i am submitting this comment some 6 years after this post went up.

no responses, a pity, as the ares people have done any number of interesting things, to include putting an upper on an ar-15 lower that will make the rifle function as a machine gun.

to me, it looks very functional, more so than stoner's solution. but, i am an old tired & retired lawyer, and what do i know? eh?

but, that is my story, and i am sticking to it. at the saying goes.

p.s. and, yes, i think the johnson semi model of 1941 a better rifle than the m-1 in many respects. but, it was already adopted when johnson started developing his semi-auto, to correct flaws in the m-1, as he saw them.

israel almost adopted an auto rifle similar to the johnson auto version of his rifle, but chose an auto version of the fn fal.

nothing wrong with the johnson, save the israeli's kind of rushed its development, and went with something more "finished."

tough company, the m-1 and the fn fal. no fleas on them, whatsoever. proved in battle.

such is life.
