Gary Paul Johnston and Thomas Nelson’s The World’s Assault Rifles is always one of the first books we turn to for information on automatic rifles. At 1200+ pages, it’s a huge tome and a massive amount of research went into it. Mr Nelson previously published two volumes on submachine guns and a book on assault rifles many years ago, but this current edition was heavily updated and republished just two years ago.
The book is available in hardcover for us reference types and also as a Kindle edition for the tech-savvy on-the-go gun nut. Take your pick from Amazon:
At Forgotten Weapons I think the most interesting guns out there are the most obscure ones. I try to search out experimental and prototype weapons and show you how they work, in addition to more conventional guns that you may not have heard of before. You’re much more likely to find a video on the Cei Rigotti or Webley-Fosbery here than an AR or Glock. So, do you want to learn about something new today? Then stick around!
