Small arms question...
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

99 % certain that it's a T-48, produced by H7R for trials against the eventual M-14. all the visibe features match the photo

Hello all!

First post here and I believe that you are absolutely correct. The grooved forends match exactly and it's just an optical trick that makes the handguard look much larger than the museum version. I think that the museum example may be missing the circular cap/band under the front sight.

Yep, I'm persuaded he's got it right, too!

I guess the answer to the weapon is the T48, here is the write up from under the picture.
The Delackner Aerocycle was tested in 1956. It used a four-cylinder, 43 HP, water-cooled engine to turn counter-rotating blades...if you look closely, you'll notice COL(R) Sundby is standing on top of rotating rotor blades! The operator could move vertically by using the bicycle-like handle bars to control the speed of the blades, and could move horizontally by leaning forward, backward, and to the sides. The aerocycle is on display inside the main building.

In a related story, the Army team was 0 for 11 in 1956, because for some mysterious reason all their footballs went missing.....
