I felt more secure carrying a nearly worn out Springfield made 1911 .45 automatic than the M-16s that were being issued in 1968... I was a TACParty radio operator and well protected by grunts most of the time and could pick up a M-16 from a friendly KIA or WIA when the situation called for me to need one... The military had to honor a contract that required them to purchase ball type powder from Olin when the M-16 was designed to use stick type powder made by Western... I never fired a first generation M-16 that didn't jam up after firing just a few rounds.. We could put no more than 17 rounds in a 20 round magazine because the bolt would short cycle if we used more even with the updated ones... I have since fired a full auto CAR -16 that was capable of firing over 2000 rounds before it was cleaned without any problems.. People will rely on the "spray and pray" method rather than aim a weapon with a high capacity magazine.


To a trained person, the HCmags mean more well aimed shots before having to reload. How did you like the idea of the new three round burst weapons?
