    Cool!   I wonder if they came up with the Picatinny Rail?

    according to WIKI,,,

    The rail itself dates from work by the A.R.M.S. company in the early 1980s and Otto Repa in standardizing the Weaver design.[citation needed] Specifications for the M16A2E4 rifle and the M4E1 carbine received type classification generic in December 1994.[citation needed] These were the M16A2[3] and the M4[4] modified with new upper receivers where rails replaced hand guards.[verification needed]

    The rail is named after the Picatinny Arsenal in New Jersey, which was tasked in 1992 to develop a standardized mounting system after the U.S. Army was dissatisfied with the contemporary products on the market.
