    Sam Pikula's book is the only one ever written exclusively about the AR-10 rifle. I have a copy I bought for about $40. I turned down another copy a few years later for about the same cost.
    He had it self published and printed in Lithuania. It is long out of print. I should have bought that 2nd copy because one sold on Ebay for over $400 two weeks ago.


    We lost touch a few years back, but last time I corresponded with Sam, he was retired from Special Forces and was working private security in Iraq. He's a nice gentleman.
    I have thought ocassionally of writing a book about the AR-10 myself. At least there aren't already a ton of books on the subject.

    If I remember correctly, Sam was one of a group of senior US and UK semi-retired professional soldiers who were contracted with by Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia when they regained their independence after the collapse of the USSR. They were tasked with forming the Baltic States' armed forces into professional organizations on the lines of those in NATO states. I am sure that Uncle Sugar actually paid for their services, either directly or indirectly.
