I found an early Armalalight as in A DIVISION OF FAIRCHILD AIRCRAFT AR-10 promotional video, note how the early rifles had SWITCHES for bolt releases, the first trigger components were CAST, Roll pins were used, the chargeing handle was on top, and the magazines were supposed to be DISPOSABAL, and it completely blows away the reliability myth, and what happened to the BELT FED OPTION!!!!?....

Yeah, I love that. Talk about over-the-top fun! He storms ashore, a one man army, firing his AR10 from the hip, annihilating all in his path! LOL

I have a higher quality version of that video, as well as two others (AR10 and M16 operation), that were around here in 2002.

If anyone wants to host all three, let me know. The total is about 106 mb.

Look at the list "The following People should be killed" on the bottom right. That's all it takes to get you a visit from batfeces.

It's wonderful to see these films of a bygone era. The advertising was definitely '60ish and yet it remains visionary to this day. Hats off to you Eugene Stoner.

And it’s down in the Bogside, that’s where I long to be,
Lying in the dark with a Provo company,
A comrade on me left and another on me right
And a clip of ammunition for my little Armalite

I was stopped by a soldier, said he, You are a swine’,
He beat me with his baton and he kicked me in the groin,
I bowed and I scraped, sure me manners were polite
But all the time I’m thinking of me little Armalite

And it’s down in Crossmaglen, sure that’s where I long to be,
Lying in the dark with a Provo company,
A comrade on me left and another on me right
And a clip of ammunition for my little Armalite

Sure a brave RUC man came up into our street
Six hundred British soldiers were gathered round his feet
‘Come out, ye cowardly Fenians’, said he, ‘come out and fight’.
But he cried, ‘I’m only joking’, when he heard the Armalite

Sure it’s down in Kilwilkie, that’s where I long to be,
Lying in the dark with a Provo company,
A comrade on me left and another on me right
And a clip of ammunition for my little Armalite

Sure, the army came to visit me, ‘twas in the early hours,
With Saladins and Saracens and Ferret armoured cars
They thought they had me cornered, but I gave them all a fright
With the armour piercing bullets of my little Armalite

And it’s down in the Falls Road, that’s where I long to be,
Lying in the dark with a Provo company,
A comrade on me left and another on me right
And a clip of ammunition for my little Armalite

When Tuzo came to Belfast, he said, ‘The battle’s won’,
Said General Ford, ‘We’re winning sir, we have them on the run’.
But corporals and privates on patrol at night,
Said, ‘Send for reinforcements, it’s the bloody Armalite

And it’s up in Ballymurphy, that’s where I long to be,
Lying in the dark with a Provo company,
A comrade on me left and another on me right
And a clip of ammunition for my little Armalite

No way! Now that's what I call a "peace dividend", selling cool videos for civilian consumption.
