Not that the M16 doesnt have some advantages, despite its awful operating system.
Oh boy, now things are really going to get heated!!

Just keep it respectful for each other, and all will be fine. It should be fun reading this one from the sidelines.

Okay, I said I would stay out of it, but I will add this:

What's wrong with adopting the M16A2?
Well, whats wrong with the USA adopting the SA-80? Or the XM8? Or the G3? Or the ...???

The M16, as good as it is, is not perfect for everyone, every condition, etc. Much like sniper rifles, find your requirements, then find the rifle that best fits it. The UK has different requirements than the USA, Canada, Germany, Iraq, etc. I kind of like the comment about having your own unique weapon for your country... just a little home town pride.

I'm not chastising anyone, just was a little curious as to why one would think that the M16 should be adopted by a different country.

:D
