Selling Dutch Armalite AR-10 manual, Portugese language!

He guys, I am selling on Ebay a genuine copy of a Dutch AR10 manual. It is however in the Portugese language.
However, it is not for the so-called 'Portugal' AR10 model.

Look at https://www.ebay.com/itm/30302119143...84.m1555.l2649

or search for these words: "Dutch Armalite AR-10 Rifle Manual, Portugal stoner ar10 netherlands m16 handbook"

I do not have this one. . .

Translation not necessary as there are scans of the English version of this manual available.

From a distance the gun looks like a Sudanese, but it is not. These are the differences:

1) has a flash hider like a Portuguese but with no bayonet lug
2) front sight base is from a casting with fewer sharp corners than Sudanese
3) sight wheel has digits rather than arabic characters
4) reinforced charging handle

Technically the gun is an early Transitional or Dutch trials model.
Paco used to have one of these.

The nice thing about knowing Spanish is I can understand about 70-80% of what I can see in the pictured pages.

This is a very early type of AR-10. It is not the Sudan version.
As far as I know there were about 5-6 different AR-10 manuals, and this is the 2nd type.
This specific version was printed in English, German, Italian, Spanish and Portugese language. I've never seen one in Dutch or French language.

Here's another pic from the manual (unfortunately it is not possible for me to post higher quality pics).

If you check this link: http://www.ar10.nl/Files/Manuals/Por...book/index.htm you will see that the rifle in the manual actually has serial number 00001. So they made the manual with the drawings / pictures of their earliest model.

That manual is different from the one mentioned in the OP. Later model AR10.
