Giveaway: Gun Digest Book of Exploded Gun Drawings

** The giveaway has ended, but be sure to check the Inside Gun Digest Books blog often for more chances to win great Gun Digest books.**

Sometimes a simple drawing showing the parts of a gun can be incredibly informative, indicating the exact placement and direction of insertion of parts with simple lines on paper. That’s what you get with the Gun Digest Book of Exploded Gun Drawings.

This collection of line drawings showing each piece of a disassembled gun is the perfect aid to anyone looking to identify and order replacement parts, or take a gun apart for cleaning and simple repair. Gun Digest Book of Exploded Gun Drawings presents line drawings of more than 1,000 disassembled guns, with parts identified by number and a key to those numbers.

In addition to the detailed, easy-to-understand drawings of rifles, shotguns and handguns of all types (single-shot, lever action, semi-automatic, bolt action, double, manually-operated repeater, slide action and revolvers), the book also features a resource section containing contact information for buying gun parts and supplies. This book is a must-have for gunsmiths, firearms collectors, shooters, hobbyists, and law enforcement officials – indeed, anyone who wants to be able to take apart a gun and put it back together.

    I have always been too afraid to try and disassemble any further than my knowledge level. Maybe I’ll win this book and expand that knowledge.

    As I am sure many others do I have collected loose copies of exploded diagrams but it sure would be nice to finally have them all in one bound version. I wanna win.

    Yes, I’ve taken a gun to a gunsmith — to get out a faulty laser guide rod that was blocking the normal takedown method from working. I’d like to win the book.

    Always managed to get them put back together if I took them apart. Only “problem” gun has been the Ruger .22 Target Pistol when I don’t pay enough attention !

    If I took it apart I can put it back together. But there are those rare occasions where an exploded drawing is extremely helpful to take it apart to begin with! Count me in!
