TFB’s serial adventurer Claymore sent me this photo of the M16A1 Carbine he purchased in the early 1980s. Claymore writes …
This was one of the first NFA firearms I bought after getting my S.O.T. Had to be about 1983 or so. At that time dealers could get one each of all the Colt products and this one started my collection of them.
It’s an M-16a1 Carbine with the original 14 inch barrel.
This photo was taken by me using my brand new 35 mm camera that would go on to be used to take all the photos on my “adventures” that are posted on here.
This was just trying out different settings on the camera.
Claymores many adventures, and the guns he encountered on them, can be found here.
