The M16

The M16

story continues below...

The only question surrounding this book is; why has it taken so long to appear? The M16 is unarguably one of the most instantly recognisable weapons in the history of firearms, but written by a firearms expert the wait has been worth it. Other works have appeared on the M16 but this title is concise and covers every aspect of the weapon from its concept to the latest variant in a way which is more accessible than larger volumes. This work contains everything one needs to know about the weapon and the author covers the full gamut of combat service with the military and law enforcement roles. Ammunition data and military assessment of the weapon is fascinating stuff for the firearms enthusiast and shooter alike. This is one of the latest in the ‘Weapon’ series from Osprey and leads one to close this review with a question: Why don’t armies around the world use these titles as weapon training manuals, because they are just as instructive as the official titles and probably make more interesting reading matter?
