    I stumbled across this and thought that I would share it with NWFA. It's a link to any gun owners manual that you could want for free. They are in PDF file form just find the gun that you need a manual for and then click on the PDF file link. Sometime you may need to wait for a minute or so depending on the size of the manual.

    RAD!

    It made me think of a similar page I stumbled across a while back with FREE downloads of military manuals... all branches. Including, but not limited to, military weapons manuals like grenade launchers, mortars, machine guns, etc.

    http://stevespages.com/page7c.htm

    Maybe someone out there in NWFA land might find this useful...

    Excellent site. :thumbup:Used it today for my rifle that didn't have the instruction book.

    This should be bumped regularly for all the new members.

    I've found a lot of site like this through " Google " and I'm glad that it's helpful.

    I have a 59 meg file with thousands of factory manuals in PDF format if someone knows a good place to post it to that doesn't require them members to sign up to download it.

    you posted this a while ago so i don't know if it still matters, but rapidshare is a fantastic place to upload files.

    Use with caution Norton claims the site has confirmed viruses and trojans.

    If you want to download all the files use the following utility:

    http://www.httrack.com/page/2/en/index.html

    The service that hosts the website doesn't have a ton of bandwidth so this takes awhile. Like that old commercial: set it and forget it. :D

    Start this before you go to the range and it’ll have downloaded everything by the time you return (to a folder on your C: drive called My Web Sites). They have versions for Windows, Unix, Linux, Mac, etc. so everyone should be covered.
