Pretty cool. Anyone have one of these or know how much they'd be worth? Any idea how many were made?

Those were the developmental versions that later became the XM177 and CAR-15. Notice that some barrels are 16" while others are 10.5" and 11" with cut-down triangular handguards and collapsing A1 type buttstocks.

The strangest AR type rifle developed by Colt was a "bare-bones" Air Force survival rifle that broke down into pieces and stowed with two 20 round magazines in a rectangular bag that was meant to be stowed in the ejection seat. The "buttstock" simply slipped over the receiver extension and was not fixed. The flash hider looked something like a funnel. Very freaky.

You mean like this:



Something else I noticed in this book, on the original ones the FA position was straight up and the Semi position is all the way back, just the opposite of where they are now days.

Yeah! Exactly like that!

I too remember reading about a safety selector design change. I think that they changed the positions, because it was too easy to dislodge the safety from the safe position while crawling. I'll have to look that up tonight.

Does your book have any pictures of Colt's belt-fed squad-auto design?
