The famous M16 rifle become standard issue for US and ARVN infantrymen during the mid and late 1960s. It fired .223 caliber/5.56mm bullets at a rate of 750-900 rounds per minute on full automatic. The rifle had an effective range of about 435 yards. M16s issue to combat troops in Vietnam War is still a controversial issue for the reliability problems it had in it's early days. M16 did eventually prove itself in combat and they remain still much used weapons around the world.
M16 development was guided by the Army during the 1950s, which culminated in a field trial in Vietnam in the early 1960s. This lead to its official adoption in 1964 by the USAF as the M16; with some changes the Army adopted the M16A1 officially in 1967, though various intermediate versions were already being fielding during the period under experimental designations.
