Wyant Lamont
Paperback: 150 pages
US Combat Bookshelf
Desert Publications, (1st printing 1969) – 1991?
Adapted from a translation of a Russian handbook
Usually pretty cheap at gun shows, worth buying to see some of the first information available about the Kalashnikov rifles
Few drawings, all crude copies from the original (field?) manual but effective. (all black & white)
A lot of good technical information and operational instructions
