If you buy a truckload of ArmaLite, you get to keep the truck. The trucks… and they have a parking lot full of them at their Geneseo, IL HQ, are military 35A2s, commonly known as a “duece and a half.”
They’re still working out the details on this but Armalite says any order of in stock or “rapid response” product that will fill a truck means the truck is yours. More info pending! Armalite.com.
From the Armalite headquarters:
…Mark Westrom came into the office and said we’re having a truckload sale. He said if you buy a truckload of ArmaLite, you get to keep the truck. The trucks… and we have a parking lot full of them here in Geneseo… are military M35A2′s, commonly known as a “duece and a half.”
Since then, we spent some time figuring out exacly how many guns DID fit in a deuce. We measured the cargo area of the trucks and the dimensions of a standard AR10’s shipping box. Then we set our crack engineering staff on the math problem of how many boxes would fit in the cargo area.
We got the answer, but we’re not going to share it with you. Instead, we’re running a contest. Guess how many guns fit in a deuce and a half. The prize is one of our new SPR Mod 1 complete uppers. Here’s a discription of the Mod 1:
Its Special Purpose Rifle (SPR) has proved it for years. Now, the introduction of the ArmaLite SPR Mod 1 proves it once more, in spectacular fashion. The SPR Mod 1 is a forged, one-piece upper receiver/rail system with exclusive detachable side and bottom rails. That’s right, you can change your 1913 rails to fit your changing needs for sights… lights… lasers… grips… or swivels. The SPR Mod 1’s one-piece construction offers you a continuous optics platform (COP). There’s no gap to bridge between receiver and upper rail when installing your scope or sights. This one-piece construction’s strength and rigidity will also keep your sights zeroed in the most trying conditions.
To enter the contest, e-mail your guess to firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure that in the topic box its says exactly, “TRUCKLOAD CONTEST.” Your entry must be e-mailed to us by March 31, 2010. Please, only one entry per e-mail address. The name of everyone with the correct answer will be put in a hat, and one winner will be pulled at random. Please don’t call or e-mail the factory with questions. The truck model is M35A2. The year doesn’t matter because the cargo area is the same size in all the trucks.
