I made these for a APC but no longer needed to went overboard a bit now they live on garage wall . They are 1:1 scale and 90% operational with bolts , bolt locks , barrel extensions , acellorators , cams , extractors and working feed systems. What I omitted are the bolt internals and yet to build rear sight for M2 (have made working one for M1919). the M16 and AK 47 are both 1:1 store bought kits with all internals and can be stripped and assembled as per real ones.

I love the M-16, it looks like the same type I used in the Air Force during Vietnam.  I remember LS made a whole series of kits from the early west to the 70s.  Have you seen another kit of that one?  I would love to get one, or would you consider selling it?

Two of my favorite weapons were usually carried on our armor and M-151 jeeps. 

The 90mm recoiless was rarely brought out, but the 40mm XM-174 went on all our armored vehicles and sometimes the jeeps and M-715 weapons trucks.  The 90mm had a tendency to make people on the base nervous when they saw it.

They pop up on eBay in the $175-250 range intermittently.

The L/S M16A1 kit is a fussy uilt, and it really wants use of metal tubing to reinforce several of the joints, and rather a lont of gluing threaded connections.  But, it's spot on for dimensions.

The L/S XM177 kit is actually much sturdier--just about twice as rare anymore if not three or four times.

The L/S kit of the AKM (which, perversely, has an orange AK-74 magazine) is very sturdy, and a good solid build.

A number Army Viet Nam scans from hundreds yet to be done:
