AR-15 and other small arms

Eugene Morrison Stoner (November 22, 1922 April 24, 1997) was an American firearms designer who is most associated with the development of the AR-15 rifle that was adopted by the US military as the M16. He is regarded by some historians as one of the most successful firearms designers of the 20th century. Early life

Stoner attended high school in Long Beach and upon graduating worked for the Vega Aircraft Company installing armament. During World War II, he enlisted for Aviation Ordnance in the U.S. Marine Corps and served in the South Pacific and northern China. He is survived by his son Quincy and grandson Darrell. [1]

Engineer

In late 1945 Stoner began working in the machine shop for Whittaker, an aircraft equipment company, and ultimately became a Design Engineer. In 1954 he came to work as chief engineer for ArmaLite, a division of Fairchild Engine & Airplane Corporation. While at ArmaLite, he designed a series of prototype small arms, including the AR-3, AR-9, AR-11, AR-12, none of which saw significant production. Their only real success during this period was the AR-5 survival rifle, which was adopted by the United States Air Force. [1]

In 1955, Stoner completed initial design work on the revolutionary AR-10, a lightweight (7.25 lbs.) selective-fire infantry rifle in 7.62×51mm NATO caliber. The AR-10 was submitted for rifle evaluation trials to the US Army's Aberdeen Proving Ground late in 1956. In comparison with competing rifle designs previously submitted for evaluation, the AR-10 was smaller, easier to fire in automatic, and much lighter. However it arrived very late in the testing cycle, and the army rejected the AR-10 in favor of the more conventional T44, which became the M14. The AR-10's design was later licensed to the Dutch firm of Artillerie Inrichtingen, who produced the AR-10 until 1960 for sale to various military forces. [2]

The AR-15 rifle, derived from Stoner's original design.

At the request of the U.S. military, Stoner's chief assistant, Robert Fremont and Jim Sullivan designed the AR-15 from the basic AR-10 model, scaling it down to fire the small-caliber .223 Remington cartridge, slightly enlarged to meet the minimum Army penetration requirements. The AR-15 was later adopted by United States military forces as the M16 rifle. [2][3]

After ArmaLite sold the rights to the AR-15 to Colt, Stoner turned his attention to the AR-16 design. This was another advanced 7.62 mm rifle but used a more conventional piston and a number of stamped parts to reduce cost. This weapon saw only prototype development but adaptation to .223 resulted in the somewhat successful and often imitated Armalite AR-18. [2]

Stoner left ArmaLite in 1961 to serve as a consultant for Colt. He eventually accepted a position with Cadillac Gage where he designed the Stoner 63 Weapons System. [2] This was a modular weapons system that could be reconfigured to be a standard automatic rifle, a light machine gun, a medium machine gun, or a solenoid-fired fixed machine gun. The Stoner Weapons System used a piston-operated gas impingement system. Once again, Robert Fremont and Jim Sullivan took a Stoner rifle and redesigned it for the .223 Remington cartridge, to create the Stoner 63 Weapons System. [4]

Stoner worked for TRW by designing the TRW 6425 25 mm Bushmaster auto cannon, which was later manufactured by Oerlikon as the KBA. [1]

He co-founded ARES Incorporated of Port Clinton, Ohio, in 1972, but left the company in 1989, after designing the Ares Light Machine Gun, sometimes known as the Stoner 86. It was an evolved version of the Stoner 63. At Ares, he also designed the Future Assault Rifle Concept (FARC). [1]

In 1990, he joined Knight's Armament Company (KAC) to create the Stoner Rifle-25 (SR-25), which currently sees military service as the United States Navy Mark 11 Mod 0 Sniper Weapon System. While at KAC, he also worked on yet another version of the Stoner Weapons System, called the Stoner 96. Among his last designs were the SR-50 rifle and the Colt 2000. [5]

Eugene Stoner, 74, Designer Of M-16 Rifle and Other Arms

By HOLCOMB B. NOBLEAPRIL 27, 1997

Eugene M. Stoner, who developed America's classic assault rifle, the M-16, while tinkering at night in his garage, died on Thursday at his home in Palm City, Fla. He was 74.

The cause of death was cancer, a spokesman for the family said.

While he had no formal engineering education, Mr. Stoner was widely regarded as one of the world's foremost designers of and experts on small arms. His M-16 has been standard issue for the United States armed forces since 1963, and he designed a wide range of weapons of various types and caliber as well.

He held some 100 patents on his inventions, and was a co-founder of Ares Inc., a weapons research and development company based in Port Clinton, Ohio. He was the company's chairman until he sold his interest 10 years ago and moved to Florida. There he continued working on small-arms design and development at the Knight Manufacturing Company, completing a longer-range, .50-caliber semiautomatic rifle within the last few months.

His role in the development of the M-16 was similar to that of Mikhail Kalashnikov in designing the Soviet counterpart, the AK-47. Mr. Kalashnikov also had no training when he pieced together gun parts to build a first version.

The two inventors of the world's leading small, rapid-fire assault weapons, met at conferences, became friends and compared notes.

But Mr. Stoner said that while the AK-47 was less complicated and tended to break down less often, the M-16 was lighter and fired more accurately. Mr. Kalashnikov said of his initial work on the weapon in 1947, ''When I was lying wounded during the war, I heard the other soldiers complaining about how the German weapons were better than ours,'' he said. ''So I was determined to invent something for the ordinary soldier -- a weapon that would be simple, tough and better than any other in the world.''

Their life styles were not comparable. Mr. Stoner's inventions made him a millionaire. He was also a pilot with his own plane. Mr. Kalashnikov, a tiny white-haired man three years Mr.

Stoner's senior lived on a state pension in a small apartment east of Moscow. ''Stoner has his own aircraft.'' he once said, ''I can't even afford my own plane ticket.''

Colleagues of Mr. Stoner said he began his work in the early 1950's because military studies showed that soldiers in World War II and Korea, under the pressure of combat, were not pulling the trigger on the weapons. So Mr. Stoner tried to develop a rifle that would fire repeatedly with a single pull of the trigger.

Eugene Morrison Stoner was born in Gasport, Ind., on Nov. 22, 1922, the only child of Lloyd and Britannia Morrison Stoner. He moved to Long Beach, Calif., where he graduated from a technical high school. After the Depression there was not enough money in the family for him to attend college, and he went to work in 1939 for Vega Aircraft, which later became part of the Lockheed Corporation. He served in the Marine Corps in World War II in the South Pacific and northern China. After the war, he was employed by the Fairchild Engine and Airplane Corporation.

Hearing about his work, Army experts sought out Mr. Stoner in the mid-1950's to help develop automatic rifles using smaller, faster bullets. Later, in the early 1960's he invented what came to be known as the Stoner 63, an automatic weapon using interchangeable parts that could be converted from a light rifle into a rapid-firing gun to conserve ammunition.

Mr. Stoner is survived by his wife, Barbara Hitt Stoner, whom he married in 1965; his first wife, Jean Stoner Mahony of Newport Beach, Calif., from whom he was divorced in 1962; four children from his first marriage, Patricia Magee of Alpine, Wyo., Susan Kleinpell of Bloomfield Hills, Mich., Deirdre Elmore of Tiburon, Calif., and Michael, of Minneapolis, seven grandchildren and four great-grandchildren

When doing research on the origins on the M16 rifle, we are often told the story of General Curtis LeMay first approaching Eugene Stoner about developing a new rifle. The official story goes that Stoner developed the AR-10 (the first 7.62N version) in the mid-1950’s as a contender for Project SALVO (established in 1948). Later on, LeMay requested that the AR-10 be trimmed down to accept a modified .222 caliber round and Stoner obliged. The rifle was purchased by the .gov in 1961 and the rest is history.

Or is it?

Before getting into the fine details let us first delve into the combat results reported by Project AGILE (an ARPA program. ARPA later became DARPA). William Godel, one of the directors of Project AGILE sent (10) 5.56 M16 prototypes to South Vietnam to test their combat efficiency. The results were positively overwhelming. Here is a snippet of part of the report, “Test of ArmaLite Rifle: AR-15” (full unclassified report here)

  • c. Range of engagement: 30-100 meters

  • d. Type wounds:

1.

