Over the last few weeks I have been snatching up some rare photos from the history of the AR15/M16 here and there. I was waiting until I had enough to share into a group. All or most of these will come up again in some future articles.
This first photo is from the ex-owner of AR15.com and now Brownells made man. Ed Sr. Holding an M16 with a first gen night vision optic with IR lamp.
Below is a gentleman shooting the rare Colt M16 sniper variant with ARTII optic.
