AR10 made in 1955,   What they screwed up to make the M16

the AR-10 served as a basis for the further development of the much more successful AR-15 - M16 series rifles. Basically, earliest AR-15 prototypes were no more than a scaled-down AR-10. The AR-10 was intended for the US Army trials for a newbattle rifle, to replace the venerable M1 Garand.AR-10, with the first prototype built in 1955, came too late for these trials,and was too unconventional for conservative minds in the US Army, and consequently lost the trials to the T44 rifle, which was adopted in the 1957 as the M14. The AR-10 was ready for mass production by the 1960, but very few were made in USA. A manufacturing license had been sold to the Dutch company Artillerie Inrichtingen. Only Sudan and the Portugal apparently bought some AR-10 rifles for their military, and the production of the AR-10 had been ceased in the early or mid-1960s, with only about 10 000 military AR-10 being ever made.

AR10

Yeah, that is a good one. Armalite is producing the AR10 again, although I don't know how much it differs from the original.
