Notes

The M4 stock (with telescoping wire stock) was produced by John Bianchi & Son, Temecula, California, between 1964 and 1968. Approximatly 6,000 to 8,000 were made.


This weapon is very similer to the Johnson Arms Inc. Spitfire Model 5773, introduced in 1966. The significant fifference is that the weapon is not marked Johnson, which it would have been if they made it. They did imploy the M4 stock, so confusion could arise.
