Best Book on M1 Garand

Hi, what is the single best book on the M1 Garand? (I'm thinking disassembly, assembly, and accurizing most of all, not so much history of development or battle use.)

For pure disassemble-reassembly and National Match upgrades, the best book ever done is Jerry Kuhnhausen's "The US Gas Operated Service Rifles M1 and M14: A Shop Manual".

This one has it ALL.

Ditto the Kuhnhausen manual.... Everything you COULD ever want to know about dis-assembly, troubleshooting, gunsmithing, and match conditioning of the M1 & M14 types.

Best to all,