Back wound, which caused the thoracic cavity to explode.

2.

Stomach wound, which caused the abdominal cavity to

explode.

3.

Buttock wound, which destroyed all tissue of both

buttocks.

4.

Chest wound from right to left, destroyed the thoracic

cavity.

5.

Heel wound, the projectile entered the bottom of the

right foot causing the leg to split from the foot to the hip. These deaths were inflicted by the AR-15 and all were instantaneous except the buttock wound. He lived approximately five minutes. Of course, these wounding characteristics did not seem to directly translate later on when the M16 became a mass-issue rifle. Why not?

Later on, we (the American public and the world) were told that these so-called, ‘explosive’ wounds were due to Project AGILE rifles having a 1/14” twist barrel and 1/12” barrels when they were issued. Let’s suppose for just a minute that the government line is 100% true; why would they not employ the incredibly effective 1/14” twist barrels if they were so devastating?

The fact is that the classified version of the ARPA report, “Test of ArmaLite Rifle: AR-15” was never declassified; only a scrubbed and polished piece of propaganda was released. Furthermore, the actual diagramed wound tracks were not ‘declassified’ until nearly 20 years later in 1980 (the

real diagramed wound tracks are and continue to be Top Secret//Eyes Only).

The reason why the original ARPA remains classified is because the subjects the prototype rifles were used against were not VNA or VC troops but of another biological organism completely.

On July 7, 1947 an extraterrestrial craft crash landed on a ranch near Roswell, New Mexico. The Air Force, in collusion with greater government forces, quickly covered up the incident. The original story was that of a weather balloon. Many years later the government would recant with another cover story to cover their cover story: Project MOGUL.

The bodies and materiel from the crash were transported to a secret facility underneath Wright- Patterson

The bodies and materiel from the crash were transported to a secret facility underneath Wright- Patterson air force base known as Hangar-18. The metals and alloys the flying saucer and ET armored suits utilized baffled scientists. There were seemingly impervious to heat and impact. Just a few short months later Project SALVO was established to solve the problem. Materials Science Engineers discovered that a higher velocity, smaller caliber, conventional round could pierce the armor that appeared to be invulnerable against the larger, slower rounds in current use.

It was only after this revelation that General LeMay approached Eugene Stoner about development of the 5.56mm. LeMay knew he could trust him because several years prior, Stoner himself had been read into Project SALVO to reverse-engineer some of the extraterrestrial small- arms technology.

The USSR had similar ongoing programs. In Tunguska on June 30, 1908 an extraterrestrial spacecraft crashed.

The USSR had similar ongoing programs. In Tunguska on June 30, 1908 an extraterrestrial spacecraft crashed. Officially called a meteor strike, details remained in the dark murk until after the fall of the iron curtain. Though it is widely stated that the 5.45x39mm round was developed in reaction to the American 5.56mm cartridge, the truth is much simpler: The Russians, under the guidance of a scientist named M. Sabelnikova, also found that a smaller caliber, higher velocity projectile had the ability to penetrate the hard armor of extraterrestrial exoskeletons where traditional projectiles failed.

Though the gas action of the M16- series is often erroneously called, ‘direct gas impingement’ thispatent #2,951,424 Stoner clearly states: This invention is a true expanding gas system instead of the conventional impinging gas system What the unclassified patent does not state is that the idea came not from Stoner himself but him profiteering from his reverse-engineering work done during Project SALVO. The phrase, “This feels like a space rifle!” is often attributed to Vietnam veterans upon their first handling of an M16-series rifle. High sources state that the phrase was actually first uttered ironically by then-Colonel René Studler, U.S. Army Ordnance's Chief of Small Arms Research and Development, the first time he picked up an M16. That story spread through Project SALVO and later through Project AGILE as a running gag.

The M16 was incredibly unique because it was made of such lightweight materials. With an

aluminum receiver and synthetic furniture it was a significant deviation from traditional firearms of the time with wooden stocks and steel receivers. At one point, at the bequest of George Sullivan, an AR variant was released with a barrel made of, ‘Sullaloy’, a hardened aluminum. Barrels were also produced with bodies almost entirely constructed of aluminum with only a thin steel liner in the bore. Though officially we are told these were failures due to barrel ruptures, they continue to be manufactured by Diemaco, Colt Defense, and FN strictly for DARPA and CIA use.

