So it is not Soviet propaganda anymore, but a reality, that the M-16 is a piece of junk and has always been. Even in Iraq, it has been used to an extent, instead of the US issued weaponry. Just look at the video below and you will see. Scroll to time 2:13 and you will see what Kalashnikov is talking about in the flesh.

our .223 doesn't have enough 'grunt' to reach out and touch someone with any degree of accuracy beyond 200 meters.

Originally posted by Rooky This is'nt the first time something like this has happened, for example the m4, which is used by many Special Ops units, can jam, or blow up in your face if taken to enviroments where it could be exposed to water, sand, and mud.
"My weapon was overheating," McKaig said, according to Cubbison's report. "I had shot about 12 magazines by this point already and it had only been about a half hour or so into the fight. I couldn't charge my weapon and put another round in because it was too hot, so I got mad and threw my weapon down."

Depends on barrel length. The m16a2 is good to 800 meters and deadly accurate. The AK may work dirty but its the one not accurate.

See you often got that Paddy, especially when firing a propper rifle quickly!
