* The M-16 was no slouch, either, and bashing the hell out of it was not only considered valid, but included ''in the manual.'' Specifically, if the action jams due to fouling or case telescoping to the point where pulling the charging handle doesn't eject the jammed cartridge, the correct procedure was to remove the magazine, grip the weapon by forestock and carrying handle, and bash the butt against the ground as hard as possible. A thump or two usually got the rifle to spit out the jammed brass.
