Simonrichter, if you're interested in this particular aspect of the Vietnam war, there's a book called "The Tunnels of Cu Chi" that you might want to look up; the author was with one of the "tunnel rat" units, and he reports what the fighting was like, the booby traps that they ran into, and the weapons that were used. He says that one of the people he knew preferred using an M2 Carbine (full-auto) with the stock cut down to the pistol-grip and the barrel cut down to the barrel band, on the grounds that even if he didn't hit what he was firing at, it would scare them badly enough that it would give him time to get back out of the tunnel and block it with C4.
