Giveaway: Win “Rimfire Rifles Assembly/Disassembly”

The Smith & Wesson M&P 15-22 is one of the most popular modern sporting rifles chambered in .22 Long Rifle

** 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.**

One of the interesting side effects of the modern sporting rifle phenomenon is the production of like models in rimfire calibers. These rifles, based on the AR-15, are very popular, and with rising costs in ammunition and production, the alternative of shooting rimfire ammunition through a largely similar (or otherwise identical in some cases) rifle for training purposes has great appeal.

One of many similar models from many companies, the Smith & Wesson M&P 15-22 is perhaps the best seller of them all and for good reason. It is lightweight, accurate enough for training, plinking and target shooting and has a very simple, solid method of operation. And, it happens to be just one of the many popular new models added to the hundreds of rimfire rifles already covered in the recently-revised Gun Digest Book of Rimfire Rifles Assembly/Disassembly.

This week, for all of you .22 rifle lovers out there, we’re giving away a copy of Gun Digest Book of Rimfire Rifles Assembly/Disassembly. To enter the random drawing, just post a comment below telling us about the most recent .22 rifle you’ve purchased. Or, as always, you can just say you’d like to win the book.

    Recently bought a used Remington 572 Fieldmaster pump .22. Used it once then after I took it apart to clean it does not work. When I pull trigger, no bang ! maybe this book can help me properly reassemble it the right way .

    My last .22 purchase was a Smith&Wesson model 22A semiautomatic pistol which I love by the way. It is the first brand new gun I have ever had.

    Most recent acquisition of a rimfire rifle was a Ithaca Model 72 Saddle Gun.

    I’ve used my trusty old (1980 edition I think) Gun Digest Books of Firearms Assembly/Disassembly many times over the years, but it is quite old and does not include many rimfire rifles. I’m often asked by friends and family to get into one or more of their guns for deep cleaning or repair. I have to rely on several different sources for exploded diagrams and assembly/disassembly guidance, as well as just plain old horse sense. However, firearms, as many mechanical things, don’t always come apart in what one might consider logical sequences. One mistake can be costly, in both time and broken/damaged/lost parts. Been extremely fortunate not to have lost or damaged any in over 40 years.

    Been eyeballing the later editions of these books for awhile now, but in most cases, it’s hard to tell just when they were published. Guess I’m going to have to break down and get them.

    Anyway, sure could use a free one.

      Hi ‘Papa,’
      Here’s the lineup of updated versions of the assembly/disassembly books, to help clarify publication dates:
      – The Rimfire Rifles and Revolvers assembly/disassembly books were newly revised last year (2011).
      – This year, the Semi-Auto Pistols book came out in June, and a revised Shotguns A/D will be out in October.
      – Next year, we’re scheduled to revise the Centerfire Rifles book, as well as Tactical Weapons.
      Good luck in the drawing, and thanks for reading the blog!

    The last .22 rifle I bought was a Remington Nylon 66 manufactured April 1971. I wasn’t even in the market for a .22 rifle, but rather had gone into a gun shop looking for a 1911 style .22 pistol, just pricing them. Then I saw it sitting in a circular rack on the sales floor and it was calling to me. I’m 60 years old and have never owned one. The moon & the stars were in perfect alignment that day and it was in such nice condition I just had to buy it. It even had a period 4x Universal scope mounted on it. It appears it was never fired much at all. Yay for me!!

    Bought a Ruger 10/22 about a month ago and had a friend change the stock to a Youth stock from Brownells. This is perfect for me as I am a short woman and even the compact stock was too large for my hands. The Youth stock is perfect.

    Let me first say: I have never found a .22 rifle that I did not like or could not love! I enjoy working on these firearms, and would love to win this book for future use. The last .22 rifle(s)that I purchased in a package deal: Remington Model 12, and a Ruger 10/22 Deluxe. In my opinion, the .22 is the greatest rifle ever invented!!!

    My last .22 purchase was Rugers SR-22. It was perfect out of the box and made a fine choice for introducing my Granddaughters to shooting sports. It has worked flawlessly and the girls are hooked! (Makes me so proud!) The assembley/disassembly book would be a perfect addition to to teach the girls proper care, post shooting, for their training!
