In this first part of a special TAB episode examining the history of the ArmaLite AR-10 Vic discusses the early origins, history and development of the now legendary 7.62x51mm rifle.
At the heart of this episode is a remastered version (certainly the best currently available online) of the c.1958 ArmaLite/Fairchild promotional film that features Eugene Stoner and shows many of the early 'Hollywood' ArmaLites in action!
The first part of this special documentary concludes with Vic examining a Hollywood-made AR-10B (the last iteration of the US-made AR-10s).
In part two of the episode includes an overview of almost every Artillerie Inrichtingen (A.I.)-made model of AR-10 including the Sudanese, Cuban and Portuguese models!
