It is the Model 1923 Auto-Rifle as designed by the Auto-Ordnance Company and manufactured by Colt Firearms Company. The Colt Firearms Company and the Auto-Ordnance Company had a working relationship in the development and manufacturing of the 1921 Thompson Submachine Guns. So this rifle was an outgrowth of that partnership.
It holds 5-6 rounds of 30-06 ammunition in a conventional box magazine, again similar to the 1903/1917 rifles.
