Mp4gunner, I still tend to hate the AR's because our M-16e1's were always jamming up & blowing case heads off. One night on LZ Albany during a VC attack, out of 8 guys on our end of the LZ, only ONE rifle was still operating:mad:. I'd be curious of your dad's experience with it? They tell me that it was a problem with a powder change early on.
He may also have the same experience as I had, that if you were engaging close up (under 30-40Y), you had better shoot for the bridge of their nose (CNS) if you wanted them to go right down & not keep firing at you after they have taken a couple hits in the torso. I wished many times that I still had my M-14.
220th? Maybe 227, 228 or 229th at that time?
