I know that we're all laughing, but where in the h__l does someone like this internet jockey come up with the "facts" that he's stating. Unfortunately, there are a lot of people out there who will believe his BS. I'm waiting for AOC to endorse this "history".
That nonsense about Mattel goes back forever. I actually had guys that were never in the military ask me if there were parts that were stamped Mattel. That is the 1st time I actually heard an EXPERT(lol) say that. I'm pissed cause I spent all that time cleaning the dam thing (not).
So that is where all of the expert politicians in Washington and elsewhere have gotten their information. That information should have never reached the public. It's much to informative for the average person to fully comprehend. I always wondered what the A.R. 15 stood for, now I know. Very informative and the photography was fantastic. I used one of those original M16's. I knew it had to be made by Mattel, because it was so fun to shoot and worked so flawlessly.
