Similar and equally plausible reason for the pose. 

I think you are onto something with the rotoscoped image.  I suspect it was more to merge a picture of a cop and a picture of some bayonet lunges.   That seems to lineup really well.

And I'm going 9 o clock as well.  That is not over the butt cheek, unless you have a side but, and hey, I ain't judging!

M16, which looks fresh out of the crate. Also see some M1 Garands

I think that might actually be a Colt 601. That would make it very early indeed. It’s got the waffle mag and the tiny triangle charging handle and three prong flash hider.

That is a mid to late 60's Colt SP1.  Looks just like my 1966 SP1 but with a little more wear.

There are a few differences that point to it being an earlier production than the civilian SP-1s. Like I mentioned before, it has the triangle CH, and if you look at the takedown pins, they have a divot. The SP-1s don’t have the divot takedown pins. It’s also got the chrome slickside  bolt carrier. The SP-1 doesn’t.  It’s a 601, maybe definitely a 602. Hard to tell without a better resolution on the mag release or color to see the color of the stock. It has the improved 3 prong duckbill flash hider. It’s an early production of the 602 as the later models have the same charging handle as your SP-1. 
 

Actually found this pic shown as an example of the 602 in Vietnam.

I see a different hammer pin, rear sling mount and no forward assist.

Pistol grip looks like it has more angle but it has been many years since I have had a M-16 or M-16 family member in my hands.

Always go with a large caliber if you can handle it.

As a former artilleryman, it would be interesting to see the process of loading, arming, and firing of a rail gun. I've seen footage of them being shot, but not the entire process.

Not sure what is going on but it looks like they are having a good time.

Thanks for posting that, Red333, but I should have been clearer. I was interested in how they loaded the gun that took the projectiles from the picture that showed it over twice as tall as the soldiers standing in front of it. The gun in your video was a 208 mm projectile weighing 551 lbs and carrying 61 lbs of HE. The projectile in the picture would be many times that. Your video was indeed interesting though.

I was mostly in self-propelled artillery, (175mm gun in my avatar, and 8 inch howitzer which were both on the M110 chassis), and the A-gunner had to hand-crank the 18,000 lbs (IIRC) barrel into elevation position when the hydraulics went out. That was not at all fun! There was a flash of a scene of about 6 to 8 men hand-cranking the elevation on that gun so I can't imagine what they needed to hand-crank the barrel that took the huge projectile in the picture. By comparison, the 8 inch projectile that the U.S. used was 208 lbs, and the 16 inch projectiles on the battleship's guns weighed up to 2,700 lbs. The projectile in the picture is well over 16 inches in diameter. :dropjaw:

Damn! That was cool! A 14,000 lbs projectile is mind-boggling. :dropjaw:

4 Women pose for a picture in Maryland in 1950. They were showing off the weapons they used to round up 4 men who had been terrorizing the neighborhood for 3 weeks. They shot at the men, chased them down, forced them to surrender, and then waited for the police to arrive.
