[pic deleted] Wish I had this thing...It would be worth a fortune if only it was real. [edited to delete the nude girl that popped up where an M16 used to be]

I thought the first AR's had Mattel on their stocks. [:)]

Wow, I guess all those legends are true! "If it says Mattel, it's swell!" (Quote from Mattel advertising from the sixties.) Showing my age.

Sorry guys, this photo was sent to the U.S. Army Ordnance Museum last week and the director of the museum told us it's a fake. I asked goatboy to post the letter.

Several weeks ago our local Photoshop Pro's had fun with this topic. Only thing was you could see the color difference in the touchup. And the Mattel symbol was in the original RED. It looked great. [:D] Was that you that did that Ponyboy? I don't recall. You're bad, real bad. [}:)] This is a very good touchup, must have taken some time to do.

The stamping on the magazine well looks really good, but the stamping above the trigger looks bad.. too easy to spot a fake. If you coulda made it blend with the rest some of us woulda done a double take.

I don't know how you guys can read the serial number off that rifle. Your eyes must be better than mine.

Oohhh.. I thought he meant that Mattel made her nipple ring.

The girl is certainly nice looking. A little redness in the crotch area, though..
