I did not know about this rifle.

It reminds me of a Mini-14.

Blake Stevens' book about the M-14 has it in it.

Looks more like an M1 Carbine to me personally.  Hell it mentions it uses the M2 carbine gas system and that's just the automatic version of the M1.

I have never seen that website before.

I can foresee my entire weekend already... Mow lawn, drink scotch and smoke a cigar while I read that entire damn website.  Looks right up my alley.

What was the other designs to take on the AR15 back then?

Neat little gun, 5 1/2 lbs.

AR-18 was one.  Same caliber as the AR15/M16.

The FAL was in trials against the M14 prototype, not the AR15.

That does look like a Mini.

Then again, I have always thought the M1/M2 carbine and the Mini looked quite similar.

Looks like a really fun rifle to shoot. Guts definitely look like the M1 Carbine.
