Even faster: oarray = larray + rarray
C:\Python25>python -m timeit -s"from array import array; N = 10**6" "a
100 loops, best of 3: 9.57 msec per loop
C:\Python25>python -m timeit -s"from array import array; N = 10**6; b =
array('h', )*(N/2); c = b[:]" "a = b + c"
100 loops, best of 3: 5.7 msec per loop
