Though I didn't see an author credited, I'm guessing you contributed significantly to the article based on the last sentence -

"Page acknowledgments:

A special thanks to Steven Norton for his tireless work on the subject of USMC sniper rifles of the World Wars.
"

It was actually Tim Plowman who wrote it out and put together the website. He really did an amazing job.

The documents and research I think are really a combination of all three of us, Tim, Myself, and Andrew Stolinski. I think all of us had a part to play in that research.

On the Unertl snipers, Tim's and mine are the ones that are pictured the most on there. But we also have a Unertl Sniper group of about 20-25 guys who own real rifles and they contributed pics as well.

I really am a big fan of the website. I like the free exchange of info, and I think it has helped to correct a lot of the misconceptions on those rifles.

Tim has done an excellent job on the website. The only critique I have is maybe separate tabs showcasing original rifles/serial numbers and then breaking down the rifles and providing an in depth look at the components. ...if done you'd see A LOT of similarities between each serial number, which is what we've learned and know to be the case.

The website has gone a long way to dispelling a lot of conjecture and previous bad info.

I'm grateful to have my original rifle included
