No...the M16 is one of the most reliable weapons in the Army.

Yeah, I'd always heard that M16s weren't reliable, but since joining the Army I've been amazed to find how reliable they really are. It all comes down to maintenance though, I've seen guys neglect theirs, and have all kinds of problems. I have to say though, it takes a LOT of neglect to make them unreliable. I'd say that with the exception of the M24, the m16s are deffinately the most reliable in the Army.

Not unless you plan on crawling through swamps and rivers like they were when the "problems" were first discovered

That was fixed...there is currently a forth upgraded version of the M16...the M16/M4A3.

How about "crawling with one" before judging one from a book or movie?

There's actually a newer one than that. The M16A4, which has a flat-top receiver and a full railing system for the addition of accessories. I don't know if there are any differences between the internal parts of the 2 different models though. I actually HAVE crawled through quite a few swamps in Georgia with my M16, and it always worked when I needed it to. Like I said earlier, it all comes down to mainenance.

and on the down side, you can snap the butt stock off if you land on it wrong.

You may just as easily break your leg if you land on it wrong.
