The Black Rifle: M16 Retrospective
Currently in its second printing, The Black Rifle is the definitive resource on the history of the AR-15/M16; what it is, what it isn't, where it came from and why. This enhanced second printing was created using an enhanced grade of materials, and aside from the invaluable content, is a work of art. It currently covers up to the M16A2.
R. Blake Stevens is the founder and President of Collector Grade Publications Incorporated, and to date the author of eight published books on modern military small arms. Edward C. Ezell, Ph.D., is the Curator/Supervisor of the Division of Armed Forces History, National Museum of American history, Smithsonian Institution, Washington D.C. As well as contributing to a number of prestigious periodicals, Dr. Ezell is the current editor of perhaps the world's most famous gun book, Small Arms of the World.
