The plastic, no-account M-16 rabbit shooter that our Army warriors have painfully packed since early in the Vietnam War might at long last be on its way out.
The hot contender currently being tested by the Army to replace these lemons is the XM-8, a revolutionary smart-weapon being put through its paces by professionals who, so far, give it two thumbs up. It’s a different kind of rifle, lighter and less expensive, yet it offers additional features and performance not available in any other assault rifle in the world.
The M-16 has been a POS since it’s inception. Somebody, probably connected to the Johnson administration, got very rich off of it, but it killed a lot of the wrong people.
I hope this is not another “improvement” that proves to be worse
