I could very easily be wrong, but I BELIEVE the Dutch bought some of the Armalite AR-10 rifles. This MIGHT be a setup for one of those, instead of the AR-15.

In any case something I'VE never seen before.

Very Nice.

The Dutch manufactured the AR10-7.62mm for a Sudanese military contract, can't remember the year. I aquired a surplus ARIO in England in the good old days when we could have such things over there. I don't recall a hole in the carry handle to mount a scope. In fact I drilled a hole in mine and reduced the length of the charging handle to accomodate a mount. --Don't know, sorry, never seen one like that. Probably worth a bit to a collector.
