    Default THE M16 THAT STARTED IT ALL

    GunsAmerica - THE M16 THAT STARTED IT ALL - Class 3 Rifles



    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 - at least as far as 20th century military firearms are concerned.

    Just found this. it is one of our local dealers. You would have to be one hell of a collector to spend that kind of money on this rifle.

    That is a good find P.T. Damn that is a lot of money. I don't know anything about those old 16s but I heard the old "Mattey Matells" we had 40 yrs ago are going for some big bucks now.

    I'm surprised Reed Knight doesn't already own it, he seems to have every other significant AR15/M16 piece out there!
