Right Shoulder Arm!

By the way, I always preferred the M 14 over the M 16.


Roger that Allen!
I always carried a M14A(auto) with me when warranted. If you ever want to read a great book I helped with information, and testing, of the failures of the initial M16, it is called
"Misfire: The Tragic Failure of the M16 in Vietnam
Book by Bob Orkand and Lyman Duryea" Both officers.


Another failure is the caliber of the round was very unstable in bamboo. The bamboo leaves were so strong, it would alter the trajectory of the round off target. The 7.62 round had no trouble with bamboo.

I often wondered how many soldiers we lost in Vietnam due to the ammunition failures, jams, rounds blowing up while still in the chamber killing the GI.

Yeah the M14 was heavy but what a darn fine weapon.
Thanks!
