06 October 2021
Back

Did the M 16 lose the Vietnam War for the United States? That's a bold claim and obviously an inaccurate one. BUT, there is an interesting story about the M 16 as it pertains to its reliability (or notorious lack thereof) that we dive into. A little war history, a little product design, a lot of non-expert discussion of a topic brought to mind on the heels of our withdrawal from Afghanistan.

Maker Minute: Mikhail Kalashnikov

Honorable Mention: Kenmore Progressive Vacuum Cleaner
