Why did Eugene Stoner create the M16?
Eugene Stoner invented the M16 because the military was looking for a reliable rifle. Eugene heard that and went to work on the rifle. The military loved it so they adopted the gun and mass produced it for the soldiers on the front line.
The AR-10 was designed by Eugene Stoner in 1955. The AR-10 fired the 7.62x51 NATO round. The AR-10 was rejected by the military in favour of the M14. However, an updated version of the AR-10, the AR-15, was adopted by the US military and designated the M16. The M16 has since developed into several versions, including the A1, A2, A3, and A4.
The M16, a 5.56x45mm assault rifle, is based on the AR-15 rifle originally designed by Eugene Stoner, and produced by ArmaLite. Upon entering service with the United States armed forces, the M16 name was adopted, and the contract to build these rifles was given to Colt's Manufacturing Company. Since then Fabrique Nationale d'Herstal (FNH), H&R Firearms, the General Motors Hydramatic Division, and Sabre Defence have also built the M16 rifle for the U.S. military.
Eugene Stoner is given credit for creating the automatic rifle system that evolved into the M16. As with any prototype, there were several problems that needed to be overcome to produce a dependable rifle, the AR15/M16 is no different. There have been hundreds of modifications & improvements made to the weapon by hundreds of people, even to this day people are personalizing & modifying the weapon system.

Spraying bullets, rather than long range accurate firing. More were sent in 1962. By 1963, M16s became general issue to US forces in Vietnam.
The M16 assault rifle originated as the AR-15, designed by Eugene Stoner (1922-1997) at ArmaLite in 1957. The AR-15 itself was a scaled down version of the 7.62mm AR-10. ArmaLite sold the design of the AR-15 to Colt, which submitted the rifle to the United States military command for testing. It was subsequently adopted into service in 1963 as the M16.

No one can claim solo credit for making the world first M4. Eugene Stoner invented the AR10(7.62x51mm) in 1955 but it was turned down by the army. In 1960 Stoner's chief assistant, Jim Sullivan and Robert Fremont scaled the AR10 to take the smaller 5.56x45mm cartridge naming it the AR15, the army classified it as the M16 and the M4 is just a cut down M16. In the mid 1960's Colt made the CAR-15 which…
