This video was originally posted to only Full30 and considering how much the channel has grown in five years it seemed appropriate to bring Mr. Sullivan's thoughts about the M16 in Vietnam to the larger audience as an InRange Classic.
The M16 got itself a reputation for being fatally flawed in the early days of its use in Vietnam, jamming and leading to deaths of US servicemen.
Jim Sullivan, one of the original designers of the rifle, explains what the problem was, and why it had such a dramatic effect on the rifle's operation.
InRange is an online video program dedicated to the study of guns, shooting, gun culture, and history. We dispel the myths, promote the good stuff that hasn't gotten the attention it deserves.
