Description - M 16 by Jean Huon

In 1965 when the US intervened in San Domingo military observers noted that the para's of the 82nd Airborne were armed with a completely new gun made of light alloy and plastic.This was the M 16, a weapon developed by an aeronautical engineer based on the design of Eugene Stoner. It was subsequently used in Vietnam and it was there that it became world renowned. With a number of adaptations more than ten million M 16's have been produced and it is in service in at least 80 countries.Jean Huon tells the fascinating story of this weapon. Packed with more than 200 full color images and 200 black and white photos, The M 16 is a comprehensive history of the development of this key weapon. The book shows every conceivable version, variant, and accessory of the weapon. It even includes versions made under license by other manufacturers. The M 16 will be of enormous interest to collectors and gun enthusiasts and to historians of the Vietnam and Post Vietnam eras.REVIEWS "This is an ideal reference book for shooters, arms students, military historians, and anyone else interested in the AR-15/M16 rifles."Gun Week 2005
