Name of a prolific inventor of military weaponry, Eugene Stoner. Most significantly, Stoner developed the AR-15 rifle while working at ArmaLite. ArmaLite, being an engineering and R&D facility, sold the design and manufacturing rights to Colt Firearms. Colt marketed the AR-15 to the U.S. military, which adopted it and reclassified it as the M-16 and its sub-variants. The Stoner-designed AR-15 platform has been the longest serving U.S. military rifle of all time and is a battle-proven design.