Why the focus on using non-steel materials? To find a firm answer all we need to do is have a look at the details of Project JUMP-ROOM (‘J-R’ for short or simply, ‘Junior’ to those in the program). Project JUMP-ROOM has its roots within the OSS (precursor to the CIA) and the smuggling of top scientists and technology out of Germany towards the end of WWII. The

Germans developed, ‘Instant Molecular Transportation’ (IMT) in 1944, too late to make a

difference in the outcome of the war. With the help of physicists spirited out of the war zone,

ARPA and CIA assets perfected the technology. J-R was housed in plain sight, in a laboratory in El Segundo, California.

Several high ranking CIA officials have admitted to their collusion and participation in J-R including Andrew D. Basiago, Arthur Neumann, William B. Stillings, and Bernard Mendez. When early Chrononauts first began live-teleportation, they found that any large quantity of steel reacted violently within the folded space-time of the IMT machinery. Further experimentation found aluminum, lead, and copper to be almost non-reactive and smaller pieces of steel were deemed a controlled risk.

When Chrononauts part of the J-R program used the IMT machine to become the first men to leave the Earth (in 195217 years before the much vaunted moon mission) and arrive on Mars,

In order to hide the massive casualties the United States was suffering against the Martian species, several terrestrial wars were started. It is estimated by DARPA that 25% of the official

casualties of the Korean War actually died on Mars and a whopping 65% of KIA’s from

Vietnam. The explosive wounding results of the 5.56mm as reported by Project AGILE were actually references to terminal effects on Martian fighters, not VC or NVA.

It wasn’t until the combination of Sullaloy-barrels and M-193 5.56mm that the tide began to turn in the bloodied conflict. On November 21, 1963, then-President John Kennedy told his panel of advisors he was going to disclose details of Project JUMP-ROOM and the Martian conflict to a news agency. The next day he was exiled to a CIA outpost on Mars and holographic technology (the same used by the government during the 9/11 attacks) was used to project the false image that he was assassinated the next day in Dallas, Texas.

An armistice was signed between the Martians and the government of the United States on August 1, 1973 (it is not a coincidence that the US left Vietnam just a couple short weeks later).

When the Martians began a new uprising in the year 2000, the CIA and DARPA knew that the dismal padded casualty numbers from MOOTW (Military Operations Other Than War) would not begin to explain the number of actual casualties they would have on hand. In conspiracy with the Israelis, Reptilians, and the Free-Masons, DARPA staged the 9/11 attacks with moon-based energy weapons and holographic technologythus justifying a new war and an easy way to hide casualties in the new Martian conflict.

Due to the advent of modern and reliable electronic optics and white lights, more metal had to be removed from the M16-series to accommodate them. Although aluminum appeared to be non- reactive during IMT transport researchers found that less metal, reactive or not, was better. Bushmaster, responding to a DARPA request, made one of the first polymer lower receivers for the AR/M16. They later responded with carbon fiber upper receivers and other companies joined in. Soon, even synthetic fire control groups and vastly lightened bolt carrier groups were

manufactured (the latter justified as, ‘for competition use’).

Due to the advent of modern and reliable electronic optics and white lights, more metal had

In the future, we can expect and anticipate smaller calibers with even higher velocities (such as

the FN 5.7) as Martian armor technology improves. Likewise, we will soon see rifles and pistols with more and more synthetic, non-metal materials used in construction to ensure reliable IMT teleportation.

TL;DR:

-Neither the 5.56mm nor the 5.45x39mm are phenomenal performers against humans because they were developed to fight extraterrestrials. -The M16, reverse-engineered alien technology itself, is mostly aluminum and synthetic in order to ease transportation to the Martian surface. -As a result of the both of the above, no human in possession of an AR/M16-series rifle has ever been abducted by extraterrestrials

-All American conflicts and incursions since WWII have been started as cover-up operations for Martian conflicts.
