So, back in the 1960s, when the war in Vietnam was just beginning to escalate, McNamara ordered the weapon not is modified adopted, in its current configuration, for the immediate question with all the services, in spite to receive reports/ratios noting several insufficiencies with M16 as a service rifle, including the lack of a chromium-striped boring and the room, of the 5.56 the instability projectiles of millimeter under Arctic conditions, and the fact that the great quantities of 5.56 millimeters of ammunition required for the immediate service were not available. Moreover, the army insisted for the inclusion of a plunger forwards assistance to help to push the bolt in the battery if a cartridge did not sit in the room by clogging or corrosion. Such a device had been incorporated in the posterior versions of the AR-10, which also had a room chromium-striped to prevent corrosion (Pikula).

The Colt, the denoyautor of Eugene, and the Air Force of the United States believed that a help forwards complicated unnecessarily to rifle it and added approximately $4.50 at its cost with supply, without the true advantage. Consequently, the design was cut in two alternatives: M16 of the Air Force without assistance forwards, and for the other service connects up, the XM16E1 with the assistance forwards. In November 1964, the army orders 85.000 XM16E1s for the experimental use, and the Air Force ordered 19.000 more. While waiting, the army put another project, the small systems of weapons of arm (SAWS), on the general needs for weapon with fire of infantry in an immediate future. They strongly recommended the immediate adoption of the weapon, so much so that they started to refer to it like M16. Later this year the Air Force officially accepted their first group as the United States rifle, gauges 5.56 millimeters, M16.
