M-16 Rifle. It a copy of the Armorers manual, but larger pages, detailed views and precise instructions. Put together by Randy Duckett, who used to sell them from a home buisiness (i think), i think Mr. Duckett has passed on so the books are getting hard to find. I found some for sale couple of weeks back at a fly fishing web site. they run 35 bucks plus shipping. best and last AR manual you would ever need.

    here is a link to the place i found them https://www.flyshack.com/DisplayItem.aspx?ItemID=106076

    Go join ar15.com and get a membership. Way better than a book or two

    Grab a screwdriver, a cutoff torch, a pipe wrench, some silly putty, a little bailing wire and a gallon of akumputty and you'll have an AR together in no time.

    arf.com is a joke, be careful what you say, the mods are very fast on the ban button
