    Without a doubt the most famous and most documented Armalite/Colt M16 in existence, serial no 106 manufactured in 1959 (the 7th production gun) and of course the earliest known gun to exist. Yes, this is the gun that Gen Curtis LeMay shot the coconuts and melons with at the cocktail party and then turned to the Cooper-McDonald rep and said,"I want 10,000 of them and I want them yesterday!". It is said this gun was also shot by Pres Kennedy (off the Presidential Yacht), Batista, MacNamarra, Diem, and a host of other important people. Traveling to Viet Nam twice, its history is part of America's History, and I feel there is no other gun in existence as important as this firearm (well besides the AK)- at least as far as 20th century military firearms are concerned.

    Curtis LeMay was a genocidal maniac, also.

    Yeah, no. I'd rather buy five AR-15s and 700,000+ rounds of 5.56. Thanks. :bigthumb:

    Of course he did, that was his talent. His experience in World War II made him very adept at killing large masses of people. He called the peaceful resolution of the Cuban Missile Crisis our greatest defeat, and was obsessed with starting World War III. He was one of the few people in history who could truly be called a bloodthirsty sadist.
