First, the printing of the pictures is sometimes distorted, as if the photo was placed on a rubber sheet and then stretched out. This doesn't occur often but I wouldn't expect it to occur at all in a costly book.
Second, the editing is poor. Sometimes pictures of one type of weapon are labeled with captions that are incorrect. It seems like the photos were accidentally switched at some point and no one caught it.
Finally, some of the weapons are only presented as "cutaways." If I wanted pictures of the interior of weapons I would refer to the Numerich gun parts catalog, or to some of my books which are particularly concerned with gun repair and show exploded diagrams. This may be a personal quirk but it irritated me.
You can do better for the amount of money this book costs.
