This IBM 6715 electronic typewriter was also marketed as the "IBM Actionwriter".
It's a TA Adler-Royal clone, however it was clearly designed to resemble the earlier Selectrics. It has a very tactile, very clicky 'Model M" style keyboard. I like it a lot.
User Manual can be downloaded from my blog post (see below).

Typewriter enthusiast, Perth Western Australia. I began collecting typewriters in order to spend less time in front of a computer. Yeah, like that worked... !!
