Why? Because George Patton said so 78 years ago? He also said we'd be home by Christmas, and that was a fairy tale, too. The M1 was the first generation, and at the time it was good, but we have better toys to play with nowadays.

The Garand won WW2, a Korean "police action," and served credibly in the early years of Vietnam.

The M14 never made it to lunch ... and was soon replaced by that 5.56 plastic mattle junk, which was never a "battle rifle" anyway. By the time they got around to improving the M16, we'd gotten booted out of South East Asia and went on to do nothing much with the black plastic thing until Grenada.

Don't care if it annoys you.
