World of Guns: Gun Disassembly

My favorite gun app is, without a doubt, Gun Disassembly 2 (read my full review here). For those of you who have not heard of it before, the app lets you explore and disassemble/reassemble a wide range of firearms. It has everything from the Ruger LCR to the M134D ‘Minigun’ and even a few WWII field artillery guns. The models are accurate and the gun can be fired to see how all the moving parts work. X-Ray/Cutaway modes allow you to see how the gas systems and trigger mechanisms function. It is the only app I use on all mobile devices: my Macbook Air, Android phone and my iPad. Each time I play it I learn a lot. I have even used it to figure out how to fit some old mil-surplus guns I own.
