ARTICLE DOWNLOAD: PDF files a plenty!


UPDATED 01.01.19

NEW ARTICLES ADDED!

There's a lot of good information here. Not everything fits all that neatly under one of the headings on the left, but, well, there it is.

LEARN MORE ABOUT .PDF FILES BY CLICKING HERE.

PLEASE NOTE: There are some "restrictions" incorporated into some of these files that have been forced from misuse-abuse. People trying to sell them, reproduce them, and so on... As a result some might not be printable, and none are "stealable." I work hard on my publications and I at the least want to get credit, and respect, for them. Thanks.

Here's something I always wanted to do, and. well, I'm doing it. The reason I always wanted to do this is because I, what should I say, most often have my own ideas respecting article lengths, topics, and treatments. I've had a lot of ideas that never got published, or at least not in the way I imagined. Usually that's a space issue and, having been in the magazine business as an Editor In Chief at one time, I fully understand and appreciate that.

What you'll see here are materials that I don't have to edit for length or content.

Now, not all magazines or magazine editors are bad! Not nearly. I do a lot of work for GUNS Magazine. GUNS, in particular, is a good publication. I also work regularly for NRA Publications, and they are the very best.

AR15 ARTICLE TOPICS
AR15 CHAMBERS
AR15 MAGAZINES

By Glen Zediker. An overview of chambering terms and concerns for AR15 rifles. It's not in-depth but it is in-sight. Ha. It offers a thorough understanding of the important differences in chambering for competition as opposed to other firearms uses, and there's a llittle ditty contained that is MUST reading for anyone who fires factory ammunition in their AR15. It could save your rifle, and maybe your eyesight...


By Glen Zediker. This is as important a part as exists on your AR15, and way on too many folks don't know how they work, and mostly why they sometimes don't. This material gives a good overview of identifying function problems and fixing them. New follower designs, springs, and recommendations are discussed. Folks, there may be pliers involved and, yes, it's a good article if it gives a folk something to do.
AR15 TRIGGERS
AR15 SPRINGS

By Glen Zediker. A lot has changed since the original MKII, but then some things really haven't. There are new triggers on the market and this article will run down what they are and what I think of them. Drop-ins, pins, and lock-time get their spaces too.


By Glen Zediker. Speakng of important parts, a daggone AR15 pretty much runs on springs, and has about the biggest single gun spring on the planet. This is good reading and please do so before wasting your money on any extractor or ejector fixes that won't really fix the problem.

AR15 MAINTENANCE, ONE
AR15 MAINTENANCE, TWO
By Glen Zediker. There are three articles on this topic that are separated into barrel cleaning, cleaning and lubrication of the rest of the rifle, and a full component on how to run an AR15 as well as store it unharmed.

AR15 MAINTENANCE, THREE
AR-22s


By Glen Zediker. It can be a rimfire, and here's how to make it work as such without getting all angry and disappointed.


HANDLOADING, OTHERS
PORTABLE LOADING
INCREMENTAL LOAD WORK UP

By Glen Zediker. Folks who read Handloading For Competition know most of this material, but here it is encapsulated for those who want. It's the run down on how to load at the range, on the spot, and radically improve your success in working up an ammo recipe.

FLAT-BASE BULLETS?

M14 MAINTENANCE, One
FLAT BASE ARTICLE

Here's a question, and an answer! Considered by many, me included, to be the ultimate in accuracy, this article explains all about why, and why not...

Good stuff.


Folks, some say no one is interested anymore, but here they are anyhow. I at one time did a whole lot of talking about these rifles and it never got said the way it was supposed to have, thanks to editors. Here is a start on a three part series. These are small downloads and sans-photos to save space. There are applications, I think, for the contents of these articles to several firearms, not just M14s.

For Garand shooters, most of it will work for you too!

M14 MAINTENANCE, Two
M14 MAINTENANCE, Three
By Glen Zediker. There are three articles on this topic that are separated into barrel cleaning, cleaning and lubrication of the rest of the rifle, and a full component on how to run an AR15 “dry” as well as store it unharmed.
