Check out "The AR-15 Complete Owner's Guide," by Walt Kuleck and Scott Duff


They have several other AR books for sale at that site, as well.

"Black Magic" is a great read.  It's sitting on my night stand now.

Not technical but Gilbert Suarez's book "The Tactical Rifle" is a good read.

The Kuleck and Duff book is a very well-done reference.  I wish all gun books were as good.  It was also inexpensive, with my club discount it was around $12-15.

In addition to the fine selection shared by all above - one I don't see mentioned here is the Colt M16A1 Rifle Armorer/Depot Maintainance and Repair Manual.

Bear in mind that this is for the older verion of AR15/16 rifles (revised January 1980) but a good reference.  You can find them for a song at gun shows.
