    As a denizen of the Revolver Forum, 642 Club, my knowledge of AR and AK platforms is nil, but I am interested in learning. (Not to imply that other members of the Forum or Club are as uninformed, but I suspect I am not alone.)

    A sticky in the Rifle Forum describing the anatomy and physiology and use of those platforms would be a great addition.

    If the members and moderators do not feel that is a worthwhile use of space and time, are there any suggestions for other resources?

    Thanks
    David

    while a thread would certainly help peoples understanding of these systems.

    if we make them for AR and AK we would need to make them for any contemporary rifles, SKS & VZ58 , FAL, CETME, AR-18 etc. there would just be alot of threads ( or one mega thread) about alot of info readily available online

    if some one, well versed in all thier operation, who is willing to post explanations and pictures for a variety of common rifle wanted to cover them, and then had approval to create a LOCKED sticky or a separate web page of there own. we wouldn't have any new knowledge that isnt on the web but atleast something resembling a one stop shop.

    Manufacturers print owner's manuals, many of them available for free as PDFs, and others just for the asking. The ARs I have came with the military manual, which is plenty good. Beyond that, it's a matter of range time and some training. Many books have been written on the subject as well.

    David, what, specifically, are you looking for? Loading/unloading, reloads, charging, sighting, etc?

    The information is definitely out there, but I don't think I've seen it in just one place before. It's not a bad idea really, maybe I'll work something up for my site.

    If you are interested in just the AR, Viking Tactics sells two excellent books on the use of the AR platform.

    Thanks guys.

    I am wanting to expand my knowledge and decide if I want to buy a semi-automatic rifle.

    My affinity is for revolvers and levers. Smiths and Marlins.

    But I want to at least peek over the hill at the other areas.

    I have a couple of semi-auto pistols, but do not enjoy shooting them like I do the revolvers.

    I suspect the semi-auto rifles will also be a distant second in enjoyment; but if I were ever to really need more capacity, ...

    Revolvers and levers and side by sides are plenty for personal defense; but defense of liberty might need more.

    On 9/11 as we remember the threats, it would be prudent to be able to help if the need arises.
