Article name should be changed to "TRW Low Maintenance Rifle"
"Thompson Ramo Wooldrige Inc." was legally renamed to "TRW Inc." in July 1965, six years before the start of the development of the Low Maintenance Rifle. The title of this article should be renamed to "TRW Low Maintenance Rifle", as shown on the rifle manual. There are six webpages that would need to re-point to the new name:
Thompson Ramo Wooldridge Low-Maintenance Rifle (redirect page) Thompson Ramo Woolridge Low-Maintenance Rifle (redirect page) User:AlexNewArtBot/USFederalSearchResult/archive15 User:AlexNewArtBot/MilitarySearchResult/archive66 User talk:SithiR Wikipedia:Editor assistance/Requests/Archive 70 Template:TRW
I can rename the page, and create a redirect page from the old name so the change would be invisible. I would also change the links to it except for the user pages above, where I would notify them that they can change their links. Let me know if you have problem with this. Fixing this will get harder as more people link to it. Thanks. Overjive (talk) 06:56, 27 September 2012 (UTC)
- Ah, here we go: a boffin with more knowledge on the subject! You've my full support of the move provided it's done clean and without any character, spacing, or spelling/grammatical mistakes. I'm very grateful of your initiative. Fukoku Kyohei (talk) 07:18, 27 September 2012 (UTC)
- The name change is completed, if I understand the process correctly. I'm not much of a boffin, especially since I had to look that term up. I'll leave the article content up to you. If it's any help, I don't think many people would recognize "Thompson Ramo Wooldrige", and I was born in 1959! Thanks for your help. Overjive (talk) 16:36, 27 September 2012 (UTC)
Outward appearance kinda reminds me of the FG-42 paratrooper battle rifle.
