They might have been better off with the M-14. It fires a a .308 round instead of a 7.62x39 and has a lot more range and a lot more penetrating power. Partucularly useful if the enemy is wearing body armor.

Good point, but if they are still running around with the .38/9mm and a 12ga. ANYTHING would be better, the M-14 would be outstanding.

"It fires a a .308 round instead of a 7.62x39" M-16 fires a 5.56, the 7.62x39 is what the sks/ak fires.

.308 is the same as the 7.62.
