the M16 is a pray and spray weapon, the M14 is a reach out and touch and is very accruate. It's select fire function was pretty useless because firing the weapon on full auto make it impossible to control. it's a far better sniper gun or a survival gun that can penetrate hiding places than it is when confronting SWAT teams and the like.

In fact, I believe I read once where they shipped in conversion kits to keep the M14 from firing in full auto.
