M-16 Versus AK-47

The two most common assault rifles in the world are the M16 by the United States military and its variants, and the  AK-47. These were the weapons we and the Communists used in Vietnam.

In Vietnam I had a small short version of the M-16. Marines did not have this rifle. It was kicked off a helicopter after a Medevac of an Army unit. My predeccessor on Hill 327 got the rifle and passed it onto me. I gave it to an Army truck driver when I left country. I never took a photo of it, but it looked something like the photo below.
