The M16A1 was a POS. I still can't believe it's still the issue rifle (M4 M16 bleh).

When first issued it was a jam-o-matic. We were told it didn't need cleaning. Yeah right.

The barrel was so thin you could easily warp it. (done when using open end flash hiders to open case of c-rats.)

We all tried to get our M14s back.

It's really too bad the SCAR-16 didn't make it but the SCAR-17 is still in service (along with the M14), something about a piston gun's reliability.
