    I didn't say Mattel manufactured the weapons, only that some had the name clearly on them.

    There was a story on this on the evolution of the M16. I've heard different things though. Some say Mattel produced M16's for a short time, others say they produced the grip, which had their name and logo, which lead to troops believing they were made by Mattel.

    In wartime, (barring the last 2 since we were a little overstocked) - All manner of companies start producing military items, which is probably a 180* from what they were producing.

    According to the link I provided, Mattel made the grips only. The name was stamped on the grip leading one to believe the entire weapon was.
    I was initially issued one of these, but later on had one that just said Colt and there were no other visible changes to the weapon.

    Is this a test?
    My last issued weapon in 1977 was stamped Colt, although there were some still some GM Hydramatics around.
    I never meant to allude that Mattel manufactured the weapon, which is a myth.

    I recall lots of my Bros coming home saying that the M16 they were issued was a F'in Mattel toy. Dunno if they were referring to the stamp on the stock or if they thought the entire gun was made by Mattel. I do know that to this day many of them will not shoot, carry or own any "plastic" gun. To be honest I used to be one of them. Bought my first polymer gun an XD four or five years ago and my first AR two years ago. Stubborn and old school is not always the best school of thought. I liked the XD so much I bought a couple more and I am sure a few more AR are in my future at least one in .308. Plastic guns rock

    He's simply frustrated from all the 'xperts' bad mouthing the Bushmaster. If you review the comments of those who actually own the weapon and have used it, most like it very much. Seems to be the outsiders that love to hate it.

    Your third post here is to stir the pot in a thread that's over a year old?
