Winchester .224 E2 manual

Today, we have for you an original manual for the Winchester Light Rifle in .224 Winchester E2. This was a rifle in competition with the early AR-15 to replace the M-14 in US military service. The .224 E2 cartridge was similar to, but not interchangeable with the .222 Remington, eventually to become the 5.56×45 NATO round.

This manual covers operation, disassembly, and maintenance of the Winchester Light Rifle, as well as including dimensions drawings of the cartridge and chamber, and a comparison to the .222 Remington Special.You can download it from the link below, or find it along with our other manuals on the Original Manuals page in the Vault.

  • You wouldn’t happen to have the other typewritten page of “History of Development the Cal. .22 Center Fire Military Cartridge”, would you? You can just make out portions of it through the page shown on Page 48 of the .pdf.
