I never made it to Vietnam because of the only lottery that I considered myself a winner at the time. Had a few friends fighting there and a really good friend die there. Someday I wood like to get a tracing of his name from the wall.
I always wanted a gun that represented the Vietnam War, but never got one. Finally after all these years, I am building a gun from 60's- 70's vintage Colt parts. It will be the closest thing that I will have to a good M16. Won't be the real thin, but darn close.
