The Vietnam war has been over for about 43 years but the legacy of the M16 still haunts the family of weapons in 2016. Much misinformation has been put out there from veterans. They give accounts to what happened but what is missing from the story is why. This video goes into the actual mechanical issues. What caused them, in some cases who caused them and what it finally took to get the rifle fixed or should I say adapted to the new ammunition using ball powder and to complete the development process which should have been done before the rifle hit the battlefields of Southeast Asia. Never before has this been taken on in-depth in any video or tv show. I have seen every documentary out there on the subject and not one of them got it right. Some in fact were blatantly wrong and severely incomplete. There is no opinion of what happened back then. Only mechanical explanation which is scientifically explained. I take you through the facts in this hour long video and explain what really happened with the M16 in Vietnam.
