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.
