I think it is, the point to getting it pinned to the top of the forum was so that people would see it and use it.

july 2nd 1967
Operation Buffalo (july 2 - july 14)
1st Battalion 9th Marines

That batallion was ambushed by 500 troop of the North Vietnamese 90thn regiment 1,5 miles NE of Con Thien.
They suffered 84 dead, 190 wounded

Both sides were reinforced.

Total casualties operation Buffalo
USA : 159 KIA , 345 WIA
Vietnam : 1.281 KIA , 2 POW

Problems with the newly-issued M16's.

Operation Buffalo: USMC Fight for the DMZ from K.Nolan is very good according to readers.

Correct. It is a very good, but terribly sad book. The M16 malfunctions will make your blood boil.

Tag to you.

Wasn't most of the problems associated with the M16 attributed to the ammunition? If I remember correctly cleaning kits weren't issued to troops.

My apologies for interrupting.

I've read that it jammed a lot and that it needed lots and lots of cleaning. I thought it was because the moving parts got contaminated very easely, but I'm not sure. If I'm not mistaken the special forces uses th M-16 with the H&K system which Colt could also supply but the army wanted the original concept.
