Article name should be changed to "TRW Low Maintenance Rifle"[edit]

"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)
Addendum: it probably is worth noting somewhere within this article though of TRW's former name/acronym meaning. I'll be willing to chip it in after your moves. Fukoku Kyohei (talk) 07:20, 27 September 2012 (UTC)

Didn't have much else to do, so I went ahead and pulled it off myself. If there were any problems, feel free to notify me and correct accordingly. Fukoku Kyohei (talk) 07:57, 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)
Oops. I didn't notice you had already added "formerly Thompson Ramo Wooldrige". Totally up to you. Cheers, Overjive (talk) 18:02, 27 September 2012 (UTC)
