I know I'll regret this, but:

That is dated 1967. The 1965-dated FM23-8 refers to an M14E2.

This runs back to people now calling the Stg44 an MP44... never was a machine pistol. But go ahead and rewrite history... suits you. Thanks guys, I did enjoy this.
No, it wasn't a machine pistol. That's not why it was referred to as one at one point.
