    There’s a new article on the SOTCW website, by Grant Parkin. This one is about an experimental chute feed system for the M-16 rifle.

    Interesting.  Just slapping a bipod on an M-16 was a pretty poor excuse for a SAW, the belt-fed would have been a lot different.  By contrast, was able to fire a trio of Stoner 63s, each in a different configuration, and still don’t understand why it didn’t catch on beyond the SEALs.  Comparing it with contemporary M-16 that was also available really showed how superior the system was.  Even felt better to shoot.  It’s always a bummer when politics gets in the way of a good weapon system…
