Book and dust look new. Dust in mylar protective cover. ""Grunt" is an outstanding reference book. The author has gone to exhaustive lengths to create a comprehensive catalog of the uniforms, equipment, weapons, and daily life of the U.S. Infantry during the Vietnam War. This book is packed with excellent close-up photographs of nearly every item used by American foot soldiers during the conflict, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant. The text and photo captions are extremely informative." Reviewer. "This is an amazing compilation! One fantastic reference work! Its covers literally everything, just as it says it does. I suppose that my one criticism is the fact that it deals almost entirely with the US Army and all of its gear, equipment and life of an Army grunt in Nam" Reviewer.

2 Bill, Pryor Mt. Triggers, plain, double, simple set, bouble set, single set
Author 1991 PhotoCopy Only; Photocopy Manila Folder or Binder Very Good with no dust jacket 
Photocopy only of rare booklet in a manila folder on building triggers with measurements and what appears to be exact scaled diagrams for building various triggers. These schematics appear to be for early flintlock and percussion type rifles. There is a page showing the various weapons that used set triggers including: Crossbow, Wheellock, Jaeger, Long Rifle including Kentucky, Plains Rifle, and Sporting Rifle. The specific schematics that has the measurements do not name the rifle, but measurements are given for the Single Set Trigger, the Double Set trigger, and illustrations of Double Trigger, Single set, and Compound Single Set. There is a page dedicated to the Hartford Sharps 1875 Sporting Rifle. The footnote at bottom of that page says "a later, very well made and designed set trigger, suitable for any black powder rifle with minor modifications". It is assumed that since many of the rifles made in the era of the rifles using these triggers may have been handmade thus fitting of the trigger sets were custom for many of the guns. This is a photocopy Only.; Illustrated; 4to 11" - 13" tall; PDF
