...and the Garand was designed by a Canadian.
Who cares as long as it works and isn't descended from a Chauchaut(sp)

The AR owes its clamshell receiver design to the FAL. The Kalashnikov has a knockoff of a Garand trigger.

The AR shares the direct gas impingement of the AG-42B, a Swedish weapon.

Did you know the toilet was made popular by a man named John Crapper?

Really, no shit.

The AR15 is the son of a French rifle

Ummm, without a receiver to catch it, wouldn't that system blow a lot of gas in the shooter's face?

Much worse than an AR with a can attached?
