The green ones - after repairs, red oxide primer. Then after 4 tries got the color matched to original @ the NCS paint store.
Acrylic enamel Spectramaster Color Atlas
Color: Atlas Yellow Green ---------------whatever all that means?
The paint job was too glossy for my taste, so I also applied satin poly to tone them down & that suited me.

Around 6K AR10s were produced @ Hembrug under license. Are they copies?
All of the production AR15s up through mid/late 60s were made under the auspices of Colt. Are they copies?
My recollection is the only guns that can be attributed to Armalite are the prototypes.
So correct me if I'm wrong here, 3018 -------------------------

Is this Dutch AR10 a genuine Armalite or a copy? Is a Howa AR180 a copy? Is a Sterling AR180 a copy? If Armalite subcontracts their lowers then are those guns copys?

Well now FALonious, if you think this awful idiocy is all that great, I took the bait; @ least for a while!

Colt

The original 01s I saw & played with were Colt 100%.
The green bayonets were marked Armalite .
I could only afford a 614 back then.
