Again it was the politician that was hand in glove
with industry that committed totaly to the M16 as a
replacement. As shipments came in, M1s & M14s were
dispossed of. When they saw and it was proven the new
M16 was hackin it, it was to late to do anything about
it. Other than pay for it's development with lives.
Just like my Prez, I love my country, but I ain't
to fond of the government!
