    It's still his design since the AR15 is a scaled-down AR10 (notwhitstanding the design changes Sullivan did on the AR10 too, i;e: the centered over the bore gas tube/key/cam pin and rear charging handle).

    And yes it was an AR15 before it was an XM16 since it was originally an ArmaLite designated rifle.
